Doughnuts or apple slices….our kids go for the doughnuts first every time. Ok, I go for the apple slices every time too. I don’t know what it is, but there is just something about a yeast doughnut, dipped in chocolate frosting with sprinkles on it. I just can’t resist!
The other day, I was trying to think up a funny prank to pull on the kids. (Because I’m evil.) They had been complaining about our lack of doughnuts lately. So I decided to make some ‘doughnuts’.
Why I love these apple slice doughnuts:
- They were easy.
- They were fast.
- They were really yummy.
- They totally worked! The kids really thought they were doughnuts!
So whether you want to make these fun treats as a trick (they would be perfect for April Fool’s Day!) or for a fun treat…I highly recommend them!
A few quick things before I show you the how to.
This apple corer would have been useful and made them look a lot nicer. I bought one for next time, plus, just to use when we are doing apples. (I’m totally thinking of filling an apple with caramel. Just saying…)
These can be made in advance. Just put them on a baking sheet and keep them in the refrigerator. What a fun healthy treat for a party!
Here is what you will need to make apple slice doughnuts:
- Whipped Cream Cheese
- Food Coloring
Here is how you make the apple slice doughnuts:
Wash and slice the apples. Keep the skin on the apples.
If you have an apple corer, core the apples. If not, you can use a knife.
Add a bit of whipped cream cheese to a small bowl. Tint the cream cheese whatever color you want your frosting colors to be. It is super important to use the whipped cream cheese to get the frosting texture.
For a chocolate doughnut, use Nutella.
Spread the cream cheese (or Nutella) on the apple slice. Shake a few sprinkles on top.
Ta da! Doughnuts! Aren’t they fun?
