These Vampire Donuts were the biggest hit of our last Halloween season.
I always do a lot of crafts and recipes with my girls during Halloween, as it’s my second fave holiday (following quite closely on the heels of Christmas). But these right here? Totally made it to the top of the list of awesomeness.
And how incredibly ridiculously EASY???
Seriously. I went and picked up a dollar bag full of vampire teeth and stuck them in some glazed donuts from Publix.
I had to push open the holes a little to make the teeth fit, but that was no big deal.
You could mix it up with some chocolate or autumn-flavored (apple or pumpkin spice anybody??) donuts instead, and you could dress it up by adding a little red gel icing to look like blood dripping from the fangs too.
But I’m a big fan of sweet and simple. :)
Share some pics if you try it!
For a little winter fun, I made some snowmen doughnuts for my girls that mildly resembled Olaf. Vaguely.
Anyway, these little guys were made by placing 3 small white powdered doughnuts on a plate, smooshing some broken pretzel pieces into the sides of the middle doughnut for arms, placing some milk chocolate chips upside down inside the bottom two doughnuts for buttons, and an orange peanut M&M inside the top doughnut for a carrot nose.
I then added mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. Since they don’t stick, what I did was make a hole with a toothpick where I wanted the eyes and mouth pieces to go, and then I could gently push the miniature chocolate chips into the doughnut where the holes were, with their pointy tips facing down.
It may not be my finest piece of artwork, but the smiles on my girls’ faces were enormous. :)
Doughnuts shaped like a kitten? A panda!
Must. Fly. To. Tokyo. Right. NOW!
I can taste their sugary goodness just from looking at this picture. The thrifty side of my brain tells me that I could make these if I just put a little effort and creativity into baking some doughnuts myself… and the I-need-sugar-cuteness-now side of my brain says, “quick – go bake some box brownies and cover them in a sugar icing and sprinkles before your brain’s taste buds explode!”
Well – that’s it. I’m off to raid the kitchen…
