SOTD Eats: Halloween Donuts

halloween-donuts

If you don’t know about my obsession with donuts you haven’t been around these parts much. It’s ok, I forgive you. But now you know. As I type this I’m drinking out of my donut coffee mug, with my donut water bottle close by and my donut note pad sitting next to my laptop. It’s true love. 

Anyway, in an effort celebrate Halloween (which is coming WAYYYYY too quickly) and my love for donuts I’m combining the two and making festive treats. 

I made monster donuts to give to my co-workers to celebrate the holiday and also because I found these eye sprinkles and had to use them.

To make the chocolate donuts I used the recipe at the bottom of this post and made a homemade glaze with powdered sugar, water, and food coloring. If you want to recreate these for family and friends I recommend hitting up the Michaels holiday section because everything is on clearance!
