Bloodshot Monster Eyeball Doughnuts Ingredients & Supplies
- 1 box of cake mix (we used Betty Crocker Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Cake Mix)
- 2 Eggs
- 2/3 Cup of Water
- 1/3 Cup of Vegetable Oil
- White Wilton Candy Melts
- Red Icing
- Black Icing
Making Bloodshot Monster Eyeball Doughnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then, mix cake mix, water, vegetable oil and eggs according to the instructions on the cake mix box. Spray doughnut pan with cooking spray. Pour doughnut mix into a measuring cup for easy pouring. Pour the doughnut mix into the pan, making sure not to fill all the way to the top. Bake in oven for 12 minutes. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Melt white candy melts in the microwave or with Wilton Melting Pot. Dip the top of each doughnut into the white candy melts and then place on a plate. Let harden for 5 minutes.
Place an unmelted candy melt in the center of each doughnut. (You could also try using a mini marshmallow instead.)
Using a no. 2 round tip draw 5-6 squiggly lines (aka veins) on each doughnut using red icing. Then, using black icing, draw a dot on the center of each candy melt.
All set! Your Bloodshot Monster Eyeball Doughnuts are ready to enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and that you and your family have a very happy Halloween!
