  • 80-90 Donut Holes Powdered Sugar or Sour Cream
  • Fresh Rosemary Sprigs
  • 1/4 Cup Pomegranate Arils
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 90 Toothpicks
  • 12 inch Styrofoam Cone
  • Plastic Wrap


  • Wrap the styrofoam cone ins two layers of plastic wrap.
  • With the cone in an upright position, push in a toothpick in about half way in starting at the bottom of the cone.
  • Gently push a donut hole into the toothpick.
  • Be sure to make the donut hole lines up to the bottom of the cone.
  • Push another toothpick close to, but not right next to the donut hole. You want to allow space for the next donut hole.
  • Place another donut hole on the toothpick.
  • Work your way around the base going in a straight line meeting up with the first donut hole.
  • For the next rows, be sure to tuck the donut holes in between to help fill in the gaps.
  • Once you've covered the cone completely, trim short pieces of the rosemary springs.
  • Place the rosemary in spots where you may need to fill in the gaps.
  • Embellish with pomegranate arils throughout and dust with powdered sugar.
