Halloween is next week! The last week of October is packed with social events and school-related deadlines. In Colorado, Halloween usually brings snow and frigid temps! With a few Halloween parties on the calendar, I always include Halloween donuts in the dessert lineup. Here is how to make Halloween donuts in a minute.
Every year, I plan to make a Pinterest worthy Halloween dessert. And, every year I realize I lack the patience or talent. And, that is backstory on how I made these these fun and inexpensive Halloween donuts.
These Halloween Donuts take a minute to prepare and I only needed 2-3 items from the baking aisle.
These Halloween donuts are fun, easy and guaranteed to get a reaction from the crowd- even a crowd of teenage boys. And, kids and family of all ages can join in the fun. There is no oven required to make this dessert.
I made these last minute Halloween donuts for my sons and their friends.
The best part? All you need is a bag of mini donuts. I bought a few bags of Hostess donuts and a tube of icing gel or tub of icing.
If you buy the donut holes in the plastic containers in the bakery they are $3.49 or you can head towards the English muffins and buy the Hostess bag of cake donuts for $1.99.
I used Halloween themed cupcake liners to serve as a plate/napkin for the donuts. The cupcake liners reign in the powdered sugar and minimize sticky fingers!
So easy. No cleanup. No sticky counters.
Happy Halloween! Hope these Spooky Donuts show up in your kitchen!
