Mini Olympic Baked Donuts

Olympic Mini Donuts with Sprinkles
Pin it

If you love sprinkles, then today you will be in heaven since we are sharing these Mini Olympic Baked Donuts with colorful sprinkles (everything is more fun with them, right?)  They are just in time for planning a fun treat while we cheer on Team USA!  I'm getting pretty excited to see the opening ceremony and then watching some of my favorite sports.  I can't decide what games I like better summer or winter as each has some great events.  A couple of my favorites for now are beach volleyball and gymnastics.  Go Team USA!

What it your favorite sport to watch?  Do any make you nervous to watch?  For me it has to be skiing - just seeing how fast it is and no room for error, really gets me on edge and I'm not the one doing it!  If they had an Olympic sport for reading, I would be really good at that!  I could just sit in a chair and out read everyone else.  There you have it - a new sport for the most unsporty person - me!  Or shopping, I could be good at that too :)  I could do the shop til you drop which I've already done a few times around the holiday season.

I have a little connection to the Olympics  - in 1996 on June 1 (Day 36) the torch made its way through our town.  I remember taking my older daughter Kristina to see it.  It was a rainy day but the streets were lined up to see this once in a lifetime event.  Also, I've skied on a Olympic mountain - Lake Placid in upstate NY when I was younger - not saying how young.  It was quite the experience but no black diamonds for me.  Though I was better than just being on the bunny slope.

This year as a pure spectator, I'll be cheering on our teams and popping a few of these mini donuts - they are small so you can have one of each color and not feel guilty!
