Snack Time: Mini Donut Bar

We thought it would be fun to make donuts with the kids while they were here, so we set up a mini donut bar so they could decorate them however they wanted.  We had vanilla and chocolate glazes, three different kinds of colored sprinkles, almond slivers and white chocolate chips to choose from.  It was a total sugar explosion.  Next time I think I would include some dried fruit as a healthier alternative (apricots with the white glaze would be really pretty) and maybe even a yogurt-based glaze.  They're pretty small donuts, though, and we only let them eat a couple.  It was so much fun to see their little artistic sides come out.  Luca went all in with the sprinkles for a multi-colored confection, while Charlotte was more of a purist, using only white glaze and white chocolate chips.  I love how they couldn't have been more different!  It ended up being pretty messy, but so much fun.
