Making Donuts Out of Candy Using a Hydraulic Press

Lauri Vuohensilta of the Hydraulic Press Channel (previously) quite amusingly turned multiple bags of M&Ms and Skittles into incredibly sweet, sugar bomb donuts with the use of their hydraulic press.

The first try, using M&Ms, yielded a crumbly, somewhat successful donut. The chewiness of the Skittles, however, provided the perfect texture for a perfectly shaped donut that popped right out.
