Easy-to-make acorn donut holes. These donut holes are made to look like acorns by dipping the top of the donut in melted chocolate and topping with a stick pretzel.
PREP: Pour any prepared toppings you're wanting to use (chocolate jimmies sprinkles, assorted leaf/Fall themed sprinkles, crushed pretzels, crushed nuts, Heath toffee bits, OR miniature chocolate chips) into small individual bowls. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside. Halve the stick pretzels by breaking in the middle.
CHOCOLATE/NUTELLA: In a small bowl, add coconut oil to melted chocolate and whisk to combine. Place Nutella in a bowl and warm through in the microwave for 20-40 seconds (check often and stir often).
ASSEMBLE: Hold the donut hole and dip the top 1/3 of the donut hole in the melted chocolate or nutella. Shake off any excess and then immediately dip into prepared toppings. Insert a broken pretzel stick into the center of the chocolate-dipped side of the donut hole.
DRY: Let donut holes sit for about 10-20 minutes (on the prepared baking sheet) to fully set up and harden.
Note 1: I use milk chocolate chips; semi-sweet or dark chocolate also works -- just whatever you prefer!
