Here are a few things you will need to make these easy cake mix donuts

- Pint size freezer baggies
- Wilton melts (for chocolate “icing”)
- Or melt chocolate chips with a little coconut oil (helps it to melt smooth)
- Variety of toppings (smashed Andes mints are amazing)
Cake mix donuts is a fun and easy baking project to do with kids because they bake quickly and they can help squeeze in the mixture as well as decorate them with you.
Then add candies when chocolate/frosting is still wet and warm so they stick well.
