Maleficent Donut Recipe

Not only is it already September but the month is almost half over. That means in just a few short weeks we’ll be celebrating all things spooky with Halloween right around the corner. Halloween is my favorite time of year. I have a tendency to go overboard decorating the house and really getting into the Halloween spirit. I look forward to dressing up just as much as the kids and I can’t wait to start thinking about what I’ll be this year. Two years ago, I went as one of my favorite Disney Villains – Maleficent. Evie was a baby and I found her the cutest Princess Aurora dress so it was a perfect match. That’s why I’m so excited to share this Disney inspired recipe with you. This Maleficent Donut recipe is pretty easy to make would be a great addition to your Halloween party, Disney movie night or Sleeping Beauty themed party. 

I mean, what Disney fan wouldn’t love these Maleficent treats? I can’t get enough! I love baking any kind of Disney recipes and this is definitely one of my favorites.
