Wee Little Leprechaun Donuts!


Are these wee little leprechaun donuts freakin’ adorable or what?? A few years ago, we made Leprechaun Traps with our kids as a school project – these would have been a darling addition to those. Or for St. Patrick’s Day, of course!

Here’s the recipe for how to make them, along with the printable template for the tiny little box.

Leprechaun Doughnuts


Chocolate Sprinkle Donuts:

  • O-shaped cereal
  • Dark or white chocolate
  • Colored sprinkles

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts:

  • O-shaped cereal
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon sugar


Chocolate sprinkle:

Dip the tops of O-shaped cereal into melted dark or white chocolate (the tines of a fork work well for this) and cover with sprinkles.

Cinnamon sugar:

Over medium-high heat, dissolve ½ cup sugar in ½ cup water. Let it cool. Dip the O’s, a few at a time, in the syrup, then toss them in a small bowl of cinnamon sugar.
