❗ FAQs

How Do You Store Donuts?

These leftover Christmas donuts are best if they are cooled and kept airtight. They will last 1-2 days at room temperature. You can also freeze them by flash freezing on a baking sheet. Then put them in a container or bag. Flash freezing prevents them from sticking to each other.

Can I Make Them For Other Occasions Besides Christmas?

Certainly! You can adjust the decorations on top to fit whatever you are celebrating. Go wild and make a variety whenever you get a craving.
