Something Squirrely

Before I get around to showing you any photos, I must warn you that this post includes a recipe that I am not entirely proud of. It has zero nutritional value but cleverly disguises itself as one of natures treasures. That's getting it all backwards, if you ask me. But it's all done in the name of celebration, and, well, because my preschooler insisted that her birthday theme be squirrels. Sweet. So here goes, a preview of my weekend to come. First up, preschool treats:

Donut Hole Acorns

1 package of donut holes
1 jar Nutella
Chocolate Flavored Sprinkles (I'm telling you, people, not proud.)
Thin pretzel sticks

1. Spread nutella on top third of donut hole. (Being round, its up to you to decide which end is up.)
2. Roll in sprinkles.
3. Break pretzel stick in half and stick that puppy down the center of the nutella.

Serve with loads of milk and a napkin. Enjoy
