Galaxy Puff Pastry Donuts with Chocolate Starglazing

These faux donuts are great alone, but for an extra decadent dessert,  serve them with ice cream and make extra icing. When the glaze is warmed up it tastes remarkably like hot fudge.

Ingredients

Stars

  • 1 box puff pastry ( I used Pepperidge Farm which is vegan)
  • 1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
  • flour or powdered sugar for rolling

Starglazing

  • 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 4 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • pinch sea salt

Optional

  • sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • Unfold one sheet of puff pastry onto a work surface dusted with flour or powdered sugar and roll out just enough to "heal" the fold marks
  • Using a 3-4 inch star cookie cutter, cut out "donuts"
  • Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry
  • In a small cup or bowl make an egg wash by whisking together the egg and milk
  • Paint the stars with the egg wash
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown

Starglazing

  • In a bowl large enough to dip donuts, mix together the melted butter (or coconut oil) and cocoa powder.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth
  • Dip stars into glaze and then dust with sprinkles if desired

Notes

Don't re-roll the puff pastry, it never works out! If you don't want to waste the scraps, bake them on a separate cookie sheet until golden brown, but be aware that smaller pieces will bake quickly.
