It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Halloween – it is by FAR my favorite holiday. I don’t know if it’s the fact that Halloween gives me a legitimate excuse to dress up and pretend to be a totally different person – or that it gives me the opportunity to unapologetically require everyone else to show up in a costume too. Either way, I am all about it.

And what celebration is complete without some KILLER sweet treats to go along with it?! For past Halloween celebrations, I have made these adorable Ghost Cake Pops, this super delicious Spider Web Cheesecake, and some quick and easy Witch’s Bark. All great options if I do say so myself.

But this year I made Spider Web Doughnuts…and I am kind of obsessed.

Typically, when you get a chocolate-based doughnut at your local doughnut shop, it is dry and flavorless. I’m not sure why this is the case…but I can tell you it’s a great disappointment to chocolate lovers everywhere.

But these guys are different. The chocolate doughnuts in this recipe are DELIGHTFUL. I’m serious… they are moist and chocolatey (without being too rich) and baked to perfection (instead of fried). And did I mention they are adorable?!

These are a great go-to for your Halloween Festivities this year. And if you are not into the purple, you can switch the colors up any way you want. For a more traditional look, leave the icing white, and use a dark chocolate to make the web! Whatever color combo you choose, you really can’t go wrong!

Happy Halloween Baking everyone!

Instructions
 

FOR THE DOUGHNUTS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a doughnut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
  • In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, mix butter and sugars together.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Slowly stream in milk and mix until combined.
  • Use piping bag to pipe batter into doughnut pan. Fill each doughnut 2/3 of the way full.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let doughnuts cool in the pan.

FOR THE ICING

  • Set up a wire rack with a parchment underneath.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk and imitation vanilla extract.
  • Mix in a few drops of desired food coloring.
  • Dip doughnut halfway into the icing and place on the wire rack.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in 30 second increments.
  • Prepare a piping bag with a small round tip (I used a #2)
  • Place about 1/3 of the white chocolate into prepared piping bag.
  • Pipe 8 lines equally spread apart from the center of the doughnut to the outside of the doughnut.
  • Make a wide "U" shape connecting two of the lines near the center of the doughnut. Continue connecting the rest of the lines with that "U" shape all the way around the doughnut until you get back to the original "U" shape.
  • Repeat the process about halfway up the line.
  • Repeat the process about 3/4 of the way up the line.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

It makes pricing quick and easy.

You never have to stress about undercharging again.

Basically, it’s the best thing EVER.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.
