Lucky Charm Doughnuts
This recipe was a combinations of ideas. The cupcake project blog had a recipe for Lucky Charm cupcakes. We wanted to change it up a bit and experiment with doughnuts. So we used a base baked doughnut from this recipe Alecia made for Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts, and added some green food coloring for St. Patrick's Day, and some crushed Lucky Charms like in the cupcakes. These turned out to be really sweet and the perfect color.

These are really cute for St. Patrick's day, the green doughnuts and the shamrock marshmallows on top really pulled it all together. The doughnuts aren't too sweet, which is perfect because the marshmallow butter cream is incredibly sweet.
