Countdown to Halloween - Monsters - Day 2

For the second day of the Countdown to Halloween, we made Monster Donuts. We had some leftover candy eyes from yesterday's meal, so this was a good way to use up the rest of the package.

The idea came from this pin on Pinterest that led to Your Home-based Mom.

On Your Home-based Mom, the donuts were chocolate. I looked for them ,but couldn't find any plain chocolate donuts. The only chocolate ones they had were already frosted.

So, plain donuts it is for today's recipe.

All you need to make this easy breakfast is donuts, green frosting, and candy eyes.

We spread the frosting on the donuts and added the eyes...and we were ready for breakfast.

Even though the girls are getting older, sometimes it is fun to do unexpected things with meals. I think it is more the tradition of doing the countdown than, perhaps, the actual food that is made. Nonetheless, having these special memories and traditions to look back upon hopefully will make them happy when they are older and reflect back on their childhoods.
