With autumn now here, I’m so excited to partner up with Pillsbury® for this sponsored post focusing on families celebrating the lil’ things in life.
Autumn is my favorite season of all, and it’s the time of year when I really find myself creating extra special memories with my family. Often times that includes a something special from the kitchen.
One look at Pillsbury’s Pinterest page and you’ll see just how creative they are in the kitchen! And I adore how easy they make it for parents (like me) to have fun in the kitchen with our kids.
I especially LOVE their Funfetti product line – and you’ll quickly see that Pillsbury put the FUN in Funfetti!
Have you seen the new Pillsbury Funfetti Lil’ Donut Kits? You should be able to find them easily at your local grocery stores.
Flavors include: Vanilla Glazed, Glazed Chocolate and Maple Glazed. With Autumn here, we wasted no time in filling up the house with the amazing scent of maple. Yes, it’s the perfect time of year for Maple Glazed Lil’ Donuts (of course, I’ll be making these year-round too).
There’s no need to go out and purchase a special donut pan or fryer just to create donuts. The Funfetti Lil’ Donut Kits have everything you need (except butter, water and milk). The box contains donut mix, glaze mix, and candy bits too. You will be baking these! So quick and easy.
Some of my favorite memories are of spending time baking in the kitchen with my mom. She would always let me lick the spoons or bowl! I’m working on making my own memories now with my daughter. She’s loves wearing her Grandma’s old aprons and helping Mommy.
This week we decided to it was time to do a little celebrating of our own……..and thanks to Pillsbury, we got right to work in the kitchen. We wanted to celebrate the end of strep throat. YAY! We needed to celebrate Daddy’s good report from the Dr! (He had emergency surgery this week) Double YAY! And well, we just needed to celebrate that we finally had nothing on the agenda. A night to ourselves. Mommy and Daughter time! Triple YAY!
Look at that smile! Oh, and she wants you to know that for the first time ever, Mommy allowed her to eat the dough. Don’t worry – no eggs! 🙂 The excitement shows.
The Maple Glazed Donuts are perfect for this time of year. And who needs a reason to eat one (or two)? How about “just because”? How about “because it’s autumn”? 🙂
HOLIDAYS: With the candy bits that are provided, these Maple Glazed Donuts make for a perfect fall/Halloween treat. Thinking ahead to Christmas, the Vanilla Glazed would be so festive. You can even pick out just the red/white/green candy bits and use the traditional colors. Oh, and I’m thinking the Glazed Chocolate for Valentine’s Day with the red/white candy bits. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. It’s exciting.
TIME SAVERS: As busy parents, we are often stretched for time when it comes to helping out with school events. Whether you are room mom for your child’s classroom or wanting to send something for a bake sale, these Funfetti Lil’ Donuts are ideal. Each package makes 24 donuts.
LINERS AND PICKS: Make the Lil’ Donuts even more festive by dressing them up with patterned liners and cupcake picks. I found the ones below at a local crafts store in a combined package, but many grocery stores sell fun liners in the baking section.
