St. Patrick's Day Mini Donuts


I bought a mini donut pan months ago.  I don't know what I was waiting for, but I still hadn't made any of those cute little donuts.  
St. Patrick's Day is this week.  A-ha!  I had my excuse.
So I found this recipe.  And I whipped them up.
It was so easy.  I don't know why it took me so long to finally make them.  And they were such a hit!  Once again, my hubby loved them and devoured most of them.  (That makes me happy!)

 

Nothing special here folks.  But a simple baked mini donut recipe with some fun green decorations.
I just added green food coloring to the icing recipe and added green sprinkles and white nonpareils.
By the way, white nonpareils are my FAVORITE sprinkle.  
I don't know why.  They're simple and plain.
But they're so teeny and cute and when sprinkled, they kinda remind me of polka dots.
That's probably it.  They're a polka dot sprinkle.


But really.  Don't they look adorbs with their little donut hole?  Who knew donuts could be cute!
And I love to make food festive!!


Now to get creative and make some of those delicious sounding mini donuts:





Thanks for stopping by!!
See you all tomorrow.
