How To Make Donut Hole Acorns
Prep time
Total time
Fun, quick and easy fall/harvest themed dessert - make 24 servings in 10 minutes!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
  • 24 glazed donut holes
  • 24 mini-pretzel sticks
  • ½ bag of chocolate chips or chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  1. Melt the chocolate - to do this...use a double-broiler, or make it faster by melting in the microwave. Only melt for 30 seconds the first time. Stir them up well. Then microwave for another 30-seconds (or less) and then stir until fully melted. DO NOT MICROWAVE AGAIN...chocolate burns very easily in the microwave and you shouldn't need to melt for more than one minute total. Just keep stirring until all melted.
  2. Immediately dip your donut holes in the chocolate.
  3. Then immediately dip in sprinkles.
  4. Stick the pretzel in the top and let it cool/harden.
  5. Serve up and enjoy!
