My sweet husband bought me a mini donut pan for my birthday this year.
Of course that meant I had to make donuts for my family.
Twist my arm.
Aren't they cute??
I have a soft spot for mini versions of things. Maybe that's why I love tiny babies so much??
To be honest, these taste more like adorable donut shaped cupcakes than regular donuts. I think it's because they are baked not fried. Either way they are delish - and let's face it, cupcakes and donuts are about the same on the scale of healthy breakfast foods.
Add some pastel sprinkles and make these for Easter this year!

I'd say this cookie is looking pretty good for it's age :)
Just wanted to share this treat with you to help you celebrate the occasion.
Grab some oreos (I used double stuff, duh) and dip them into some melted chocolate. I used white chocolate this time and added some pink to make it pretty! Top with sprinkles or just set them on wax paper to dry. If you want to add some chocolate decor like I did, melt some more chocolate and add whatever color you want to use (or leave it white if you prefer). I just put the melted chocolate into a baggie and piped out some hearts. These would be great in all different pastel colors for Easter - and eggs are a super simple decoration to draw on top!
This is a fun treat that the kids can join in on too. My 3 year old LOVED helping me decorate these.
Give them a try - I would love to see how yours turn out!
