Easy & Delicious Baked Cake Mix Halloween Donuts

Halloween DonutsWe’re halfway through October and that means Halloween will be here before we know it! I don’t know about you but I love everything about Halloween… The hauntingly (Is that even a word?) fun or spooky decorated houses. The thought that’s put into each child’s (or adults) costume. But I especially love the sweet treats, and I’m not just talking about the ones that fill your little one’s pillowcase. I’m talking about the ones that are baked leading up to Halloween and the ones that are baked afterward to use up some of that leftover candy.

Our Halloween Donuts are the PERFECT non-scary, non-gross treat that will have your kids SCREAMING for more!
