Green Tea Chocolate Doughnut




















I can never resist anything with greentea :p  I am a green tea nut . I love the frosting of this green tea chocolate flavor on these soft and fluffy doughnuts.  Every bite gives you the taste of the green tea in the form of frosting that makes this doughnut different from others. And the drizzle of white chocolate on the frosting adds appeal to the doughnut.  The fragrant of the good quality green tea and the not overly sweet chocolatey frosting earned praises from friends.  I hope these delectable pieces will stir a desire in you to want to make these for your loved ones .The fusion of east and west...green tea and white chocolate...truly a great combo and it transforms a simple doughnut into a heavenly piece of goodness and every mouthful will have craving for another piece. A keeper for sure. A great snack to bring to parties. I had so much fun making these .Baking and cooking gives me great pleasure. Happiness and contendment is an expensive wealth so to say and I will continue to strive for it!
