In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the holiday movie “Elf,” Krispy Kreme announced that it is partnering with Warner Bros. to offer the doughnut company’s first ever “Elf” collection.

The “Elf” doughnut collection is available in a limited-edition “Elf”-themed dozen box.

Buddy Snow Globe Doughnut is an original glazed doughnut dipped in light blue sugar cookie icing and white sprinkles, topped with powdered sugary snow and a chocolate “Elf” piece.

Buddy Makes Breakfast Doughnut is described as an original glazed doughnut topped with cake batter spaghetti buttercream, milk chocolate candies, sprinkles and a maple drizzle.

Christmas Lights Doughnut is an original glazed doughnut dipped in chocolate icing, drizzled with green icing and topped with rainbow sprinkles and a chocolate “Elf” piece.

And returning this year, the Santa Belly Doughnut is a doughnut filled with cookies and kreme filling, dipped in red icing and decorated with Santa’s belt and a belt buckle candy piece.

“Our new ‘Elf’-inspired doughnuts honor memorable moments from the movie in the most delicious way possible and embody it’s fun and festive spirit,” said Dave Skena, global chief brand officer for Krispy Kreme. “We know our fans are going to smile a lot when they spread holiday cheer to family and friends all season long with our ‘Elf’ holiday collection.”

Additionally, Krispy Kreme announced that its annual “Day of the Dozens” will return on December 12. Guests can purchase an original glazed dozen for $1 when they purchase any dozen at regular price.

Last month, Krispy Kreme celebrated Halloween with its Scooby-Doo-themed doughnuts.
