Donut Day!!!!! I was not going to make donuts, I was tired of donuts (well not really but they were making my pants too tight so I was telling myself I was tired of donuts) and we were NOT going to eat sweets for breakfast. We were going to eat cereal and toast and other things. But then My youngest started begging for donuts, and so did her boyfriend, and another friend, and then she (my youngest) PROMISED donuts to the guidance office SOOOOOOOOOO I had to make donuts :) Thank goodness because I was REALLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYY tired of cereal.
These are my favorite- peanut butter donuts with chocolate chips and a chocolate frosting. They are so moist and peanut buttery and chocolatey!!!!! A perfect donut for a sweet morning!!
