Baking a Sweet Bread Christmas Wreath


  • bread dough – homemade frozen, or bread from a can
  • vanilla frosting
  • red and green chocolate candies – m&ms work great!


  1. Divide the dough up and roll them into tiny balls. Make these any size, but remember they get much bigger when they raise and are baked.
  2. Shape them into holiday designs. We made large and small Christmas trees, candy canes, and wreaths. I even did an S for Santa so he could eat something yummy when he comes down the chimney.
  3. Homemade or frozen bread dough: let the bread rise before placing in the oven. Once they are double in size, bake them using the directions of your bread dough recipe.
  4. Bread from a can: no need to let the dough rise, simply pop them in the oven and bake according to your packages directions.
  5. Bake your bread creations according to your bread recipe instructions. Once baked, let them cool completely.
  6. Spread your frosting on top of the baked bread. Make sure to get the frosting into the nooks and crannies of the bread.
  7. Now the best part, decorating! Place m&m’s into the nooks and dips of the bread. For the tree, they will help make it look like ornaments. For the wreath they are the berries! Add sprinkles as well if desired.
