It’s Valentine’s Day, which means everyone will be buying and giving flowers and sweet treats for that special someone. How boring! 

We at JOY Cone have an idea that not only combines those two traditional Valentine’s Day gift ideas, but our Joy Donut Bouquets are memorably different and — most importantly — they’re made by YOU! 

Of course, Joy Donut Bouquets are easy enough that even the youngest members of the family can take part in creating a stunning and delicious Valentine’s Day gift that’s tastier than flowers and more attractive than candy. You might say that Joy Donut Bouquets are the most perfect Valentine’s Day gift ever!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 box of JOY Classic Waffle Cones
  • 1-2 packages of donut holes
  • 1 package white, pink, red or chocolate candy melts 
  • Assorted Valentine’s Day sprinkles
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Decorative paper gift wrap and crinkle paper
  • Ribbon
  • Parchment paper

What to do:

STEP 1: Dip the donut holes in chocolate:  Lay out parchment paper. Place your sprinkles and half of the package of donuts in separate bowls. Set aside another bowl of plain donut holes for assembling later. Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the candy melts according to the directions on the package. Using a dipping tool, fork or toothpick, dip the donut holes in the chocolate, covering completely or partially.

STEP 2: Decorate the donut holes with sprinkles: Next, dip the chocolate-covered donut hole in the bowl of sprinkles and set the donut on the parchment paper to dry. 

STEP 3: Assemble the lollipop sticks: Once the chocolate covered sprinkled donut hole is completely dry and the coating is firm, assemble the individual donut holes on your lollipop stick by mixing plain and decorated donut holes (about 3 per stick) on each stick.  

STEP 4: Make your waffle cone bouquet: Take your waffle cone and place decorative shredded paper in the bottom. Then, place your donut hole sticks in the cone and wrap your assembled cone with festive tissue gift wrap and tie with a ribbon. Now you are ready to Give Joy this Valentine’s Day
