If you’re making treats for Valentine’s Day this year, here’s a way to include a feline theme. With some miniature chocolate donuts and a few other supplies, you can make little kitty cat donuts that you might find too cute to eat.

  1. Using the icing, attach the edible eye candies right above the hole in the donut. (You can leave the edible candy eyesΒ the way they are, or you can make the pupils larger using the edible marker.)
  2. Place a candy heart in the hole for the nose. Use the icing to make the mouth, and place a red heart sprinkle in the mouth to look like a little kitty tongue.
  3. Use a knife to cut the top sides of the donut, then press in two more candy hearts with the points facing out to make the ears.
  4. Use the icing to attach white jimmies to look like whiskers.
