Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and my family and I are already planning the yummy treats we will be making. We’re basically donuts connoisseurs in our family, and make this donuts recipe on a regular basis.
It only seemed natural that I should head into the kitchen to make a yummy batch for Valentine’s. I tried something different with the icing on these donuts and love how they turned out.
