Found this donut hole snowman recipe idea in “Parents” magazine. Thought this would be a fun project for my 4-year-old and I, since we would be hosting Christmas morning breakfast at our house. Wouldn’t it be adorable to have donut hole snowmen with our coffee!?

How this failed:

  • Icing wouldn’t dry. I think the fail was that I used whipped icing. Four days later, the snowmen were STILL sticky and gooey. Each snowman was missing icing where it had been touched during the icing dip.
  • Forget about these things standing up, let alone staying together. My table looked like a recreation of the Battle of Antietam – only with fallen snowman soldiers.
  • donut hole snowmen

    Hmmmm….I am going to go ahead and guess that Parents magazine lied to you about what it takes to put one of those together…I would personally have used white chocolate and a tootpick so they’d stay together better. (I realize that is not the point of this blog, but sometimes I can’t help myself!)

    I would have skipped the icing and just used powdered sugar donut holes and assembled them with toothpicks and royal icinged on the accessories. Maybe a little dab of royal icing on the bottom to hold them up too.

    Then after the 3rd failed snowman I would simply eat all the evidence and serve a nice plate of the remaining powdered sugar donut holes along with fresh waffles and made the candies available later at snacktime.

    Improvisation is the key to success.
