  • 1⅓ cups all purpose flour

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder

  • r½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

01. Mix Donut Batter and Bake for 16–17 Minutes

Preheat oven to 375F degrees and spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a smaller bowl, combine the milk, vanilla extract, melted butter, and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to fully combine.

Add a tablespoon of donut batter to each mini muffin tin slot. Bake for 16 to 17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a donut hole comes out clean. When cool enough to handle, transfer the donut holes to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

02. Melt Red Vines Filling

While the donut holes bake, make the filling.

Combine the Red Vines Original Red Licorice Twists, water, and sugar in a skillet over medium-low heat.

Simmer, stirring frequently, until the Red Vines have completely softened and broken down, about 10 minutes.

Scoop the melted Red Vines into a piping bag fitted with a circular tip.

03. Fill Donut Holes & Cover in Cinnamon Sugar

Using a sharp paring knife, make a small “X” in the bottom of each donut hole and fill with the melted Red Vines.

Melt the butter for the topping in a small bowl and combine the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
