It’s Friday! I’ve made peanut butter glazed chocolate chip donuts to celebrate! These aren’t just any donuts. These are donuts where the glaze tastes like peanut butter fudge and the donut like a chocolate chip cookie! Since they’re donuts, it’s perfectly acceptable to eat them for breakfast, snack, or whenever! 😉
So, if you don’t have any plans this weekend, or even if you do, you really need to try these! Actually, I take that back. If you don’t have any plans this weekend, feel free to come over and rake leaves with us! When my husband left for work this morning our steps were buried in leaves, and you couldn’t see any green in our yard because the layer of leaves is so thick! The good news is that the strong winds yesterday finally blew the last of the leaves off of our huge trees, so this should be the last raking.
If you come, you can have donuts! 🙂 Have a great weekend!
