Homemade Doughnuts Featuring JELL-O!

Jess Gonzalez – On Sugar Mountain


Hello friends!

Isn’t this time of year so exciting? Spring is in the air! True, April showers and all that jazz, but the sun is out longer, the birds are chirping…adorable fruit-flavored doughnuts are being shared at every spring party you attend.

Oh, wait. That last one was just a daydream of mine. But if you like the idea of serving bright, colorful, fruity doughnuts this Easter, have I got the recipe for you!

Now decorating Easter eggs is fun and all, but wouldn’t it be even more fun to decorate these baked doughnuts and eat them with family and friends?

Edible decorations are totally the way to go this Easter, and these simple-to-make baked doughnuts can be decorated with every kind of sprinkle and virtually any flavor frosting thanks to JELL-O! I kid you not, my friends. Just a pinch here and there of your favorite flavor of JELL-O infuses a classic vanilla glaze with a burst of fruity flavor.

I went with five flavors to decorate my doughnuts: Strawberry, Lemon, Lime, Orange and Berry Blue, but don’t let that stop you. Get creative! Mix and match them to your heart’s content. Then impress all your guests this Easter with adorable edible decorations by putting these doughnuts all across the dinner and dessert tables.

Though, people might have trouble waiting until dessert…This is also just a super fun way to spend the weekend with the kids! Trust me, the eggs can be intimidating. They break (or if they are hard-cooked, they smell a little funky) and decorating doughnuts can be just as fun.

Oh and did I mention they are baked? Infinitely easier than fried and absolutely kid-friendly.
