Rudolph the Reindeer looks pretty cute in doughnut form! With mini cinnamon doughnuts as the main ingredient, I promise this idea is easy to make and easy to eat!
As a treat to leave for Santa or for a treat for the little ones before Santa arrives, these little doughnuts will be devoured as quickly as they are made. The Rudolph donuts would also be a sweet treat for a Christmas breakfast or brunch. If your school allows sweets to be brought to class, these doughnuts also make a fantastic idea for class parties. They are easy enough to make for a crowd- or they can be one of the activities that the children do at the party.
To assemble the adorable Rudolph doughnuts, you will need
mini cinnamon doughnuts (I used Entemann's above and Tasty Kake below)
mini candy canes
small red candy or round sprinkles
spreader or toothpick or skewer
Stack 2 doughnuts on top of each other.
Insert 2 mini candy canes in the hole of the doughnut.
Put a dab of frosting on candy eyes with toothpick and stick eyes to the doughnut.
Add a red nose using the frosting to keep the nose in place.
Hold by the bottom donut - serve, and enjoy!
You can also make Rudolph doughnuts with one donut at a time. You will want to break the straight end of the candy cane a little bit to shorten the candy so that it will fit in the middle of the doughnut better.
You can also use a stack of 3 doughnuts! See below for a taller Rudoloph~
Any way that you serve them, you are sure to get smiles and laughter! Kids love these (and so do adults)! I would love to see them if you make them! Tag me on Instagram so that I can find the photos and enjoy those cute Rudolph doughnuts this Christmas!
