I’m so excited about this recipe because it’s made with two of my favorite ingredients, pumpkin and M&M’s®. Plus, these M&M’s are a fancy, limited edition flavor called Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s. Yum!

Fall is officially just 2 days away, so let the pumpkin baking season begin!


Pumpkin Spice Latte Donuts are not only delicious, but super simple to make. Just 5 ingredients: Pillsbury® Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix, canned pumpkin, 1 egg, Pillsbury® Cream Cheese Frosting and Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s. Easy recipes are the best!


Can you tell I’m excited about these M&M’s! I love how Target always has all of the special, limited edition flavored foods around the holidays. So much fun and tasty too! And Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’S® are only available at Target.


Plus, both the Pillsbury Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix and the Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s have a Cartwheel savings!  BONUS!


To make the donuts, start by putting the cake mix, pumpkin and egg in a large bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on low until combined, then beat on medium for 2 minutes.


Pour batter into a large pastry bag. Cut the tip and pipe batter into greased donut pans. Bake at 350°F. for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.


Meanwhile, make the glaze. Stir 1 cup of frosting and 2 tablespoons of water together until smooth. Dip each donut in glaze.


Then place on a cooling rack to set.


Decorate with Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s.


These donuts are so, so good. They’re moist, tender and pumpkin spicy. The creamy glaze and crunch of the M&M’s are a perfect combo!

I hope you like this recipe as much as I do. Enjoy and Happy Fall Y’all!
