The BEST Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Donuts

The Best Mint Chocolate Chip Donuts

Is making donuts hard? It sure doesn't have to be with this simple recipe


My son Remington loves green. Every single day he wears green. It makes it pretty difficult that his older brother's hand me down clothes are mostly blue which was the typical "boy clothing" color. So every year when St. Patrick's Day comes around I go all out in green for him!




These mint chocolate chip cake donuts came to me one night when I was laying in bed wishing I had a donut. It was probably the Food Network show I was watching combined with me thinking what recipes I was going to create this week that had me thinking of donuts at midnight. But the problem was that I couldn't stop thinking about them until I made them 2 days later.


I knew I wanted to do something a little different then the typical mint brownie recipe this year for St. Patty's Day! And let me tell you these were even better then I could have ever imagined them to be! Just think about it for a second. A freshly baked donut topped with a mint glaze! Come on! What could be more delicious then that! And let me tell you they were just as fun to bake as they were to eat!
