Hello everyone! My name is Jen and I blog over on a little corner of the web at a spot called PinkWhen. I am so excited that Leigh Anne invited me over to share with you a delicious holiday dessert. Today I am going to share with you a very Merry Christmas Donut Tree Dessert. (I will warn you ahead of time…if the kids help, you may not end up with a full tree!) This is a fun dessert to serve at a holiday table or a work party. It’s easy and delicious, and it’s super fun to make. Let’s get started!
To get started, you will want to have a few things on hand:
- favorite chocolate cake mix
- green and yellow chocolate dipping chocolates
- festive sprinkles
- donut maker
Once you have your cake mix ready and your donut maker heated, start filling the machine with batter. You can either measure out 2 Tablespoon of batter for each donut, or you can use a nifty pancake batter dispenser. It works like a charm and is less mess.

After the machine is filled, close the lid and allow them to bake for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the donuts and place them on a wire rack to cool.
Melt the dipping chocolate and start dipping the donuts to make the tree. I did a few yellow for the top, and the rest were dipped green. Add the sprinkles to the covered donuts, and allow to fully cool.
Arrange the completed donuts on a serving tray and watch as they quickly disappear. I even added a few decorations and bells to make the dish a little more festive and inviting.
This is a fun and easy Christmas dessert, and one that everyone will enjoy.
