Pumpkin Pie Donut Holes

Why nwwot, right? Gotta get my love for pumpkin and sweet treats in somehow. Of course, most of these pumpkin donut holes will be for the kids. I will save one for my husband and myself. A good moist donut hole—these are things I dream about! (Yeah, I know the word moist is weird, but what do you want from me when describing the perfect donut hole?)

Everyone who knows me, knows that I have a ridiculous love affair for sweets. Ridiculous might not even be the word for it. During this diet, I have really limited my sugar intake immensely. Even my coffee is now sugar free, thanks to Jordan’s Skinny Syrups. (Not a paid promotion.) I am down 15 pounds!

This will be a nice weekend breakfast for the kids, maybe with a nice cup of hot cocoa. What a treat that will be when the come downstairs to find pumpkin donut holes and hot chocolate with whipped cream on top. They will lose their little minds! Kids are only little once, and I tell you, there is nothing more special then the kiddos adoring the special seasonal foods I make for them. These are the same fond memories I have of my mother–feelings that keep me close even though she and I live across the country from each other.

Its important you do this in 2 separate bowls as the recipe says. It makes mixing everything together an easier process.
