Snowman Donuts: An Easy Christmas Morning Breakfast

I always hated the stomach grumble in my tummy after opening gifts on Christmas.  I always wondered why we didn’t eat breakfast first.  As I grew older, we started to make family breakfast first and then opening gifts.  It made gift opening so much more enjoyable, and I loved that I could begin to use my gifts rather than having to wait for breakfast.

These cute snowman donuts are an easy christmas breakfast. Made with powdered donuts, icing, and candy corn.

When we were married, I told my husband that I wanted this to be the rule in our house as well.  But we quickly realized that That would not work with young kids.  They hated waiting for the presents, and breakfast was always a whiny time we all hated.

I realized that I had to change my idea of breakfast and either make something handheld that I could eat while opening gifts or create something using prebought items like donuts.
