Donuts for Dessert, Brilliant!

Today is National Donut Day, and in honor as such a sweet calendar event- I thought I would share some great donut inspiration with you. The next time you are planning a party- consider swapping your traditional cake out and serve donuts instead.

From top- left to right: Tray passed mini donuts, a simple stack of sweet potato donuts, homemade donuts via Bakerella, double chocolate donut, create a donut dipping station, glazed honey donut atop a hot white latte.

I also love the idea of serving guest warm donuts near the end of your party. Or even, sending them home as favors. Check out these donut hole bags, they would be prefect.

You can make these yourself. Check out the DIY template from Hello Lucky. You can download here.

Simple Holiday Dessert: Peppermint Bark

This oh-so simple peppermint bark recipe is a must try. Easy steps to create a festive dessert to have on hand for holiday guests or to take to take over to the neighbor!

What You’ll Need:
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 pound white chocolate, chopped (do not use chips)
  • 2 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1 bag (7.5 ounces) hard peppermint candies, unwrapped
  • Directions:

    1.Spray a 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; line with a piece of waxed paper. Crush candies (see note below).

    2.Place white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in rice cereal.

    3.Transfer mixture to prepared pan; with a spatula, spread to edges of pan.

    4.Sprinkle with crushed candy; with a piece of waxed paper covering the entire surface, press in gently (paper prevents hands from sticking to candy and chocolate). Chill until firm, 20 to 30 minutes (no longer, as candy will begin to soften).

    5.Peel waxed paper off. Break bark into 2-inch pieces. Store at room temperature in an airtight container, up to 1 week.
