The deal includes Krispy Kreme’s new ‘Elf’-inspired doughnut collection and return of the Santa Belly Doughnut, which has Cookies & Kreme filling and is decorated to resemble Santa’s belt and belt buckle.

The “Elf” collection includes three Original Glazed doughnuts all decorated to capture the magic of the film, which celebrates the movie’s 20th anniversary this year.

The first doughnut in the collection is the Buddy Snow Globe Doughnut, which is dipped in sugar cookie-flavored light blue icing and coated in white sprinkles. It is also topped with “powdered sugary snow” and a chocolate “Elf” piece.

Next up, the Buddy Makes Breakfast Doughnut is a nod to Buddy’s famous spaghetti dish and is topped with cake batter buttercreme that looks like spaghetti, milk chocolate candies, sprinkles and a maple drizzle. The Christmas Lights Doughnut is dipped in chocolate icing, drizzled with green icing and coated in strings of rainbow sprinkles and a chocolate “Elf” piece.
