  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.
