Luck of the Irish

Shamrock Donut

While we aren’t Irish, with a last name that sounds like “Shannon” we decided to join the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Lucky for you, these shamrock donuts are easy to make and delicious to eat!

Serves 12


  • 12 regular sized donuts
  • one can of store bought vanilla frosting
  • green food coloring
  • green writing icing


  • Take each donut and carve away pieces with a knife to form your desired shamrock shape
  • Lay the donuts on a wire rack with wax paper under the rack
  • Add green food coloring to 1/2 cup of vanilla frosting and melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds
  • Pour the green frosting on top of the donuts until they are covered
  • Once they are dry, use green writing icing to outline the outside of the shamrock

Serve and enjoy! These donuts are magically delicious!
