  • Once the butter has melted, remove from the heat and whisk in the confectioner's sugar and maple extract. Cool for 2-3 minutes and then dip each donut into the glaze. Dip pretty quickly as the icing likes to harden fast (you can return icing to heat if needed). Add chopped apples to the tops of each donut and add extra icing if desired.
