How to Make Glaze for Donuts

Powdered sugar glazes are soft and sweet, and are most common for donuts. In contrast, a glaze with a chocolate base has a snap when you bite into it.

Step 1

Powdered sugar glaze - Whisk powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.

Step 2

Chocolate Nutella Glaze - Mix melted chocolate and nutella.

Step 3

Dip donuts in glaze.

Step 4

Cover with toppings then let glaze harden and enjoy!

Give the glaze time to harden to prevent it from smearing or dripping off.
