Reindeer Doughnuts

Only 18 more days until Christmas! Does everyone have their tree up and decorated? We've had so much fun already and are in complete holiday mode! So far we've enjoyed playing in the snow, warming up with some hot chocolate, doing a little Christmas shopping, making smelly Christmas ornaments, and cuddling up for some great holiday movies. Over the next several days I am going to share some easy and adorable things you can make this holiday season. The first one up is Reindeer Doughnuts!

Is everyone familiar with Oriental Trading Company? You know, those fun catalogs with little gadgets, toys, and crafts of about anything you can dream of. I love sitting and browsing through those catalogs. I ordered some things from there for my son's Robot Birthday party last year. Well, did you know they also have recipes on their site? Who knew?!?! Not me, until I spotted these adorable Reindeer Doughnuts.

Chocolate Frosted Mini Donuts
Peanut M&M’s®
Round Pearl Sprinkles
Mini Pretzel Twists

Press a red peanut M&M® into the hole of the chocolate frosted mini donut.
Press two round pearl sprinkles into the chocolate frosted mini donut for the eyes.
Break a mini pretzel twist in half and press them into the top of the donut for antlers.


  1. These are SO cute. I plan on doing them at my daughter's christmas party at school. Did you know there is a snowman one too? You use powdered donuts, mini chocolate chips for the eyes, reese's pieces for the nose (the orange ones, or you could use candy corn) and then either do a tiny bit of a fruit roll up for the mouth or more mini chocolate chips.

  2. Check back tomorrow for my snowman doughnuts! They are as cute as the reindeers! :)
