Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s just came out with the new, limited time treat, the Froot Loop Donuts and we followed our nose right to the drive-through.  After taste testing it was our mission to come up with a copycat recipe that you can make at home.  The most difficult part of this recipe was creating the “All Natural Fruit Flavor” but we think we’ve done it and now you can make your own mini or normal size Froot Loop flavored donuts at your home.
