Doughnut Hole Kebobs
The often overlooked doughnut hole receives an overdue upgrade with doughnut kebobs!
Simply add 5 doughnut holes to a skewer and gently sift colored powdered sugar* over doughnuts.
Traditionalists are welcome to substitute with cinnamon or cocoa powder.

Serve along with chocolate syrup, dulche de leche or fruit jam for dipping!

Ice Cream Sandwich D long

Ice Cream Sandwich Doughnut
Slice a doughnut in half and add a scoop of Klein's ice cream for an original, memorable Chanukah treat. Klein's ice cream is available in pareve and dairy in a variety of flavors. We used Klein's vanilla frozen yogurt; the tanginess of the yogurt ice cream complemented the yeasty doughnut and rich chocolate sauce.

*Trick to making colored powdered sugar:
Powdered food coloring! It can be found at specialty food stores or baking supplies shops. (Be sure to look for a hechsher.) Very slowly add a few drops of food coloring to a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and mix well. Keep adding until you reach desired colors, bearing in mind that the colored powder will stay soft.
