  • Mixing bowl for icing sugar
  • Spoon
  • Tray
  • Scissors or Small Leaf Shaped Cutter


  • 1 Pack Mini Doughnuts -I got mine from ASDA although I so make my own from time to time, like my mini Cinnamon Doughnuts here.
  • 1 Bag Pretzel Sticks - I either get mine from ASDA in the Polish Foods section or Marks and Spencer with the Crisps.
  • 1/4 Bag Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk [for Mixing with the Icing Sugar] Usually I use water but the boys liked it with milk for these doughnuts.
  • 1 Pack Green Gummy Belts or Mint Leaves - One of mine would rather have real mint leaves than gummy ones.
  • A Few Drops Green and Red Food Colouring -I used Colour Mill's Oil Based ones.


  • Pop little pretzel stalks into the top of each mini doughnut.
  • Mix the icing sugar and milk together.
  • Add colouring.
  • Dip mini doughnuts into colouring and raise horizontally from bowl.
  • Turn over and leave on tray to set in refrigerator if needed.
  • Cut leaves from fizzy gummy belts with scissors [or use mint leaves]
  • Apply leaves next to stalks
  • Serve
