Sure, you can buy donuts that are ready to go. But if you decorate donuts yourself, it’s even more fun.
Get out that food coloring that you hide way high up in the pantry and all those toppings. They’ll enjoy these donuts more than any other they’ll have over Chanukah (because it’s so much fun to choose your own colors and toppings!)
These are great for donuts as shown in these photos. This icing will also work on black and white cookies, or simply drizzle it over your bundt cakes.
¼-1/3 cup boiling water
1 lb confectioners sugar (3 ½ cups) + more as needed
Food coloring of your choice
Place the confectioners sugar in a bowl.
Slowly add the boiling water.
Add food coloring and mix.
Dunk the top of the donut into the icing.
Add more confectioners’ sugar if you want a thicker glaze (as shown in the photo above) that you can spread instead of dunk.
- ⅓ cup boiling water
- 1 lb confectioners sugar (3 ½ cups)
- 2 oz bittersweet chocolate
- 2 teaspoons corn syrup
- 2-4 teaspoons cocoa powder
- Mix the water and confectioners sugar. Melt the chocolate with the corn syrup, mix with white icing. Add in cocoa to get the dark chocolate color.
- ¼-1/3 cup boiling water
- 1 lb confectioners sugar (3 ½ cups) + more as needed
- Food coloring of your choice
- Place the confectioners sugar in a bowl. Slowly add the boiling water. This recipe works if you want to be able to “dunk” your donuts into the glaze or if you want “glazed” donuts where the icing drips all around the donut.
- Add more confectioners’ sugar if you want a thicker, spreadable glaze.
