Doughnut Hole Cake Pops

 

Living in the Northeast, I like to take advantage of the warm weather and spend as much of the summer as I can outdoors. This means I’m always looking for ways to lessen my time in the kitchen. I was so excited when I discovered these doughnut hole cake pops from Better Homes and Gardens. After making my individual dessert trifles a few weeks ago, I didn’t think dessert could get any easier. I was wrong.

First things first, BHG has a half-dozen ideas for these doughnut hole pops. You can find all of the recipes here. Today, I decided to try the Honeybee Doughnut Pops and the Candy Bar Doughnut Pops. To get things started, you’re going to need some plain cake doughnut holes. Once you have those, it’s time to have fun in the kitchen.

The frosting for the Honeybee Doughnut Pops is really quick to mix up. It’s softened butter, powdered sugar, honey, and a little milk. That’s it.

Once it’s whipped up, just spoon it on top of your doughnut holes and add a wooden stick and an adorable candy bee! I found both of these items at a local superstore.

Once those were complete, I tried the Candy Bar Doughnut Holes. To make these, just dip each doughnut hole into some warmed-up, store-bought frosting. Then just add a little piece of candy, sprinkles, peanuts, or shredded coconut. The options are endless.

I told you this was simple! In less than 15 minutes, I created two desserts that are not only delicious, but so adorable.

Aren’t those little bees the perfect finishing touch?

Again, you can find the recipes for these doughnut hole pops here. What fun combinations are you going to try?

Hope you’re having a fabulous summer!

  1. So Cute! Any ideas on how I can use these for a boy’s baby shower? I’m loving that I can buy donut holes and dress them up. Right up my alley.

  2. For a Baby Boy Shower, I’d add blue tint to the white honey frosting, and then instead of the bee, you can use pacifier shaped “sweet tart” candies!

  3. Way cute, Michael. I love these so much!!

  4. What store did you find the honeybee sugar candy?
    Thanks!

  5. I am planning a bumble bee themed birthday party for my daughter in 2 weeks and your honeybee doughnut pops are so cute I have to make them – especially since they are so easy! But, like Laura, I am wondering at what “superstore” you purchsed the bees because I have not had any luck finding anything of the sort. Thanks!

  6. Ahhh, the adorable bees!

  7. Bronwyn, I did my own sleuthing and found that Wilton makes the bee decorations. I found them online at JoAnn’s Fabrics http://www.joann.com/icing-decorations-18-pkg-bumble-bee/zprd_12375614a/
    I bet Michael’s Crafts, who also sells Wilton, might have them as well. I hope this helps! :)

  8. Thanks for the detective work! And incase this helps anyone else, I did find those adorable little bees at my local Super Walmart. I was looking in the birthday section with the candles and cake decorating supplies, but they had them stocked in the wedding section! I just happened to be taking a shortcut through there and there there were! Hope this helps someone else!
