EEK! These monster donuts are as cute as they are creepy! If you are looking for an easy treat to make for Halloween (party food, breakfast, snack, etc), this one is a great choice! We used a package of biscuit dough to make these easy air fryer donuts.

They require zero effort aside from tossing some pre-packaged dough into an air fryer!
