Hallow-Scream OREO Fanta-Glazed Donut Recipe + Last Minute Ideas

Disclosure: This was a campaign I helped manage with Social Fabric. No compensation was received on my end, I was simply inspired by an awesome pairing featured in the campaign, Fanta and OREO 2 Packs!

Momma Told Me: Sometimes I'm a mad scientist in the kitchen.

We're getting down to the wire on the 2015 Halloween countdown but that doesn't mean you're out of time to plan a spooktacular spread for all the ghouls and goblins stopping by this Saturday. In fact, OREO and Fanta pair perfectly to meet any black and orange scheme you just might be planing. (They also make for a mean float, if I do say so!) When I was young girl one of our neighbors actually used to give out snack packs of OREOS in place of candy on Halloween, and it was always a special treat I'd save for Friday night and floats with my father.

In fact, as part of a national campaign Fanta and OREO have teamed up to inspire moms, and party planners, this Halloween to hit the kitchen and whip up something particularly ghoulish in their very own Spooky Snack Lab! From homemade ice cream and adorable black cat OREOS, some of my fellow bloggers have devised the most devilish, and adorable, creations with 2 Pack OREO cookies and mini Fanta cans. Personally, we're all stocked up and ready to pass out those 2 Pack OREOs come Saturday night. Now it's time for us to be the coolest house on the block!

All this talk of Orange and OREO creations really got me inspired, so I put my mad scientist brain to work and decided to make OREO donuts with an Orange-Scream glaze. These simple donuts have a nice thick brownie like texture that goes great with a cup of coffee or a nice tall glass of milk. And the glaze? It has the best hint of Orange flavor without being too sweet, while offering that beautiful orange color that will make ANY spread pop this Halloween.

If you're nervous about making donuts for the first time, don't be- anyone with a donut pan can make beautiful donuts (the pan IS the secret, I'm telling you.) And the satisfaction of watching that sweet glaze drizzle down the sides of those sweet little circles of heaven- priceless. Just make sure to let your donuts cool before glazing them, and you'll be good to go. Believe me, everyone is amazed by homemade donuts- it'll certainly win you some hostess points for sure!

Of course black and orange isn't enough to really make the Halloween theme pop- we had to add a little tongue in cheek decor to really dress up these puppies for the big day. With a few gummy and fake costume fangs from the dollar store, topped with edible eyes, these donuts instantly came to life. Suddenly they were Hallow-Scream Donuts. See what I did there? And the kiddos will love plopping those fangs in their mouth for pretend play after!

I made 2 dozen Hallow-Scream Donuts for my bowling league a few weeks back, as a test run, and they were the talk of the, erm, alley? I was told the little 'extra' detail of the blood on the fangs was an especially nice touch! I even packaged them up in a nice cake box, from the local craft store, with a decorative ribbon and fun label. That's the true fun in the holiday, isn't it? Dressing up things to make them seem like something creepy or playful, and that's exactly what OREO and Fanta help you do.

Since we had a few OREO 2 Packs left after my donut experiment, I decided to take some leftover ribbon and tie 2 together as a special thank you gift to my league mates. I've found this also helps cut down on cookie theft in the house in the mean time when the 2 packs can't individually go missing one at a time! Of course the extra Fanta 12oz bottles, well, those won't be heading to the alley. I'm too greedy with my orange floats to give them up! How do you like to dress up everyday treats and food for the Halloween holiday?


What Daughter Says: Get inspired by everyday ingredients and have a little Halloween fun when you combine your favorite treats.

Ingredients:

3/4 C Flour
1/2 C Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
1/3 C Golden Brown Sugar
1/2 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Salt
1 Egg
1/3 C 2% or Skim Milk
1/4 C Vegetable Oil
 1 TSP White Vinegar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
8 Finely Crushed OREOS

For Glaze:

1/4 C Whole Milk
1/4 C Fanta Orange Soda
3 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
Orange Food Color if Desired




Directions:
Preheat Oven to 350F

1. Grease a standard size donut pan and set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine flour, cocoa, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a small bowl whisk the egg, milk, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, whisk to combine. Gently fold in the crushed OREOs.

4. Transfer the mixture into a pasty bag with the tip cut off. Pipe into the donut molds, filling it 2/3 full. Bake for 10 MINS, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool entirely before icing.

5. While donuts cool prepare glaze by combining milk, vanilla, and Fanta in a medium saucepan over low heat, until warm. Slowly add confectioner's sugar, stirring constantly until well combined. Remove from heat and set over a bowl of warm water to maintain consistency. Dip the top face of cooled donuts into the glaze and set, glazed side up, on a cookie rack to set.

6. Decorate donuts with plastic fangs, or gummy fangs, and candy eyes. Serve at room temperature.

  14. Did the Fanta color up the glaze pretty good or did you find the need for adding the coloring? Cuz that's about the most awesome shade of orange I have ever seen. Did you feel the taste of the orange Fanta came through strongly? Do you think Diet Fanta could be substituted?
