Tiny Snack Time: Donuts!

Hey pals, I really love tiny things, and I really love eating snacks. So today I am going to share with you a delicious, tiny snack that’s very easy to make, and so, so cute: tiny donuts!


  • O-shaped cereal (like Cheerios or Froot Loops)
  • ½ cup Icing sugar
  • 1 tsp butter or margarine
  • ½ to 1 tsp of milk or water
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Food colouring (optional)
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, mash up the butter and the icing sugar with a spoon (it’ll be quite crumbly)
  2. Add the vanilla, food colouring, and milk. Start with less milk so it doesn’t get too runny, and add more, little by little, until you get the right consistency.
  3. Dip your cereal pieces in one by one, then dip them in sprinkles to decorate. Tada! Tiny donuts!

*NOTE: You can use any shape of cereal you like, and if you don’t want to make the icing you can use, peanut butter, chocolate spread, or even store-bought icing.

If you have tiny plates from a doll house, you can get really fancy! I once had a tiny tea party with some friends. We had juice in our tiny tea cups, and we even made tiny pizzas! But that’s a recipe for another day.
