Mini Donut Wreaths for Christmas Breakfast

Mini Donut Wreaths - these are SO cute for Christmas Breakfast!

Does your family do a big Christmas breakfast? Every year I make a big pan of Overnight French Toast Casserole, loads of bacon, OJ and a few other sweet treats. It is Christmas, after all ;) This year, I’ll be adding these cute little Mini Donut Wreaths to our spread to nibble on while the french toast bakes!

Mini Donut Wreaths are perfect for Christmas morning breakfast! Let the kiddos help with the piping and sprinkles!

They start with a bag of mini cruller donuts from the grocery store. I love the piped, ruffly shape. And that they are already baked. All the hard work has been done for me!

Just prep a baking sheet with parchment paper (to catch any extra sprinkles and make clean up a breeze) and lay out the mini donuts.

Mini Donut Wreaths start with mini cruller donuts - easy as can be!

Then, melt green candy melts according to package directions. (I used the same color for my Frankenstein Sugar Wafer cookies at Halloween. You could use a darker green if you prefer.) When the melted coating has cooled slightly, put it in a piping bag or zip top bag and snip the corner and pipe on the green ‘wreath’.

It doesn’t have to be perfect, so don’t worry if your piping skills (like mine), need a little work.

Then … add sprinkles! I used Christmas colored disc sprinkles, but you can use green sugar, nonpareils or whatever you have on hand.

So festive and sprinkly … like I said on Instagram recently, any day with sprinkles is a GOOD day!

Give me all the cute, sprinkled Mini Donut Wreaths! What a sweet treat for Christmas breakfast!

You can chow down after you add the sprinkles or let the candy melts ‘set up’ so the Mini Donut Wreaths can be handled, stacked up on a plate or even packaged up for a cute Christmas breakfast to-go! Wouldn’t this be sweet to leave in your mail box for your mail carrier?
