Rice Krispie Donuts

Raven Higheagle


Did you know that today (Friday June 6th) is National Donut Day?
Oh joy, oh boy…I love donuts!! So of course I am going to celebrate in a big way! But, not with a donut recipe. But, these adorable Rice Krispie donuts can substitute for the traditional version. Or stand on their own sprinkled feet. They are just that adorable.
See how I shaped them like donuts and then called them “Rice Krispie Donuts” so that they can count? Sneaky. These Rice Krispie Donuts are fast and easy. And they’re a terrific idea for a party!! Especially one that will also have ice cream or glitter or little girls.

How to Make Rice Krispie Donuts

  5. For the Icing:
    Beat all ingredients together.
