We’re getting in the Hallowe’en spirit over here and we’re excited to share this fun treat with you all! I picked up the Today’s Parent magazine yesterday and saw this super fun recipe for Monster Donuts. It’s so easy and the perfect Hallowe’en recipe to do with the kiddos.
We got up early this morning to get all the goodies needed! A trip to Michaels & Safeway and we were set. Here’s what you need:
- Premade unglazed donuts (Safeway has them in the bakery section)
- Candy Melt (or you could do a homemade icing, just to stick sprinkles on)
- Candy eyes (Michaels OR get creative with black/white icing)
- Gummy teeth (I searched everywhere for these, I ended up with gummy worms!
Here’s what you do! Start by cutting small rectangle into the inside of the donut that you can sit the teeth in. This really didn’t work that well for me! I ended up actually just sitting them on top and it was fine. A girlfriend of mine thought a gala apple might work better to cut the triangles out of the teeth to make look like fangs… next time ill try that! But this was probably the hardest part. I couldn’t find the actual “teeth gummies” stated in the original recipe, so I ended up with gummy worms and did my best!
Next, prep your candy melts or icing if you choose and apply a layer onto the top of the donut. Have your sprinkles ready to go for dipping!
And now the teeth and eyes! Apply a thin layer (ha! I used a GOB to make it really stay) to back of the teeth and the eyes. Place on top of the sprinkles.
And that’s it! Super fun, the kiddos loved it. It was hard keeping their tiny mitts off them until after dinner (although they easily snuck a few gummies and candy melt wafers to bounce off the walls for an hour) but they were so excited to eat them! Super easy, super fun and great way to spend some time with kids and get creative!
Wishing everyone a fun and safe Hallowe’en!
