How to Reheat & Store Easter Bunny Donuts

The best way to store these Easter Bunny Donuts is to keep them in airtight containers. These should be fresh for up to 48 hours, at room temperature. 

Best Way to Store Easter Treats Leftover

Donuts that are cream-filled, or with dairy-based toppings should be kept in the fridge. Meanwhile, plain donuts or donuts with powdered sugar can be stored in airtight bags or containers, away from direct sunlight, at room temperature. 

How Long Will Easter Bunny Donuts Last in the Fridge?

If properly stored, these Easter Bunny Donuts should last you for a week in the fridge. 

Can I Freeze Easter Donuts

Yes, you can freeze your Easter Donuts. It is better to store them in the freezer unfilled and unglazed.

Should you need to store leftover glazed donuts, here are tips on how to store them properly:

  • Line them up in a freezer-safe container, with the container lined with a cookie sheet. The donuts should not be touching each other and the glazed part is on top. 
  • Place the container in the freezer and allow your donuts to be frozen for 3 to 5 hours. However, you can also leave these overnight in the freezer. 
  • Remove your donuts from the freezer. You can use a spatula to get your donuts from the cookie sheet. Place each donut separately in an airtight plastic bag.
  • Make sure the donuts do not thaw. So, you have to be quick in doing this. 
  • You can vacuum-seal your containers or bags. Label the container with the date they were purchased and frozen. 
  • Put these donut-containing plastic bags in the freezer again. These should last you for about 3 months in the freezer. 

How to Reheat Easter Bunny Dessert

There are two ways to thaw your donuts: 

  1. Thaw them in the fridge. 
  2. You can also thaw and reheat your donuts in the microwave or oven. Just make sure not to reheat them for too long to prevent the donuts from drying out. 

Do not put thawed donuts back in the freezer.

Easter Donuts FAQs

Do donuts freeze well?

Yes, they do. The best way to freeze them is unfilled and unglazed. 

Should donuts be baked or fried?

A fried glazed donut has more calories than baked donuts. This is because baked donuts do not absorb that extra fat from the oil, which happens when a donut is fried. 

What kind of flour is best for donuts?

All-purpose flour is used for most donuts. These create fluffy donuts, unlike donuts made with bread flour. 

What makes a good donut?

A good donut is fluffy and does not depend on the glaze or filling to give it flavor. It should have a nice sweet aroma and a nice yeasty flavor.
