    • Remove from the oven and transfer the donuts onto a wire rack until cool enough to handle but still warm.


    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. If the glaze is too thick, add additional milk, ½ teaspoon at a time until the desire consistency is reached.
    • Add food coloring and mix until the color is blended well.


    • Set up a wire rack with parchment paper underneath.
    • Dip each donut halfway into the icing then, place on the wire rack.
    • In a microwave save bowl, melt the chocolate in 30 second increments. Prepare a pipping bag with a small round tip (such as round tip #2)
    • Pipe 8 lines equally spread apart from the center of the donut to the outside of the donut.
    • Make a wide “U” shape connecting two of the lines near the center of the donut. Continue connecting the rest of the lines with that “U” shape all the way around the donut.
