Funfetti® Donut Holes


  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • ¼ cup multicolored candy sprinkles
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup multicolored candy sprinkles
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Whisk confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup sprinkles, 3 tablespoons milk, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 pinch salt together in a bowl to make a smooth glaze.


  • Step 2

    Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt together in a large bowl.

  • Step 3

    Combine 1 cup milk, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a small bowl. Stir into the flour mixture. Add melted butter and 1/4 cup sprinkles; mix until a soft dough forms.

  • Step 4

    Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a large pot to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet or wire rack with paper towels.

  • Step 5

    Scoop a few tablespoons of dough into the hot oil using a small ice cream scoop. Fry donut holes until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer donut holes to the paper towels using a slotted spoon; let drain and cool slightly. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Step 6

    Place a wire rack on a baking sheet. Dip one donut hole at a time into the glaze and place on the wire rack; allow excess glaze to drip off before serving.

  • Cook's Note:

    Substitute seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean for the vanilla extract in the glaze if preferred.

    Editor's Note:

    We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
