If you ever crave something chocolate, something caramel, something tart and candy all in one bite, this is the dessert for you. It’s fast, easy to assemble, kid and grown-up friendly. Plus, it’s not too heavy, so it’s the perfect afterthought for a post-holiday meal.



  1. Place peppermints in zip lock bag, squeeze the air out of it as much as possible and seal it. Place a dishtowel over the bag and using a pan or other flat surface, loosely pound peppermints into small chunks.
  2. Spoon about a teaspoon of caramel sauce onto each plate.
  3. Position a doughnut hole or cut one doughnut three ways and place around center of plate atop caramel. Garnish each doughnut piece with more caramel and then place a dollop of cranberry sauce atop each one.
  4. Sprinkle smashed peppermint pieces around plate and garnish with a whole peppermint for each doughnut piece.
