Gluten free mini mint choc chip doughnut recipe

I baked lots of sweet treats for Christmas, some of which I served on my dessert table others that I gave as gifts. Most of which I unfortunately didn't have time to share with you at the time.

I love baking and serving mini doughnuts at my parties and Christmas was no exception. I made two varieties, a lovely moist vanilla baked doughnut studded with chocolate chips, topped with a mint flavoured fondant icing and sprinkled with gold glitter...

Mint flavoured fondant icing

  1. Sieve fondant icing sugar into a small bowl

  2. Add water a teaspoon at a time till you have a runny icing the consistency of melted chocolate

  3. Add a few drops of peppermint extract to taste, and food gel, stir so flavour and colour is evenly dispersed. Use immediately.

To decorate

  1. Spoon icing on to top of doughnuts and using the back of the spoon, spread icing out so it evenly covers the top of the doughnut.
