There are two types of Halloween people: those who genuinely like all things terrifying, and those who are more comfortable with the not-so-scary, Disney-friendly route. If the latter applies to you, then these spooky yet magical Mickey Mouse Frankenstein doughnuts are the perfect thing to celebrate Halloween with. I mean, how cute are they?!

While they might look complicated to make, the steps are surprisingly simple, and the end result is sure to impress all of your Disney-loving friends and family (and earn you major bonus points if you have kids!). Bright green and black make up the colours of the doughnuts, creating an immediate Frankenstein's monster effect, and grey fondant is used to create adorable "bolts" on either side. Black candy melts (or dark chocolate melts, like I used) make up Mickey's signature ears, giving him the perfect Halloween twist. Keep reading for the full recipe for these spooktacular treats, and have even more fun eating them up!

Mickey Mouse Frankenstein Doughnuts Recipe

Ingredients

  1. For the Doughnuts:
    1 cup flour
    1/3 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 large egg
    1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons whole milk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1 box of gray fondant
    1 bag of black candy melts
    1 can of silver edible spray
    Powdered sugar for dusting on the cutting board
  1. For the Vanilla Glaze:
    4 cups powdered sugar
    1 tablespoon clear corn syrup
    1/2 cup whole milk
    1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
    Green and black gel food coloring

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and spray a doughnut baking pan with Pam baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  5. Spoon batter into doughnut pan, and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 6 minutes before removing from the pan and placing the doughnuts onto a wire rack.
  7. Repeat steps until all batter is used.
  8. Roll out the fondant onto the cutting board to be about 1/8 inch thick.
  9. Cut out the shape of the electrical bolts (I just used a knife). You will need 30 cutouts for all the doughnuts.
  10. Spray each piece with the edible dust if preferred. My fondant already had glitter, so I left it as is.
  11. Allow the pieces to dry for an hour.
  12. Using a standing mixer, combine the powdered sugar, corn syrup, milk, and vanilla extract, and mix on medium to high speed until smooth and thick.
  13. Scoop about 3/4 cup of the icing into 2 bowls.
  14. Add a few drops of green to one bowl and a few drops of black to the second bowl.
  15. Scoop some of the two icings into their own piping bag.
  16. Pour the remaining icings into their own squeeze bottles, and set aside.
  17. Using a sharp knife, cut slits into the top corners of the doughnut for Mickey's ears.
  18. Place a black candy melt into the slits.
  19. Using the black icing piping bag, pipe the lines of Mickey's hair.
  20. Fill in the lines with the black icing, and allow to dry for 30 minutes.
  21. Using the green icing bag, pipe a line under the black lines for his skin.
  22. Fill in the rest of the doughnuts with the green icing, and allow to dry for an hour.
  23. On the back of the fondant piece, pipe a skinny line of icing and place a toothpick into the icing. Carefully push the toothpick into the side of the doughnut.
  24. Enjoy!
