Nirvana is coming…if you make these Toy Story Alien Pizza Donuts. They’re almost too cute to eat.
I just can’t get enough of the little green guys and am constantly thinking of ways to turn them into food. And so, these Alien donut holes were born. Since they’re from Pizza Planet, I had to pair them up with some pizza decorated donuts, obviously!
OOoooOOh, dessert awaits!
For more Pixar magic, try baking a WALL-E Galaxy Cake:
Toy Story Alien Pizza Donuts
- 1 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 Tsp baking soda
- 1/4 Tsp salt
- 1/2 Cup low-fat buttermilk
- 1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 Tsp vanilla extract
- Red and light green candy melts
- Zip-top bags
- White sprinkles
- Googly eyes
All cutting should be done by an adult.
Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray a donut pan AND donut hole pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt. In small bowl, whisk buttermilk, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Then add milk mixture to flour mixture, and whisk until blended and smooth.
Spoon batter into a large zip-top bag. Cut off a corner and squeeze batter into each donut cavity and donut hole pan, about 1/3 full. Then tap pans on counter to evenly spread batter into cups.
Bake donuts for about 13 minutes and donut holes for 6-8 minutes, or until tops of donuts and donut holes spring back when touched.
Cool in pan 3-4 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely before decorating.
MINI PEPPERONIS: Melt red candy melts according to package. Spoon melted candy into a small zip-top bag. Cut off a corner and pipe circles onto wax paper. Allow to set.
EARS AND ANTENNAS: Melt light green candy melts according to package. Spoon into a small zip-top bag and cut off a corner. Pipe antenna shapes and little triangles for ears on wax paper. Allow to set before decorating donuts.
DONUT PIZZA: In a small bowl, melt red candy melts according to package. Dip cooled donuts into melts, allowing any excess to drip back into bowl. Top with white sprinkles and “mini pepperonis.” Place on rack to set.
DONUT HOLES: In a small bowl, melt light green candy melts according to package. Dip cooled donut holes into melts, allowing excess to drip back into bowl.
While they’re still wet, add 3 googly eyes, plus the antenna and ears. Place on wax paper to set.
