Whip them up for themed parties, showers, sleepover extravaganzas, or just as a surprise after school snack. Pair them with our magical toadstool cupcakes!

You’ll want to serve them immediately because the donuts dry out relatively quickly. However, you could coat them in frosting to lock in the moisture.

That step will add to your prep time and increase the sugar and calorie content but could be worth it depending on your needs.
