We’re Gushing Over These Adorable Jack-Jack Donuts

Serves
3

Ingredients

  • Donuts (homemade or store-bought)
  • Almonds
  • White candy melts
  • Mini, round sprinkles or candies
  • Beige and orange oil-based food coloring
  • Orange candy melts (optional)
  • Piping bag

  • Red, black, and blue gel food coloring

Helpful Tip

All cutting and oven use should be done by an adult.

Directions

  1. Use your choice of plain store-bought or homemade donuts. If using homemade, ensure the donuts are completely cool before decorating.

  2. For Jack-Jack’s ears, dip the pointy end of the almonds into melted white chocolate and stick into either side of the donuts. For his hands, do the same with the almonds, then stick into the donut on either side of the hole. Stick on a round sprinkle or candy for the nose.

  3. To make his hair, combine melted white chocolate with oil-based orange food coloring. Alternatively, you can just use orange candy melts. Transfer chocolate into a piping bag, then pipe long triangle shapes onto a sheet of parchment paper. Leave to set, then use a toothpick to carve fine lines into the chocolate for extra detailing.

  4. Melt more chocolate and add beige oil-based food coloring to get the desired color. Dip the donuts into the chocolate, then place on a wire rack to set. Carefully stick the chocolate hair into the donut using leftover melted chocolate.

  5. Place homemade or store-bought vanilla frosting in the microwave to create a thinner glazing consistency. Add red food coloring and mix until combined. Transfer frosting into a piping bag and cut a small hole at the tip. Place a baking tray under the wire rack, then pipe frosting onto the bottom 2/3 of the donuts—but leave the hands (almonds) beige! Let it set.

  6. Cut a mini marshmallow in half, then stick onto the donut for the eyes. Add black food coloring and blue food coloring to separate bowls of icing to create black and blue frosting.

  7. Pipe black royal icing around the eyes for the mask, and add thin black lines for the sleeve, collar, and mouth details. Complete the eyes with blue and black royal icing.

  8. Then, place a mini chocolate chip cookie in the center of the donut. If the mini cookies are homemade, take a bite out of each or use a cookie cutter as soon as they come out of the oven.
