Start Cooking

Make the Donut Holes

  1. Begin by heating oil in pot

  2. Roll dough into one-inch-wide rope, and cut into one-inch pieces. Roll into ball shape.

  3. When the oil is ready (375 degrees Fahrenheit), gently drop about six doughnut holes at a time into it. 

  4. Using a wooden spoon, slowly roll the dough in the oil until it’s golden all over, remove from oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate while you drop in more dough.


  1. Combine glaze ingredients in large bowl. Mix ingredients together until smooth. Add more hot water as needed for the consistency desired. I like mine to be fairly thin.

  2. Dip freshly fried donuts into the glaze (this tastes delicious and also keeps the moisture in). 

  3. Place toppings in individual bowls so they are easy to dip into! Let the fun begin: dip and decorate in toppings of your choice.


Try skewering the donut holes for easier and neater dipping (and eating!).
