Sunday Funday = Christmas Eve Elf Timbits!

A few weeks ago, I saw this photo of teeny tiny doughnuts circulating the interwebs...

Maybe you saw it as well?  I found the source via Pinterest!  I adore this idea!  So, so clever! 

We always leave out cookies and eggnog for Santa...and a carrot for Rudolph...but what about those hard working elves, left exhausted back at the North Pole??!!

This is an absolutely perfect Sunday Funday project fit for Christmas!  To give this project a little Canadiana twist, we made ours into Christmas Elf Timbits!

You will need:

Card stock, or a heavier paper to print out this template:
Template for Mini Timbits Box

Spherical Cereal (Corn Pops, Gorilla Munch, etc)
Milk (a Tablespoon or two)
Icing sugar, plus extra for rolling (approx 1/4-1/2)
Cocoa, or Hot Chocolate (approx 1/4 cup for rolling)

Have ready a cookie sheet or plate lined with parchment as your drying station.
First we combined roughly 1/4 cup of icing sugar, with just over a Tablespoon of milk, to create a really thin paste for the icing sugar and cocoa to adhere to.  Take some cereal, roll the cereal in icing mixture, and then roll in either the icing sugar, or the cocoa.  Leave some uncoated so they resemble the Honey-Dip, or Old Fashioned Plain!  Allow your Timbits to dry, before transferring to your to your handmade mini Timbits box!

Merry Christmas!
