Halloween Donuts

Christine Nordstrom, Five-O Donut Co.

Serves 6

Icing:

  • 3 Tablespoons (43g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (180g) confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons (45ml) milk
  • sprinkles

Whisk the melted butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and 2 Tablespoons (30ml) of milk together in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 1 Tablespoon (15ml) of milk to thin, if desired. It's easier to dip the doughnuts if the glaze is thinner. Dip the doughnuts into the vanilla frosting, then cover with sprinkles.

Buttercream:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 drops food coloring, or as needed (optional)
  1. Cream room temperature butter with a hand mixer, the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, or a wooden spoon until smooth and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until fully incorporated. Beat in vanilla extract.
  2. Pour in milk and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add food coloring, if using, and beat for thirty seconds until smooth or until desired color is reached.
