  • Beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 min.; spoon into pastry bag fitted with medium writing tip. Press excess air from bag. Refrigerate bag 1 hour.
  • Insert tip of pastry bag into each donut hole, then squeeze small amount of pudding into hole.
  • Melt chocolate as directed on package; stir in oil.
  • Cover side of 12-inch-tall foam cone with foil. Spread bottom of cone with 1 tsp. melted chocolate; stand on plate, pressing cone gently onto plate to secure.
  • Insert toothpicks, 3/4 inch apart, in horizontal rows around cone, starting about 1/2 inch from bottom of cone and leaving about 1/2 inch of each toothpick extending beyond surface of cone. Lightly press 1 donut hole, filling side up, onto end of each toothpick, placing roundest side of donut hole away from cone.
  • Drizzle remaining chocolate over dessert. Insert peanuts into spaces between donuts as shown in photo.

Size Wise

Save room for this special-occasion dessert by planning ahead. For example, watch portions and choose lower-fat foods beforehand.

How to Use a Piping Bag

Insert the desired decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway, forming a cuff. Fill bag halfway with the pudding. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it's tight against the pudding. To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from the top, keeping bag twisted closed to prevent leaking from the top of bag.

Important Note

We tested this recipe using donut holes purchased from a donut shop. If you are instead preparing the recipe using donut holes purchased from your supermarket, you might need to use more donut holes in order to completely cover the foam cone.

Make Ahead

The donut holes can be filled with the pudding ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before using as directed.
