Red Vines Donut Holes

Red Vines Donut Holes

Enjoy a cute little donut hole filled with sweetness. These little treats will combine the familiar goodness of donuts with the classic flavor of Red Vines Twists.

Ingredients

1 ⅓ cups All-purpose flour
½ cup Sugar
1 ½ tsp Baking powder
½ tsp Salt
½ cup Milk
½ tsp Vanilla extract
¼ cup Unsalted butter, melted
1 Egg
12 RED VINES® Original Red Twistschopped into small pieces
½ cup Water
1 tsp Sugar
For Topping:
¼ cup Melted butter
½ cup Sugar
1 tbsp Cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 375F degrees and spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a smaller bowl, combine the milk, vanilla extract, melted butter, and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to fully combine.

Add a tablespoon of donut batter to each mini muffin tin slot. Bake for 16 to 17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a donut hole comes out clean. When cool enough to handle, transfer the donut holes to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

While the donut holes bake, make the filling. Combine the Red Vines Original Twists, water, and sugar in a skillet over medium-low heat. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the Red Vines have completely softened and broken down, about 10 minutes. Scoop the melted Red Vines into a piping bag fitted with a circular tip.

Using a sharp paring knife, make a small “X” in the bottom of each donut hole and fill with the melted Red Vines. Melt the butter for the topping in a small bowl and combine the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl.

Brush each donut hole with melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Enjoy immediately.
