Disney Halloween Dessert Recipe

Halloween is by far my favourite holiday, and being a Disney family, we tend to give our Halloween decorations and treats a fun Disney twist! (Like with our Mickey Halloween Wreath.)

After watching the following Disney short with Mickey as Frankenstein’s monster, I thought it would be fun to do a Mickey Frankenstein Dessert – and donuts are always a welcome treat around here!

It would also be fun to make these donuts after reading one of the below Frankenstein-inspired books:

These Frankenstein Donuts are super simple to make and taste delicious! They would make a great addition to your Halloween party or a special Halloween brunch recipe.

They are also easy enough for older kids to help make. Ella loved dipping the donuts (and her fingers) in the melted candy melts.

It can get a bit messy, but that’s part of the fun!

Of course, you can leave out the ears for a Mickey-free Frankenstein Donut, which would be great for a Hotel Transylvania Movie Night.
