So I found the cutest little leaf sprinkles at Michaels Craft store the other day and knew I had to use them for something. Donuts would be perfect, right?!  These donuts are seriously the easiest thing to make, all you really need is a can of pumpkin and cake mix. The spice cake mix is great because it provides those delicious fall flavors and is perfect with the pumpkin.

To help get the pumpkin mixture in the donut pan, I put the mixture in a gallon size Ziploc bag and cut the tip off one of the corners.

Topping off the donut with the frosting. If I didn’t have to take a picture of these beauties, I would probably be dipping the whole donut in the bowl.
