Out of creative ideas this holiday season? How about a Christmas tree...made of doughnuts? It's a crazy idea, but we think it works!
What You'll Need
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup water
- 100 glazed donut holes
What to Do
- In a large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
- On a large serving plate, form a ring with 14 donut holes. Fill center of ring with additional donut holes. Drizzle each donut hole on plate with sugar mixture to hold them together. Be careful when working with sugar glaze: It is very hot!
- Form a ring of 12 donut holes on top of first ring, then fill center with additional donut holes; drizzle with sugar glaze. Continue building smaller rings, using all but one of the donut holes.
- Finish the "tree" by topping with a final donut hole. Allow to set before serving.
Tip: If the sugar glaze becomes too thick, just reheat it until it's pourable again. Feel free to decorate the Christmas tree with assorted candies and top it off with a big colorful ribbon.
