I'm a little late, but here are a few Day of the Dead treat recipes: the donuts were easy but need the dipping sauce as they are a bit dry. As I've never had Mexican donuts, I don't know what they're supposed to be like, but they were yummy! I made a butter/cream cheese icing to dip them into, less messy for our party.
