"A" is for Acorn Treats

Acorn Treats from Family Fun Magazine

Can you tell we're on an alphabet kick? I'm starting a new category of "Alphabet Snacks" for you moms looking for a preschool snack or just a fun way to teach your kids letters. Letter theme days are a great way to have fun with your kids in the kitchen. A lot of these snacks are also great ways to garnish a buffet plate. Hopefully within the next month or so, we'll have a snack for every letter of the alphabet! Feel free to post your ideas, too!!


Plain or glazed doughnut holes
Chocolate frosting (or peanut butter)
Toffee bits (in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips)


Frost 1/3 of the doughnut hole with chocolate frosting or peanut butter. Roll in toffee bits. Add a small piece of pretzel for the stem.
