These Panda Donuts would make such a fun DIY project! For those parents who feel like they are not super crafty and had many Pinterest fails, this is the project to make: its super easy and everyone will have a blast!
Now, don’t worry, I am NOT telling you to fry donuts in a pan full of hot oil with toddlers running around, that is not considered easy last time when I checked! All you have to do is pick up some delicious jelly donuts from your favorite donut shop, get some thin Oreos when you run errands and whip some icing. That’s all it takes to make these cute Panda Donuts that are so much fun to assemble and eat!
- 6 jelly donuts
- 12 Oreo Thins
- ¼ cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- In a medium bowl combine milk, vanilla and powdered sugar, whisk slowly, until well combined and no lumps. The glaze must be thick, but still pourable, if needed add more powdered sugar or milk to get the right consistency. Dip donuts into the glaze, 1 at a time, if needed use a spoon to add more glaze on top of the donuts. The glaze should be thick enough to barely drip from the donuts. Set on a draining rack placed in a half sheet pan for 3-5 minutes.
- Once the glaze settled a bit, decorate the donuts. Cut Oreos in half to make panda ears. Cut a half of Oreo in half, to make panda's eyes. Use any remaining pieces for the nose.
- Using a toothpick dipped in glaze, add a little glaze into the middle of the eyes, to make them more real.
- Let the donuts stand for 3-4 minutes for the glaze to firm a bit more.
