Christmas Donut Tree
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: 20 servings 1x
Christmas Donut Tree Recipe will become a yearly tradition! All you need is a styrofoam cone, toothpicks, bakery donut holes, and garnishes of your choice.
- 80 donut holes, plain or powdered
- sugared cranberries
- Fresh rosemary springs
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 80–90 toothpicks
- aluminum foil
- buttercream frosting
Wrap the styrofoam cone in aluminum foil.
- Cover the aluminum foil with buttercream icing.
With the cone in an upright position, push in a toothpick in about half way in starting at the bottom of the cone.
Push a donut hole into the toothpick.
Push another toothpick close to, but not right next to, the donut hole. You want to allow space for the next donut hole.
Place another donut hole on the toothpick.
Continue working your way around and up the cone
Once you’ve covered the cone completely, cover any gaps with trimmed rosemary sprigs.
Embellish with sugared cranberries throughout and dust with powdered sugar.
