Green Tea Chocolate Doughnut



I still have not got over this doughnut craze yet, I love the frosting of this green tea chocolate flavor on soft fluffy doughnut. Every bite was tasty with gloriously smooth green tea chocolate frosting that makes this doughnut different from others. The aroma of good quality green tea and the not overly sweet chocolatey frosting earned praises from the Piggies. As promised , I have posted up these delectable pieces for virtual drooling...please don't blame me for enticing you with these food pornography...it will definitely have you entranced  :) 
Seriously, I have yet to taste anything so delicious. 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 your eyes.rolling. backwards.into.head. This is a keeper for sure. A great dessert to bring for pot luck parties. I had so much fun making these and my heart was filled with a happy and satisfied contentment!

don't worry...it is not overly sweet...perfect for a 
person who does not have a sweet tooth :)
