Sugared, glazed or topped with sprinkles, any day is a good day for a donut. The holidays, however, can be a time to get especially creative with the sweet treat. There are several fun ways to incorporate donuts into your holiday fun, whether you try out some new donut craft ideas or try your hand at decorating donuts with some holiday flair.
Complete with the trademark red nose, these reindeer donuts are easy for both kids and adults to make. First, start with chocolate glazed donuts from your favorite local donut shop. Pop a red, candy-coated chocolate in the middle for the nose and add two white chocolate chips for eyes. With two broken pretzel pieces for antlers, you’ll have one very sweet Rudolph!
Donut Hole Christmas Tree
Depending on the size of tree you’d like to make, you’ll need at least 24 donut holes. Use a Styrofoam cone as your base, covering it with donut holes attached with toothpicks. Drizzle your “tree” with red and green icing thinned with a splash of water, and add sprinkles for ornaments.
Snowmen Donut Faces
Powdered sugar donuts are the start of this easy donut decorating idea. Simply use chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth and a single, orange candy-coated chocolate for the “carrot nose.”
Holiday Donut Hole Wreath
Donut holes, a round plate, and green icing are all you need for the base of this donut craft. Arrange the glazed donut holes in a wreath shape and drizzle with a generous amount of green icing, thinned out with a bit of water. You can use red candies to construct a decorative bow or to imitate the holly berries that often brighten a holiday wreath.
Stacked Donut Hole Snowmen
Using three powdered sugar donut holes, construct a snowman with a toothpick as the center support. You can get creative with the icing for eyes, a nose and a mouth. If you’re really feeling ambitious, give your snowman a holiday sweater!
Peppermint Twist Donuts
Start with warm, vanilla-iced donuts from your favorite donut shop, rolling them in crushed candy canes. Your guests will think you spent hours making the holiday-inspired donut when it only took just a few minutes.
