What fun to include some yummy TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk to make them even more chocolatey. Chocolate Milk is a treat in our house and we love that TruMoo has no artificial growth hormones, no high fructose corn syrup and is fresh from your trusted dairy. The kids also thought it had great Chocolate Marshmallow flavor! baked-donuts

Now for the chocolate glaze. Be sure to sift your ingredients so you don’t have chunks of powdered sugar in your glaze. Find TruMoo Recipe inspiration on Pinterest

Have fun with this part. Dip each top of the doughnut into the chocolate glaze and add sprinkles. What are donuts without any sprinkles. baked-donuts

I know you will be tempted to dig right into your chocolate treats, but allow the glaze to harden before spreading out the chocolate breakfast treat.
