First of all, if you are making your chocolate donuts from scratch, be sure to let them cool completely to room temperature before getting started. Any cake, cupcake, or dessert decoration must be done at room temperature to ensure that the items you add stay cool. If they melt, you can lose any stylish effects and all your pieces, in this case the candy eyes, will slide right off.

Once the donuts are cool, it’s time for the fun to begin!

Get your candy eyes ready and your frosting ready too! Add the tiniest dab of frosting to the back of the candy eye and place it firmly on the donut. You don’t need to hold the candy in place for any length of time, it will hold in place easily.

Try to keep the amount of frosting you use minimal, think of it like Elmer’s glue. I used very little so you wouldn’t see the frosting, instead you just see the Monster Eyes!

The candy eyes are crispy and crunchy and perfectly edible! They used to be hard to find and only available at cake shops, but lately I’ve seen them at most grocery stores and craft supply stores.

If you don’t like them, you just think of them as a stylish decoration, and pop the candy eyes off before you eat the donut.


You can arrange your eyes any way you like! Make stripes of eyes, add them all around the donut in a circle, or just add 2 eyes – like a mini donut person! Now there are 2 ways you could make a cool tray of Monster Eye Donuts:

1. Lay out all of the eyes, on every donut, using the same pattern. This is a cool way to make a collection of perfectly matching donuts.

2. Make every Monster Donut different! That’s what I did here.


Your Monster Eye Donuts are ready to eat immediately. These donuts will keep under a cake tray for around 2 days and a few days longer in a refrigerator. If you are making these for a party, I would recommend creating them early the same day or the day before.
