Peppermint Candy Cane Donuts

Today I am excited to share with you a fun collection of some amazing Holiday Treats.  I joined in with a group of bloggers who are all sharing a Holiday treat on their sites today and we all joined them in one big Linky Party of Holiday Goodness.

My contribution are these YUMMY Peppermint Candy Cane Donuts!  I LOVE Chocolate…and I love Peppermint!  Have I told you that before? ;)

These are pretty darn tasty!  But what if you aren’t a huge chocolate fan?  What?  I know…how could there be someone who doesn’t like chocolate.  I do actually know a few of you!

Don’t worry…I’ve got you covered too.  Vanilla Peppermint Candy Cane Striped Donuts!

And well, you can always have one of each if you are having a hard time deciding.  They ARE mini-donuts after all!

Perhaps the best part about these are how SIMPLE they are to make.  All you need to do is make up your favorite chocolate or vanilla cake batter.  Or…just whip up a store bought cake mix.   candy-cane-desserts

Throw a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil or extract into the batter and then bake them in a mini donut maker.  I found mine at Target and I absolutely LOVE it.  I even threw in some crushed candy canes in some of the precooked donuts.

To make the frosting simply take 2 cups of Confectioner’s Sugar (powdered sugar) and mix in 2-3 Tablespoons of milk till you get the desired consistency.  Sprinkle crushed candy canes over the newly frosted donuts.  Serve with friends, a TALL glass of milk and a stripey straw!
