Did you know National Donut Day is on Friday? Oh joy, oh boy…I love donuts!! So of course I am going to celebrate in a big way! But, not with a donut recipe. No, I’m a wee bit too lazy. And frankly, I’m still working on my donut making skills. And by working…I mean doing absolutely nothing to get better and pretending like I’ve tried. Donuts are not one of my skills. I plan on learning and trying. But, as of right now…nope. And that’s just fine by me. I got video games to play with my son. It’s all about priorities people!

But, these adorable Rice Krispie donuts can substitute for the traditional version. Or stand on their own sprinkled feet. They are just that adorable.
See how I shaped them like donuts and then called them “Rice Krispie Donuts” so that they can count? Sneaky.
These Rice Krispie Donuts are fast and easy. I know people say that all the time, but in this case, it’s fairly true. And they’re a terrific idea for a party!! Especially one that will also have ice cream or glitter or little girls. You can see it, can’t you?
Tip: use a traditional treat in a new way to make something awesome. No need to reinvent the wheel!
Simply make the classic treats in a donut shape, frost, and cover in sprinkles. That easy!
Tips for making Rice Krispie donuts:
- let the Rice Krispies cool a bit before shaping. That way you won’t burn your hands.
- keep your hands buttered or wet so they don’t stick. Oh, and if you’re using spray oil, wipe down the bottle after you finish. The Bellie wasn’t too happy when she reached for the cooking spray and got her hand covered in oil.
If you like this Rice Krispie donuts recipe, you might also like our recipes for galettes, mini pavlovas, candy corn fruit cups, or our celery train. Okay, I don’t think the celery train recipe belongs in that list, but The Bellie made me include it. I wanted to include desserts…but The Bellie said that because the celery train is adorable, it fits. You’ve been warned.
Nellie says that you shouldn’t give your kids too much sugar, it’s bad for them. She’s right. But, you already know that. Keep it healthy folks. Sugar in moderation!
