These delicious and festive doughnuts are sure to be a hit at your Halloween party this year! * made with 100% juice from Juicy Juice.


Are you looking for the perfect treat to take to a fall or Halloween party this year? These Apple Cider Doughnuts made with Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice are just what you are looking for! My kids gobbled these up so fast! We even had a family night and decorated the doughnuts! My kids loved placing the eyes all over them, but they were so tasty that not all of them made it to decorating! The best part about these Spooky Apple Cider Doughnuts: how simple the recipe is! The next best part: That Juicy Juice is made of 100 % juice adding sweetness without all the sugar!


Here is how you make them :


What you need:

    • 2 Cups Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice
    • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon each pumpkin spice, freshly grated nutmeg,  and cinnamon
    • 2 large eggs
    • 6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
    • doughnut maker or doughnut pan


Directions: Boil Juicy Juice Apple Juice and let reduce about 10 minutes. While Apple Juice is reducing, mix all of the dry ingredients in a stand mixer. Add in the melted butter, eggs, and apple juice to your dry ingredients. Mix on medium speed until everything is incorporated. Place one spoonful in each doughnut shaper. I used a doughnut maker but if you are using a doughnut pan, cook at 350 degrees in a pre-heated oven until golden brown. While doughnuts are hot, dip them in a cinnamon/sugar mixture if you like.

To decorate: I used pre-made eye candies and attached them with gel decorating icing.

I’m not sure if it is the pumpkin spice or the Juicy Juice apple juice reduction but these are so fragrant!

Excuse me while I go enjoy the smell a little longer!!
