Donut Acorns

These are so cute and yummy- and kids love to make them too!

Donut Holes
Chopped Nuts
Peanut Butter
Pretzel Sticks- broken in half

Take a donut hole, dip 1/2 of it in peanut butter (or spread the peanut butter on half of the donut), dip the peanut buttered end in chopped nuts and put a pretzel stick in the top!

So easy...
