Keeping up with tradition, this year I’ve got the hair and makeup need-to-know for a DIY perfectly spooky Miss Peregrine from Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home of Peculiar Children.

Death by Chocolate Donuts Recipe

Dessert Recipes

Chocolate is the perfect gift. Had a bad day? Have some chocolate. It’s your friend’s birthday? Give her some chocolate. It’s Wednesday afternoon? Chocolate. See? Easy mathematics if you ask me. I personally only have chocolate on certain occasions due to the crippling migraine effects it can have on me, but the look on other people’s faces i.e. my husband’s when he eats a Reese’s peanut butter cup, is just priceless. I recently made these donuts for another chocolate obsessed friend of mine for her birthday and they were a big hit! Got 20 minutes and a handful of ingredients? Skip the store bought and impress your friends and family with your homemade donuts. Death by Chocolate Donuts Recipe Makes 9 Donuts: 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 1/3 cup cocoa powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda pinch of salt 2 tbsp. melted butter 1 egg, room temperature 1/4 cup packed dark brown … Read More
