Ready for the school bell? We have some Back to School Snack Ideas including this easy no bake Apple Donut Recipe. Kids snacks that celebrate the start of the school year.
School Snack Ideas Apple Donuts
What are you first day of school traditions? Historically, we have always gone out for ice cream after school. Apparently, we are not alone because we always ran into friends in our ice cream runs. One year I found myself at Target and let the kids pick up a treat in the toy aisle – I am a sucker. As more kids came along, our after school adventures ran into younger siblings naps and I had to get creative at home. Thus evolved our First Day of School Snack Ideas you can make at home.
We wanted more Back to School Snack Ideas and I am sure you did too. From Graham Cracker Pencils to Chalkboard Cookies to Apple Nutter Butter Pops, we have plenty of creative kids snacks to welcome your kids into the front door! This year, we bring you donuts!
These apple doughnuts do not disappoint. Have as a surprise after school snack for the kids or let them enjoy the process as these donuts are incredibly easy for little hands to make!
Your ingredients are pretty simple. Pick up donuts at the store as your base – no oven necessary!
Apple Donuts Ingredients:
1. Lay out a piece of parchment paper.
2. Add 1 cup of red frosting to a microwave safe bowl, heat for 15 seconds and mix.
3. Carefully hold the sides of each donut and dip the top into the melted red frosting, let any excess drip off and set onto the parchment paper.
4. Immediately top with sprinkles.
5. Break the pretzel sticks in half and stick one into the top of each doughnut.
6. Form the fondant into small balls and form into a leaf.
7. Dip the bottom of the leaf into the frosting and stick onto the top of the donut.
