Reindeer doughnut bites recipe

Yields 12 doughnuts


  • 12 mini-chocolate covered doughnuts
  • 12 red M&M’s
  • 12 pretzels (mini-pretzel shape or square grid shape)
  • 24 large round decorating pearls (we used upside down heart sprinkles)


  1. Lay out all 12 doughnuts and press one M&M’s into the middle of each doughnut.
  2. Break up pretzels in large shapes to create the “antlers.” Press them into the top of doughnut.
  3. Take round sprinkles and push them into the doughnut, creating the eyes.
  4. No need to let them rest. They are ready to eat right away!
