How to Make Christmas Donuts (with sprinkles!)
Do you have a special Christmas treat that you make on the morning of December 25th? Or, do you need a simple treat to share at an office holiday party? These sprinkled Christmas donuts are easy to make and share, and they are certainly festive!
These donuts are actually made with cake mix and include fun sprinkles! You can find this Wilton donut pan here on Amazon too.
Besides a box of white cake mix, holiday sprinkles are a necessity! A large gallon freezer bag and kitchen scissors will make prep a breeze.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. Combine the cake mix with water, oil, and egg according to package instructions. Don’t forget to add the sprinkles! This is when the freezer bag is important. Scoop the batter into the gallon freezer bag. Seal the bag and snip one corner with the kitchen scissors. Gently squeeze the batter into the donut wells, filling each about 3/4 full.
Once they have cooled, heat the frosting in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. You want it soft but not completely melted. Generously frost each donut and then decorate with sprinkles.
You can make approximately 18-24 donuts with this recipe.
