  • 1/2 pint of your favorite Hudsonville Ice Cream (we used Hudsonville Creamery Vanilla Blend and Hudsonville Mackinac Island Fudge)


  • Your favorite cereal (we love Lucky Charms & Cinnamon Toast Crunch)
  • Cookie crumbs 
  • Graham cracker 
  • Toffee bits 
  • Chocolate chips (also used for chocolate drizzle, if preferred. We used melted white chocolate chips)
  • M&M's 
  • Mint chips 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Spray donut pan or donut maker with nonstick cooking spray. 
  • In a large bowl or mixer, add cake mix, water, oil and eggs and mix until well combined.  Carefully add batter to donut pan or maker filling about 2/3 of the way.  Be sure not to overfill.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10-2 minutes or until a toothpick placed in the middle of donut comes out clean.
  • Once fully cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.  
  • Once cooled completely, carefully cut each donut in half.  
  • Place a generous scoop of ice cream onto the middle of one donut half and spread evenly to the edges with a spatula or back of a spoon.  Place the rremaining half of the donut on top of the ice cream forming a sandwich.  
  • Place ice cream sandwiches on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 2-3 hours.  
  • When ready to serve, roll half of the ice cream sandwich in your favorite topping and drizzle melted chocolate on top.  
  • Serve and enjoy!
