Scrumptious chocolate brownie doughnuts with chocolate chips, topped with inexperienced buttercream frosting and sprinkle baubles = christmas wreath bronuts! 

Say hiya to the cutest little edible Christmas wreaths you fill discover this festive season! They’re candy, tremendous chocolatey, and sure, they’re brownie doughnuts. HELLO!!


So everyone knows and love my brownie recipe by now proper?! It’s an enduring magnificence that’s simply completely delicious. Truthfully, the reasoning for maintaining one thing just about the identical all through recipe growth over time is as a result of it really works, so I don’t need to mess with it. 

As at all times… darkish chocolate (70%+ cocoa content material), butter, eggs, sugar, flour and cocoa powder. You soften the darkish chocolate and butter collectively and let this cool. In a brand new bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar to a mousse like texture. Fold the chocolate combine via the eggs, then fold via the flour and cocoa. 

I added some chocolate chips, as I simply can’t resist, however you don’t must – I additionally wouldn’t add any greater than I’ve as you want the steadiness inside the brownie to make the doughnut form. 


Brownie + doughnuts = bronuts. It truly is that straightforward. Bronuts are a brownie, in doughnut form and type and that’s just about all there may be to it! I like these, and so so so lots of you do as nicely. 

Once I posted my bronut recipe it went CRAZY! Truthfully, I don’t assume I can comprehend how mad all of it went. I knew they might be in style, however truthfully for some time in my Fb group its all you may see haha! 

I do know it could appear to be a foolish idea to some, however I am keen on the concepts of bronuts – and I’m right here for the festive model much more so. 

Doughnut moulds

In terms of the doughnut moulds… they do fluctuate. Silicone doughnut moulds are low-cost to purchase, however not essentially the most constant of issues. I’ll at all times attempt to present the precise ones I used so you possibly can see the product particulars, and these are the moulds I used

I’d say that they’re an everyday sized doughnut, perhaps 7 cm or so – so something near that works. The rationale I want the silicone is that they’re far simpler to get out the opposite finish and I’m okay with that.

And sure, in the event you hadn’t realised, these are baked ‘doughnuts’ which is why we’d like the mould. The steadiness of the brownie would by no means maintain as much as the rest. 


I place my doughnut moulds onto massive trays earlier than I do something, as shifting silicone, particularly as soon as full, is difficult. I prep my moulds by spraying them with a 1cal cooking spray, after which I pipe the brownie combine immediately into them. I discover utilizing a big piping bag with the tip snipped off best because it means I’ve much less mess. 

As brownies don’t rise a lot, I fill them to the road, after which bake. I additionally discover it greatest to chill the bronuts absolutely earlier than eradicating them – even placing them within the fridge can assist this be simpler. As soon as mine are baked I take away the silicone trays rigorously from a sizzling tray, and put them onto a wire rack – after which within the fridge! 


I went for buttercream for the ornament, because it appeared the simplest. I’ve comparable designs of inexperienced on different festive bakes equivalent to my big Christmas Cookie, and even my christmas tree cupcakes – however I am keen on it. 

I used a 2nd closed star piping tip to pipe little stars onto the bronuts in circles to mainly make the wreath ornament, and it’s so easy but it surely labored so extremely nicely! 

I then used some cute festive sprinkles as my baubles. You need to use any sprinkles you need, and even make a little bit bow, however simply something that appears festive works nicely! 

Suggestions & Tips 

Be sure that to chill your bronuts absolutely eradicating from the moulds. This recipe makes 15 bronuts and normally packs of moulds comprise 12 doughnut holes so you possibly can go away the leftover brownie combine till you should utilize the mould once more in a bowl, or nonetheless within the piping bag.
