Add the flour, yeast and sugar to the bowl of an elec­tric mixer fit­ted with a dough hook and mix. Con­tinue to mix while adding egg, but­ter, milk and rivyon. Mix for eight min­utes on medium speed un­til well mixed.

Trans­fer to a greased bowl and cover with plas­tic wrap. Set aside for 50 min­utes.

Roll out dough un­til it’s 1-cm. thick. Place on a tray and put in the freezer for 10 min­utes. Cut out cir­cles with a 3.5-cm di­am­e­ter with a cookie cut­ter. Cut out another cir­cle with a di­am­e­ter of 1cm from the mid­dle of the large cir­cle.

Heat oil for deep fry­ing. Add the dough pieces and fry for three min­utes on each side. Re­move and set on pa­per tow­els.

To pre­pare the ganache, add the cream and choco­late to a mi­crowave­able bowl and heat a few sec­onds at a time. Mix un­til smooth.

To pre­pare the ic­ing, add the ic­ing pow­der to a bowl and pre­pare ac­cord­ing to di­rec­tions on pack­ag­ing. Sep­a­rate into a num­ber of bowls and then add food col­or­ing to each one.

Dip the dough­nuts into the ic­ing and then set on a rack to dry. Top with sprin­kles if de­sired.
