Reindeer Donuts are an easy and quick way to make breakfast a festive treat. This is an easy way to take a storebought donut and transform it into a holiday breakfast that will leave kids giggling and enjoying a sweet start to the day.
Who doesn’t love a donut? Whether you head to Krispy Kremes or your local supermarket you can grab donuts to decorate like Santa’s helper reindeer.
What Do You Need to Make Reindeer Donuts
How To Make These Donuts
Take your chocolate donuts and lay them out. Break your pretzels in half and then use them to stick on the top of each side of the donut to mimic the antlers.
Then you will add your googly eyes and nose that is the M&M’s. If the glaze on the donuts are not sticky enough you can melt some chocolate to use it as the glue for these donut reindeer.
Can I Use Mini Donuts For This Recipe
Go right ahead and use mini donuts if you would like. You will just need to reach for mini eyes, and then make your antlers a bit smaller in size.
Does This Recipe Work with Homemade Donuts
Of course! If you are a fan of homemade donuts go right ahead and make your own donuts. You can dip in chocolate or any other type of frosting or icing. Even a maple glazed donut could work as well since it is brown in color.
Just remember a bright-colored donut might make the reindeer look a bit different.
Craving Even More Christmas Ideas
Feel free to make these donuts in advance if you need them. I would only do a day in advance as you don’t want the donuts to dry out. Just place them in an alright container in a single layer. Otherwise, you will find they stick together.
