RECIPE - Yummy Stuffed Donuts!

When it comes to a party on a budget, it pays to be creative. Store bought cakes can get quite expensive. Homemade cake can be a nice touch although we don't aways have the time. A simple solution can be utilizing donuts from your local grocery store!

Stuffed Donuts

1 dozen Chocolate glazed donuts
1 gallon favorite ice cream

Gently slice the donuts almost through, so that the top can be separated from the bottom- creating a flap. Scoop up some ice cream and place in the center of the flap.

If the Stuffed Donuts are for a child's party, let the children decorate their own with assorted candy and piped frosting! With a dozen donuts going for about $4.00, and ice cream around $5.00, it's easy and a money saver!

Tiramisu Donuts

For those with more discerning taste buds, serve up Tiramisu Donuts for dessert!

1 dozen Chocolate glazed donuts
1 gallon Vanilla Bean ice cream
1 bottle chocolate syrup
3 tablespoon Vanilla
2 cup brewed Coffee (can use decaffeinated)
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 large container Cool Whip
1 quarter cup instant coffee granules
Cinnamon


Mix two cups of coffee with Vanilla and sugar. Gently slice the donuts so that the top can be completely separated from the bottom. Drizzle the bottom halves of donuts with coffee mixture reserving a quarter of a cup for later. Add a scoop of ice cream to the center and cover with the top half of the donut. Mix remainder of coffee with chocolate syrup. Drizzle chocolate syrup over donuts. Add a dollop of Cool Whip and sprinkle lightly with coffee granules and cinnamon.

What goes better with coffee than donuts?
