I don’t know about you…
but Monday is my least favorite day of the week.
Probably because I have to get back into a weekday routine…
I am a sleeper inner so I struggle with
the whole getting up early in the morning thing…
but not this Monday :-)
It’s a Holiday Monday!!!
All about the sleeping in,
the cookouts,
the food,
the campfires,
did I mention sleeping in?
(yes, I know I am pathetic)

I hope you all are enjoying your Memorial Day!
It is a great time to remember
what our service men have done for us!
We are so thankful for each and every
person that has spent time to give
s our freedom!!!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Donuts

Strawberry donuts made from a cake mix and dipped in chocolate frosting


1 strawberry cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
3 eggs
1/2 cup strawberries
1 container canned chocolate frosting


  1. Use fresh or frozen strawberries and smash into puree. If you are using frozen strawberries, thaw for a minute or 2 in the microwave. Drain the liquid and smash with a fork.
  2. Melt the ice cream in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Combine the oil, eggs, ice cream and strawberries in mixing bowl, add cake mix and beat for 1 minute on low and 2 minutes on medium. Spoon in about 1 teaspoon batter into a mini donut pan. (I found it worked better to fill a frosting bag and use a large frosting tip to pipe the batter in) Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool in pan about 4 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
  3. Remove the lid and foil from frosting. Heat in microwave for 1 minute…stirring every 30 seconds. Pour into a bowl and dip the tops of your donuts. Place on a wax paper lined tray and sprinkle with your favorite color sprinkle of the day.


After your frosting has set, you can slide a lollipop stick through the center and tie on a bow.

Memorial Day!

    Jocelyn, I’m a sleeper-inner too, and share your dislike for Mondays. Donuts, however, do make any morning more palpable. Your strawberry donuts sound scrumptious! Very cool technique with the berries and the ice cream!

    Have you ever tried the Wilton easy-pour funnel for filling the mini donut pan? It’s a great little tool.

    Thanks, as always, for linking up to “A Little Birdie Told Me..”!
