I have an addiction to mint desserts! I’ve been making this easy No Bake Chocolate Mint Pie for years and finally had a chance to share it here on my website for you! With a tasty OREO cookie crust topped with whipped cream and cookies, this no bake chilled dessert is perfect for summer parties.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s day with this Chocolate Mint Pie or my favorite Shamrock Shake! I’m not joking when I say it’s addicting. This chocolate mint pie is supposed to serve eight people, but in reality… I could eat the whole thing. So does that mean it really serves one? ha!

What I love about this recipe is that I can use my Young Living Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil. If you don’t have it, use mint extract. Either way, your Chocolate Mint Pie is going to taste amazing!

Sherlock Gnomes Donuts

Cute no-bake Gnome Donuts to celebrate Sherlock Gnomes. The new fun, family friendly movie coming to theaters on March 23! Easy recipe idea for a woodland, fairy or gnome themed party.

Sherlock Gnomes Donuts and Juice

I’m a HUGE fan of garden gnomes and have just made the cutest Gnome Donuts to celebrate Sherlock Gnomes a fun, family friendly movie in theaters March 23. The trailer looks adorable and full of action, teamwork and adventure. What a perfect movie to see during spring break! I can’t wait to see this film since it inspired these fun, easy to make no-bake gnome donuts and juice! After sketching several ideas for gnome donuts, I feel like I know these movie characters inside and out. 

They’re on a mission to bring every gnome home. After a string of garden gnome disappearances in London, Gnomeo & Juliet look to legendary detective Sherlock Gnomes to solve the case of their missing friends and family.

Those tiny red gnomes in the movie poster are so cute! I couldn’t wait to turn them into donuts and especially excited to create an edible Juliet. She’s my favorite character for sure! I think they turned out ADORABLE. Wouldn’t these donuts be so cute for a woodland themed “Sherlock Gnomes” party?

I love creating fun food for parties! These small Sherlock Gnomes toys show you just how bite sized the donuts are, making them the perfect snack for kids. I added colorful drinks to the bottles to serve as their outfits, but you don’t have to serve these on small bottles. They would be just as fun all alone on a plate.

How to Make Sherlock Gnome Donuts

First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. Scroll down and print the recipe for a list of all ingredients you will need. I used Glazed Hostess Donettes for the donuts and Reese’s Puffs cereal for the noses and ears.

Gnome Hats

Cut paper into about 3”-4” squares and shape into a funnel with the bottom a little bit larger than the width of the donut. Secure with tape and trim to fit.

 

Juliet

To make Juliet, add chocolate frosting to a decorating bag with a petal decorating tip attached. Pipe on Juliet’s hair. Stick two mini chocolate chips into the donuts sideways as eyes. The curvy tip should look like eye lashes. Add a tiny dot of white icing to a candy lip and place on the donut.

Gnomeo

Squeeze some white icing into a small bowl and add a few drops of yellow. Mix well. With a knife, add yellow icing onto a donut for his hair. Attach a piece of cereal with icing as his nose. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing.

Sherlock Gnomes

Cut the edges off of a piece of cereal to make his nose. Attach with icing. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing. Add cereal ears and chocolate sideburns. For Sherlock’s hat, cut a curved portion out of the front of the hat and bend. Place on top of donuts.

Paddington bear donuts and milk are adorable no bake party treats! A simple DIY fun food recipe idea perfect for a Paddington birthday party or family movie night.

Paddington Bear Donuts and Milk

This post is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures

One of my favorite book characters is back on the big screen! PADDINGTON 2 will be in theaters January 12 so I made cute Paddington Bear Donuts and Milk to celebrate! I loved the first Paddington movie and can’t wait to watch PADDINGTON 2 with my family. I grew up reading Paddington and after taking my kids to London last summer, they are now big fans as well. They didn’t realize how popular Paddington was until seeing him everywhere around London and going to the train station that he was named after. From Peru to London, Paddington definitely makes the world a brighter place!

These adorable Paddington Bear Donuts are simple to make no bake treats! They look cute on the table whether you make a few for your kids or a dozen for a Paddington birthday party. I made cute Paddington Bear Cupcakes for the first movie, a recently had the idea for Paddington Bear Donuts, but wasn’t sure how I was going to make them. I thought about baking regular sized donuts from scratch, which you definitely could do if you had the time, but to make things fast and easy I used mini store bought donuts. The smaller donuts fit perfectly on top of my milk bottles and turned out so cute in the end. I was glad I went with mini donuts which are easy to find at any grocery store.

Paddington bear donuts and milk are adorable no bake party treats! A simple DIY fun food recipe idea perfect for a Paddington birthday party.

Making these cute bear donuts before going to see Paddington 2 would be so fun! I would have LOVED these treats for one of my birthday parties as a kid. My son’s birthday is this week. Even though he will be 15, I’m tempted to make these again for his party! ha! Tickets for PADDINGTON 2 are now available! Get them for the whole family today at paddington2tickets.com.

Paddington bear donuts and milk are adorable no bake party treats! A simple DIY fun food recipe idea inspired by PADDINGTON 2 in theaters January 12.

How to make Paddington Bear Donuts

What you’ll need:

Step 1

Add a handful of butterscotch chips into a frosting bag. Microwave in 30 second intervals at a time for about a minute or until chips have melted. Cut the tip of the frosting bag to make a small opening and pipe an oval for the bear nose on the side of a donut.

 

Step 2

Gently press a chocolate chip into the nose and press two mini chocolate chips into the donut for the eyes. If they don’t stick to the donut, use a little of the melted butterscotch chips as glue. Set aside to cool.

 

Step 3

Poke a straw through the donut, place into an empty milk jar so the donut rests on the lid.

 

Step 4

Download and print the Paddington Bear printable page. Cut out the hats and tags with scissors. Use tape to secure the hat to the straw.

Step 5

Add the twine and tag around the lid of the milk bottle. Once you have all of your Paddington Bear Donuts assembled, gently lift out the straw and pour milk into the jar. I like using chocolate milk because it look more like a bear. Any kind of milk will do! Now they are ready to serve. Aren’t these treats so adorable? I’m even more excited to see PADDINGTON 2 now!

  • Lemons for garnish
  • Trifle bowl

Serve it up in a large trifle serving bowl, which not only shows off the gorgeous layers, but will also feed a large crowd.

I love making individual serving trifles for parties with mason jars, stemless wine glasses, plastic cups or mini trifle bowls pictured here.

Easy lemon trifle recipe is a simple layered dessert.

I love making this recipe with raspberries and strawberries because the red fruit really pops along side of the yellow lemon filling. And of course they create the perfect amount of tartness with the sweet lemon filling!

Bake your own pound cake or buy one already made from your grocery store. I like to buy cake, because I usually need a homemade dessert last-minute. Use angel food cake for our lemon trifle if you want something lighter and low-carbs.
