Donut Snowmen



A fond and snowy welcome to my Red Couch.  Come in from the cold where it is nice and toasty on my Red Couch.



I have seen these cute little donut snowmen around and thought I would try my hand at them.  I think the original inspiration came from Matthew Meade.  They are so cute and fun to make.  I am making these and some other donut snowmen with my Activity Day girls (church) tomorrow. 



Ingredients:

Miniature Powdered Sugar Donuts
Brown Jimmies
Orange Slices
Black Confetti Sprinkles  -- mine are from a Halloween Mix
Light Corn Syrup

Break off a small piece of an orange slice and form into nose.  Dab nose with a bit of corn syrup and insert in donut hole.  Insert brown jimmies in donut for mouth.  Attach black confetti sprinkles by dabbing the back of confetti with a bit of corn syrup.  If you don't have confetti, you could use miniature chocolate chips, food clay, fondant or icing or jel.

I think my girls will love making and eating these snowmen. 

Thanks for dropping by me Red Couch where you are always welcome!
