Just in time for Christmas! Dreamy chocolate donuts topped with a crunchy, minty candy cane icing! These are the perfect treat to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve!
Hello everyone! It’s been a while! Yup, my first recipe of 2018 is coming right at the end.. For those of you that didn’t know, I took a break from SLC for an entire year! More about that can be found here. I am glad to be back and I’m ready to head full force into Christmas baking!
Since I departed with a donut recipe this time last year, we are going to start things back up with donuts, cause well, I love donuts. This recipe is super simple (cause Lord knows everyone needs a little more simple in their lives this time of year) and is a delicious break from (or addition to) the typical Christmas cookies and cakes and other holiday treats tempting you at every move.
Plus, everyone has collected like 47936 candy canes in the past month anyways, right? Nothin’ screams CHRISTTTMAAAS more than a good old cane cane. Might as well put em’ to use. You could always get the crushed variety of candy cane from somewhere like the sacred land of Bulk Barn, or you can be like me and showcase your aggression by crushing them yourself. The latter is definitely more enjoyable ;). A food processor or blunt force trauma both achieve desirable results.
And there’s not much more to it.. bake them donuts, coat them donuts in minty glaze, and dunk them donuts into your crushed ‘canes. Das it. The real Christmas miracle here is whether or not these donuts will last until Santa’s arrival.
Merry Christmas and enjoy, friends!
