Take a Deep-Sea Dive with Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Doughnuts

All of the sweet with none of the sting.

Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Doughnuts

Underwater critters have never before been more adorable!

solids vs. liquids

Get started on your peanut butter doughnuts by mixing the dry and wet ingredients separately. See the recipe page for a full list of ingredients.

Make 'em mingle

Add the wet ingredients to the dry, then mix until combined to form a thick batter. Try not to over-mix; if you do, your doughnuts won't be super-fluffy.

Nice pipes

Transfer the batter to a piping bag and fill in your doughnut molds, about 3/4 of the way to the brim. Use a spoon to smooth them out. Put them in a 350 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

A Doughnut needs a glaze

VoilĂ , your doughnuts are baked! Magic! Combine freeze-dried strawberries with jelly, powdered sugar and milk to create your glaze.


Dip your doughnuts in the glaze, then give them some time to set.

Why so blue, Fondant?

If you haven't yet eaten all of the doughnuts (tempting, we know), use blue sky icing gel to color your fondant, then roll the fondant into 2-1/2-inch balls.

doughnut dumpling time

Use a rolling pin to flatten out the sky blue balls, until they're 1/8-inch thick. Wrap your doughnut holes in the fondant to create your jellyfish body.

Perfect circles

Use the remaining fondant to create a backdrop that will sit between the doughnut and the doughnut hole. A 2-inch cookie cutter should do the trick.

The squiggliest tentacles

Use the scraps to roll out jellyfish tentacles. Add more blue gel icing to create color variation.

Sculpt your masterpiece

Start to compose your jellyfish by arranging the tentacles on the doughnut.

Almost finished...

Lay the fondant circle on top.

Wavy gravy

Add the doughnut hole, then create a scolloped edge with the circle and a fondant sculpting tool.

Cute jellies only

Fit your black icing with a coupler and a #1 piping tip, then draw little jelly faces.

Are you blushing?

Color the leftover white fondant with pink gel icing, then use it to create little tongues and cheeks.

Better than the Aquarium
