July 4th Holiday Donut – Top Easy & Cheap Patriotic Party Snack Food Design Project

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray, use a paper towel to lightly spread/remove excess spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the milk, eggs, vanilla, butter and oil. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix just until combined.
  3. Transfer the batter to a large piping bag or use a ziploc bag with one corner cut off. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each donut hole about 2/3 full. Tap the donut pan against the counter to release any air bubbles.
  4. Bake the donuts for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the donuts sit in the pan for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack. Allow the donuts to cool completely before moving on, I suggest 3-4 hours or overnight.

AMERICAN FLAG DESIGN

  1. Melt half of the vanilla Candiquik, following the instructions on the package. You don’t want the Candiquik to be too runny, so if yours seems too runny, let it sit for a couple of minutes.
  2. Transfer the melted Candiquik into shallow bowl that will easily allow you to dip the donuts into. Dip each donut into the Candiquik, allowing the excess to fall off. Place the donuts on a cooling rack, allowing the access to continue to fall off. Once you’ve dipped all the donuts, place them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Save the remaining white Candiquik.
  3. After 30 minutes, begin to prepare the blue Candiquik. Melt 2 sections of the Candiquik, again following the instructions. Once it is melted, add several drops of blue food coloring until you get your desired color of blue. If the Candiquik seems to thicken at this point, add a small spoonful of Crisco and stir. If needed add more Crisco until you get your desired consistency, which it should be easy enough to drizzle. Transfer the blue Candiquik into a squeeze bottle or piping bag (I prefer a squeeze bottle as I have more control over the flow of Candiquik). Fill the upper left hand corner of each donut with blue Candiquik, as displayed in the pictures. Return the donuts to the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, begin to prepare the red Candiquik. Melt 2 sections of the Candiquik, again following the instructions. Once it is melted, add several drops of red food coloring until you get your desired color of red. If the Candiquik seems to thicken at this point, add a small spoonful of Crisco and stir. If needed add more Crisco until you get your desired consistency, which it should be easy enough to drizzle. Transfer the red Candiquik into a squeeze bottle or piping bag. Draw the red stripes as displayed in the pictures.
  5. Return to the refrigerator as you re-heat the white Candiquik. Once re-heated use a toothpick to add white dots to the blue section of your flag.
  6. Store in an airtight container – I prefer them to be in the fridge so the Candiquik doesn’t smudge.
