Grandparents Day & Chocolate Donuts

Anna and Josie have been anxiously awaiting Grandparents Day at school.  All the kids in their grade spend weeks practicing songs and speaking parts, getting ready for this special day to honor their grandparents. 

The big day is finally upon us.  After their little concert, they get to have donuts and do some activities together in their classroom. 

The girls brought their own gluten free, egg free, nut free, soy free homemade chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze topped with, who could forget, pretty sprinkles!


The girls had their outfits picked out a couple days in advance and both wanted their hair done special for the big day.  I just love that!


So off they went for a big fun day!

Since we have to keep things real between us...

I have only one donut pan, so I baked the first six donuts and could hardly get them out of the pan.  I was so disappointed.  They just crumbled apart.  So for the rest of the batch, I added a few things to the remaining batter and thankfully, they turned out.  I am working on the recipe, but will post it when I get it just right.  At least the broken up, first round still tastes amazing!  Just need to grab a fork and dig in!
