What little one wouldn’t get a giggle at these Leprechaun Doughnuts for St. Patrick’s Day? Simple and fun, just use O-shaped cereal, chocolate, and some colored sprinkles to create the tiny doughnuts. Prepare each variety following the steps below and let dry on waxed paper. Add to the fun by placing them in a miniature box (get the free template at familyfunmag.com/printables). Thanks Family Fun magazine for this adorable (and easy!) idea.
