Shamrock Glazed Donuts #Recipe

St. Patrick's Day is just days away.  Have you decided how to have some fun on this "holiday"?  The best part of St. Patrick's Day are the traditions.  Our traditions have certainly changed, A LOT, since having kids but I still want to have fun but with the kiddos.  So now, I make fun crafts, decorate and make awesome green food!  

This year I decided to do a little twist on a family favorite and turn our baked donuts into Shamrock Donuts!!  Yummy!!  Such a fun treat or dessert to help spread the green cheer!
