Sometimes you just need a treat. A sweet, perfect treat. These cake mix doughnuts are just that. Simple to make. Wait, not just simple, but super fun to make and so delicious. You can’t help but to smile.
The other day, I told Joshua I had to go to the grocery store. I told him we were getting some things I needed for a recipe. He didn’t ask questions and off to Walmart we went. We picked up our Great Value milk – nothing out of the ordinary here! (I’m sure our home isn’t the only one who goes through tons of milk! It’s Joshua’s choice of drink and one that I don’t object to!) Then, we stopped at the holiday baking area. Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix? Yes, please. And of course you have to pick up a Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Vanilla Flavored Frosting too! Then, down the holiday aisle we went. And in the cart went M&M’s® Holiday Milk Chocolate and a bag of M&M’s® Hot Chocolate amazingness. I said, “That’s it. Let’s go!” Joshua quickly looked in the cart and then back at me. He was totally excited. His favorite things!
The whole way home he wanted to know just exactly what we were making. When I told him cake mix doughnuts — he even offered to rush home and clean his room. WOAH.

While we sat with our doughnuts and milk one thing came to mind. Did you know that there are more than 46.5 million Americans – that includes one in every SIX children – that rely on Feeding America food banks? That breaks my heart. As my son refilled his milk glass, the fact that on average food banks are only able to provide the equivalent of less than one gallon of milk per person per year because they simply don’t have it to give came to my mind. I use milk all the time for cooking and we love a glass of cold milk to drink. We go through several gallons of milk a week! But the good news is that you can help Feeding American in The Great American Milk Drive!
Families and children across our country are missing out on this nutrient filled and high protein drink. It’s one of the most in demand product of local food banks. For a small donation to The Great American Milk Drive, The Great American Milk Drive will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in need in YOUR local community.
And while our doughnuts were so fun to make (and delicious to eat) I could feel good knowing that when you purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger) and up to a gallon of milk will be donated to the drive. Tastes good and feels good. Bonus: You can get a coupon for $1.00 off two bags of M&M’s®.
