Day 293 - Who Needs A Monster Donut in Their Life?

Hello Monsters. We are back together for another monster mash today. Getting together always calls for a little treat. When I think of a treat I think of donuts of course. Nothing can beat a ball of fried goodness. When i think of fall, I think about the crisp autumn air and cloudy days. As a kid, they always made for a great trip to the apple orchard. There was crunching around in leaves, picking apples and munching apple cider donuts. The apple cider donuts were a real treat for any fall day.

Today, let's try to recreate that delicious apple cider flavor. Let's whip up these monster treats to help celebrate fall and Halloween. First, I mixed up a batch of quick donut holes. You can find the recipe here on Cooking Classy: 15 Minute Donut Holes From Scratch. If you are short on time, use plain unglazed donut holes bought at the store. They will work too.

Now for the glaze that adds the apple and the monster to this anytime fall Halloween snack. You will need:

  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • green food coloring
  • 1-2 tablespoons melted butter
  • a pinch of salt
  • Wilton Large Candy Eyes {affiliate link}

Step 1: Place the cider in a small sauce pan. Turn the heat on high and let the liquid boil for 8-10 min or until the cider reduces down to 1/4 cup.

Step 2: While the cider is cooking, sift the powdered sugar. Add the green food coloring, melted butter and salt to the powdered sugar. Mix well.

Step 3: Add the reduced apple cider to the powdered sugar mixture and combine until smooth. If the mixture is still too thick to spread, add a tablespoon of cider until the glaze is thin enough to coat the donut but thick enough to cover the outside.

Step 4: Drop the donuts into the glaze, and coat the entire donut. Place the donuts on a cookie rack and place one candy eye on each donut.

Now warm up a cup of apple cider, invite a few ghouls over and enjoy a snack fit for any monster.

Well, I'm off to cut out some faux fur and fire up the glue gun for tomorrow's post. Until then, eat up Cyclops!
