Four Design Ideas for Your Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kits

Here at Dunkin’, we know Halloween may look a little different this year, but we’re helping our guests keep the Halloween spirit alive. Dunkin’ now has Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kits for kids, and the kids at heart, to turn their favorite treats into spooky creations.

This special treat offers a fun activity the whole family can enjoy from the comfort of home. Each Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kit features plain yeast or Old Fashioned cake donuts, with pre-packaged icing in orange, white, and chocolate varieties, and three sprinkle blends. The Halloween DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kits are available for purchase in two sizes, small (4-count donuts) and large (9-count donuts).

We asked one of our very own donut experts and mom, Kelly Therrien, Senior R&D Technologist here at Dunkin’, for decorating inspiration. We then tasked two of our favorite unicorns and superheroes to help test out the Halloween kits, ensuring these designs are kid-approved! To be fair, these kids are DIY Dunkin’ Donut Decorating Kit experts, given their father, Dunkin’ franchisee, Matt Cobo, came up with the idea earlier this year.
