Donut Hole Breakfast Skewers



                           When life gets busy and you don't have a lot of time to put out all the -
                 stops. That's when simplicity comes in and you have to get creative. I have been
                 making these for years. How perfect would these be for your house guests in the
                    morning? Or this would be a special treat for your children. I can imagine
                        their eyes all big with huge smiles...when they see donut holes on a
                              stick with fresh fruit and dips to go along. Make someones day!!
                                                               Perfect for a brunch.

                                                   Donut Hole Breakfast Skewers
 
                    Donut holes ( I used entenmanns )
                    strawberries
                    blackberries
                    skewers
                    salted caramel sauce ( Trader Joes )
                    chocolate sauce
                    coconut

  3. I used to eat donut holes at will when I was in junior high! I still love them. But in moderation because my girlish figure would not be so girlish :)

  57. The kids at my after-school tutoring program absolutely loved these at our end-of-year party, despite their initial apprehension about the blackberries. We dipped them in a chocolate caramel dip. Though they did ask why I always have to put fruits & veggies in everything.... :) Thank you for the great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  58. this is such a great idea, i had to include it on my home entertaining blog. Love a great simple idea that anyone can do to make gathering pretty and yummy at the same time. LOVE!!!
