Wake up this Holiday season with these delicious Cranberry Bliss Donuts. Fresh cranberries and white chocolate are combined into the batter and baked until golden and tossed in sugar.
You guys…it’s December already. How is this possible?!? It feels like yesterday was just Halloween, no joke. I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun does it not? At least that’s what I’ve heard.
Speaking of fun! Besides these seriously DELICIOUS donuts, and that term is not used lovely here I have some more fun to share with you! How about a giveaway?!?! What perfect timing , just in time for Christmas. Who doesn’t love free stuff this time of year?

OK how about we talk about these delicious Cranberry Bliss Donuts shall we?! I’ve always been a huge donut lover you can check out some of my previous flavors here ——> S’mores, Banana Caramel Macchiato, Strawberry Lime….the list goes on.
If you’ve ever been to Starbucks and tried their Cranberry Bliss Bars, these are based off of those flavors. I’ve never actually tried an original one, but I’ve made the copycat recipe and I was hooked!! And I figured what flavors would be more perfect for the holidays than cranberry and white chocolate?
And you wanna know what?! I got these cranberries for a STEAL!! Literally .98 cents for a whole bag! I was sooooo happy. I could be making donuts for ever with that price. But in reality I used some of these cranberries to go in these delicious Cranberry Orange Mojitos, another fun festive idea for this holiday season!
Ok, I have to admit….usually I like my donuts glazed, frosted or something. But when I decided that I wanted to just sugar these puppies, I think it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s kinda of like one giant sugared cranberry so to speak. Except that cranberry is baking into a donut along with white chocolate chips. Hella good my friends.
So if you want a fun, seasonal, quick and addicting breakfast or dessert this time of year I highly recommend that you give these Cranberry Bliss Donuts a try, you wont be sorry…I promise!
