In preparation of our Halloween festivities I was on the hunt for an easy Halloween dessert when I came across these Easy Halloween Eyeball Donut Holes from ThisLilPiglet.net. What a GREAT idea, she uses donut holes (Timbits here in Canada) instead of having to make her own cake pops…brilliant I say!
Following her lead, I went out and grabbed a 40 pack of Timbits from Tim Hortons, some icing and candies to become the BEST Mom ever!
Timbit Spiders – Easy Halloween Dessert
- 40 donut holes, no glaze or powder from your favourite donut spot
- Food colouring of your choice
- Assorted candies of your choice (string liquorice for legs)
- Appetizer sticks (we used forks)
- Cupcake cups
- Coloured sugar
Put your icing into a bowl and drop in a few drops of food colouring and mix well until you reach your chosen colour. Place your Timbit onto the appetizer stick (or fork) and ice it all around. Pour some coloured sugar into a cupcake cup and the iced Timbit into it, coating it well.
Use the toothpicks to apply the spider’s legs, simply put one end of the toothpick into the liquorice and one end into the Timbit. Put on candy eyes/mouth and you are done!
