    Colorful and tasty for the Holidays; this Krispy Cream Donut knock of recipe is pretty good. I don’t think it’s exactly the same but pretty close. It’s been a long time since I made donuts so I decided to make some up, and add some Christmas color. I have been making a lot more sweet treats than usual; time to cut it back before I gain 20 lbs over the Holidays. This Krispy Cream Donut recipe is a simple recipe, but it is time consuming due to the time needed for the dough to rise. I think you could help yourself out a bunch with this if you used a Bread Machine to make the dough. Why I didn’t think of that till now I don’t know; getting old I guess. Enjoy
