Place heat safe bowl over the pot and fill with the coconut butter and coconut oil. Stir continuously to melt evenly. Carefully remove the bowl from the double boiler and mix in the mandarin juice and half of the zest.
  7. Add the donut holes one at a time to the glaze and use a spoon to coat well with the glaze until well coated.
