I can’t take credit for any part of this adorable Donut Acorn. My mom made them for a bunko party and I asked her to take some pictures so I could share them here. They are too cute and perfect for fall. I think she first saw them on pinterest.
My parents live on a lake called Oak Run. It is named after the many beautiful oak trees around the lake. Even the church they go to was named after the sturdy oak tree. So it just made sense to make these acorns for her first Oak Run bunko party. It sounds like the ladies all had a great time.
The “un-recipe” has just a few ingredients, donut holes, chocolate frosting, heath bits, and pretzels. Half of the donut hole is dipped in the frosting. Mom said spreading it on the donut was a lot easier if you froze the donut first, and warmed the frosting in the microwave a bit (may need to thin it with a small amount of milk). Then roll the chocolate coated donut in Heath bits. You will probably need to chop them up a bit, a slap chop works well for this. You could also use sprinkles or chopped nuts. Then just stick in a pretzel stem!
