Grinch Donuts

The Grinch is by far one of my favorite Christmas movies. Definitely in my top 5.

With that being said, we watch Jim Carey’s version of The Grinch every single year and to go along with the movie, we always create a fun new Grinch themed treat to enjoy while we watch the movie.

We’ve made everything from Grinch Ice Cream to Grinch Jello Shots (for mom and dad of course). And now we are adding Grinch Donuts into the mix.

So, if you enjoy Grinch desserts, this one is for you!

Add the Coffee Creamer to the batter, and stir altogether, until well mixed.  Batter will be a little lumpy, but that’s okay. 

Ladle the batter into the Silicone molds, and Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and let cool for a few minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. 

Now it’s time to make the frosting. Start by mixing the Powdered Sugar and the Coffee Creamer until smooth and creamy.
