Mini Cheerio Donut Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1.5 cup Cheerios
  • 1¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • cinnamon, ground
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • food coloring
  • sprinkles
  • 2.5 tsp water
  1. In one Ziploc bag combine ¼ cup powdered sugar & ½ cup Cheerios. Shake until all Cheerios are covered in sugar. Use toothpick to poke hole through center of Cheerio if filled with sugar.
  2. In measuring cup, pour ¼ granulated sugar. Cover the top of the sugar with cinnamon until the entire top is coated. Stir together. Pour into Ziploc bag along with ½ cup Cheerios. Add in 2.5 tsp of water. Shake until all Cheerios are covered.
  3. In mixing bowl, combine 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 drop food coloring, 3 tbsp lemon juice. Mix until combined. Dip one half of Cheerio into icing. Remove & top immediately with sprinkles. Set aside on parchment paper, sprinkle side up, until frosting hardens. (this will make quite a bit of icing but you can use the extra to either decorate larger donuts or make tons & tons of mini Cheerio ones!)
