Ewok Donuts Recipe

Directions:
1. Open the can of biscuits and roll them out, cutting them into 8 “bear-like” shapes.
2. Heat 3 inches of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat to about 350ºF.
3. Fry the donuts on both sides until golden brown. Let drain on a wire rack.
4. In a bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, water, and orange food gel dye. Stir until combined then spoon onto the donut to form the headdress, leaving a circle in the middle for the face.
5. In a separate bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and water. Spoon the brown icing in onto the sides and top of the donut to form ears, then add icing to the center to form the face. Use a toothpick to add furry details.
6. Mix a spoonful of the brown icing with black food gel dye. Use that to create the eye, nose, and mouth details.
7. Once the icings have set the donuts are ready to serve.

Perfect for a bonfire celebration, you can definitely count on these treats as an ally in times of need and extreme hunger. Yub nub!
