Grow Your Own Magic Doughnuts - Donuts

Recipe by GeeWhiz
READY IN: 5mins
YIELD: 1 dozen


  • 12
    pieces Fruit Loops cereal or 12 pieces other cold cereal
  • 1
    tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon milk
  • candy sprinkles (optional)
  • 12
    fresh doughnuts


  • Before bed, have the kids place the cereal on a cookie sheet or tray; then sprinkle with milk or water.
  • Place the tray in a cold oven overnight; tell the kids that if they stay in bed and sleep well then the cereal will magically grow into donuts by morning ;) .
  • Very early the next morning drive to the bakery and buy a dozen freshly baked donuts; this is the price you pay for having kids that stayed in bed all night.
  • Replace the cold cereal with the donuts and carefully destroy and hide the box or bag!
  • Wait for your little darlings to wake up and discover the magic donuts in the oven.
  • By the way, chocolate milk or sprinkles makes chocolate iced donuts; water makes glazed; regular milk makes cream filled; and colored sprinkles makes - colored sprinkle covered donuts!
