No, not tiny sprinkles for doughnuts, these are tiny doughnut shaped sprinkles! Inspired by these Cheerios into donuts tutorials on Pinterest, Studio DIY decided to make these adorable minis and use them as cake toppers. I can’t help but think how cute they would be on cupcakes or, even better, mini cupcakes! Since doughnuts are involved does this mean it’s okay to eat these cakes or cupcakes for breakfast?
Cheerios or Cheerio-like Cereal (I used Trader Joe’s O’s!)
Chocolate and/or Candy Melts (For the “frosting”)
Sprinkles (The tiniest nonpareils you can find are best!)
Melt your chocolate in the microwave, stirring at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. There’s really two ways you can decorate up these donuts. A speedier way to get these guys frosted is to lightly dip the top of each cheerio into the chocolate. You might need to use a toothpick to re-poke the hole in the center. The other way, if you want to really control how the frosting looks, is to dip the end of a toothpick in some chocolate and “paint” it on the top of the doughnut. No matter how you frost it, right after you do so, sprinkle on a few sprinkles by hand. I recommend not overloading them with sprinkles if you want to keep them donut-y, since they are so small!
BAM! When I look at that picture below, I kinda think about how fun it would be to surprise your kiddos with a special doughnut treat on top of their cereal! Hehe!
Top your cake, cupcakes or other sugary sweet with these and you’re good to go!
