Here are some adorable fairy toadstool donuts that are perfect for a woodland fairy party. The tiny treats that looks like mushrooms are also a good fit for a gamer party.

These easy desserts are fun to decorate and a great way to get creative. You can even have a little decorating station so everyone can make their own toadstool creations.

Tasty Toadstools in 20 Minutes

This adorable recipe is super easy and can be ready in just 20 minutes! These whimsical little treats are sure to put a smile on even the grouchiest face.

Whip them up for themed parties, showers, sleepover extravaganzas, or just as a surprise after school snack. Pair them with our magical toadstool cupcakes! You can also add them to this edible terrarium.

You’ll want to serve them immediately because the donuts dry out relatively quickly. However, you could coat them in frosting to lock in the moisture.

That step will add to your prep time and increase the sugar and calorie content but could be worth it depending on your needs.

  • 24 Tootsie Rolls
  • Red Wilton Sparkle Gel

  2. Unwrap, but do not remove, Tootsie Rolls.
  3. Place 3 at a time in the microwave and microwave for 5 seconds.
  4. Discard wrappers and shape Tootsie Rolls into a mushroom stem.
  5. Set on a flat surface to harden.
  6. Gently press donut hole halves into each stem.
  7. Decorate with color gels. TIP: The trick is to use a little color gel, not a lot, otherwise it will run down the donut.

  2. Add 1 teaspoon of water to a small bowl. Add 4 drops green food coloring and mix well.
  3. Add to coconut.
