The J.M. Smucker Company has compensated me to promote its Pillsbury® Funfetti® Lil’ Donut Kits products.
There are a lot of activities I like doing with my children but there’s one I absolutely love and that’s baking! Since they could stand on a stool, the kids have been helping me in the kitchen whether it’s stirring, cutting cookies or cracking eggs. I would venture to guess their very favorite kitchen duty is decorating sweets.
We recently had a chance to try a new baking kit from Pillsbury that not only extremely easy to use but loads of fun for little helpers. The Pillsbury Funfetti Lil’ Donut kits come with almost everything you need to make little donut holes. The best part … you don’t need any special baking pans.
The donut dough is very simple in that it only requires the packaged dry ingredients, butter and water. Kids can help stir too!
The fun part comes in when you shape the dough. Rather than using a special baking pan, you only need your hands to roll the dough into little balls and a greased baking sheet.
I was really surprised at how well the donuts hold their round shape.
The kit also includes the glaze mix and sprinkles for dipping and decorating the lil’ donuts.
With help from the little ones, we made a platter of chocolate and vanilla glazed donuts topped with colorful sprinkles.
The Pillsbury Lil’ Donuts are perfect for an outdoor picnic on a warm Sunday morning!
Fun Ways to Use Pillsbury Lil’ Donut Kits
- Birthday Parties – One kit makes 24 mini donut holes that are great for hungry children with a sweet tooth. You can even add food coloring to the vanilla donut dough to match the party theme.
- Holidays – Stuff the donuts with sweet surprises like a mint chocolate candy inside the chocolate donuts for a holiday treat. Top with red and green sprinkles for a festive holiday breakfast.
- Flavor Fun – The kits are available in chocolate, vanilla and maple, perfect for creating new breakfast flavors. You could top the maple glazed donuts with a little crumbled bacon for a wacky but delicious breakfast combo.
