If you’re anything like me, you’re still not over the insanity that was Avengers: Infinity Wars. What better way to ease the pain, then by eating it away?
My favorite time of year is here at long last. No, not the scorching summer days and long warm nights. The grandest holiday of all– National Doughnut Day!
Last year, I embraced my inner Peter Parker and spun together some spectacular Spider-Man doughnuts! This year, things are getting bigger, better, meaner and greener.
These colorful creations are super soft, sweet and scream HULKKKKK! Whip up a dozen the next time you’re craving a COLOSSAL treat!
Feel free to share with friends, if you have the strength…
(I know, I know. I was trying to be nice.)
