Acorn Donut Holes

Acorn Donut Holes are completely festive and incredibly easy to create. Made with store bought sour cream donut holes, chocolate sprinkles, chocolate frosting and pretzels. Such a great idea for any fall activity, Thanksgiving or just as an after school snack!

If you are looking for more Thanksgiving no bake recipes for the season, I have some fantastic ones! The kids LOVE these Turkey Pops and this Pumpkin Pie Party Mix is also another no bake sweet. I also have the best Roasted Turkey Recipe that gives you a step by step instruction on how to make the tastiest bird ever!

Fall Is The Best Season

Fall time is my absolutely my favorite time of year.

I love the crisp air.

The aromas of warm cinnamon and apples.

And I most definitely love all the comforting recipes.

These little donut holes are not only yummy and cute. To me they symbolize being a child again! Walking to school bundled up and shuffling my feet through the crunchy leaves on the ground.

Just a simple little sweet treat that you can make with your kids. I know they will love them as much as my boys do!

How To Make Acorn Donut Holes

  1. Line a half sheet baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Pour the sprinkles into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Break each pretzel stick in half and set aside.
  4. Open up frosting tub and remove the entire foil lining making sure to get all of it.
  5. Place the frosting in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds.
  6. Stir and the frosting should be melted. If not, heat for another 15-20 seconds and stir again. You just want it to be a bit more softened and thinner.
  7. Dip the top third of each donut hole into the melted frosting and gently shake off any excess.
  8. Immediately dip into the chocolate jimmies being sure to coat all of the frosting.
  9. Press half a pretzel stick into the center top and set on the parchment lined tray.
  10. Let them set for about 20 minutes before serving.
  11. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
