I love some of the crazy food trends that we’ve seen in recent months and I love trying to recreate them at home, from unicorn desserts to goth ice cream to glow in the dark donuts. I’m sharing the recipe for these Glow-in-the-Dark Donuts – or Glonuts – over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!) and you’ll see a detailed tutorial that will walk you through everything you need to know about making them. The secret is an unusual ingredient in the frosting, which makes the donuts glow under a black light. Unfortunately, you will need a black light to see the glowing effect, so keep that in mind when you’ve made a batch and want to show them off.
I think that these are a fabulous dessert for a Halloween party because they’re so eye-catching. Fortunately, they taste as good as they look, so they’re not just eye-candy. Feel free to try the glaze on store-bought donuts for a shortcut, too!
