Bake or buy a dozen doughnuts. If you need some baked doughnut recipes or inspiration, you can find some ideas on my blog here. Make sure your doughnuts are cooled before proceeding.
Melt your green candy melts by microwaving them for 30 seconds then in 10 second increments until they're mostly melted and you can stir them smooth. Dip your doughnuts at a slight angle coating the tops and sides. Gently shake off the excess candy melts before turning the doughnuts right-side-up on a piece of parchment or wax paper. Pour your leftover candy melts onto a piece of cling wrap, wrap securely and put aside for another project.
Melt your red candy melts using the same method as the green. Dip your doughnuts into the red candy melts so just the top is coated and the green is visible. Shake off the excess and return the doughnuts to your wax/parchment paper. Wrap up the remaining red candy melts and save for a future project.
Melt your black candy melts and pour into a piping bag. Pipe "seeds" onto your doughnuts by piping a circle of chocolate and quickly pulling down while letting up the pressure on the piping bag.
Let the candy melts harden completely before packaging. Cake doughnuts are best eaten the day they're made.
