I hope you all enjoyed that lovely ice cream recipe round-up on Monday. 🙂
Though I had a blast finding the best and most delectable options for you, it did make me sad that I do not own an ice cream maker. I had such a huge craving for sugary sweet frozen treats, and I had already decimated my entire carton of cookie dough ice cream.
….have I mentioned I don’t handle heat well?
But this week is finally cooling down and I can resume baking (hopefully) as soon as possible.
These adorable doughnuts that I am sharing today are from quite a while back. While working with Rutgers Future Scholars, I got to meet and work with a wonderful group of rising tenth graders from New Brunswick and Piscataway High.
We focused on Digital Media Composition (my favorite, of course!) and after seeing my blog and asking why they never got any goodies, I promised them that if they worked hard I would bring in a treat to end out their two-week program.
The way to a child’s heart is through her stomach! These doughnuts are tiny, and baked, so I have no qualms about providing a sugary sweet for a job well done.
It’s all about moderation, right?
Two weeks were done, and my students created blogs, posted regularly, recorded podcasts, and even videos! They learned to work together in a team and articulate their thoughts.
They even, can you believe it, had fun doing it!
So I whipped up these doughnuts, inspired and infused with Fruity Pebbles Cereal…
because how do you make doughnuts even more breakfast-inspired?
Cover them in sugary-sweet cereal!
I always found it odd how people could eat this, and many other sugary cereals, and somehow be prepared for a busy day.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for sweet treats (hello I run a blog all about them!) but not for breakfast.
For breakfast, I am somewhat weird and can only have savory dishes. I need protein and substantial carbs, usually in the form of a sausage, egg, and cheese atop an English muffin.
But, I do not deny the utter awesomeness that is cereal.
Cereal treats, cereal bars, cereal to munch on….and of course, cereal-covered doughnuts.
The kids got a kick out of these colorful doughnuts, and of course they also taste fabulous!
What’s the use of a cute doughnut if it doesn’t taste good?!
I can’t wait to try these with other cereals….cinnamon toast crunch, cocoa puffs, the possibilities are endless!
If you want a cute, colorful, fun, and simple treat for a child’s birthday party or any other form of festivities, try out these Fruity Pebble Frosted Doughnuts.
I’ll be back next week with more fun treats!
