Rich chocolate cake donuts dunked in a delicious chocolate glaze. You are going to need a big glass of milk!
Grab your sweetie and a glass of cold milk, because these Double Chocolate Baked Donuts will have you falling in love!
I am what you call sappy. I love everything about romance and love. I guess you could say I love LOVE. Valentine’s Day has been my favorite holiday my whole life. Most kids couldn’t wait for Santa, I couldn’t wait to design my Valentine box to hold all of those cards from my friends.
Conversation hearts, heart shaped boxes of chocolate, heart shaped doilies, I love it all.
Dunk them in glaze, sprinkle them with sprinkles and let them cool on your baking rack.
When I discovered this recipe, it was before Christmas. I decided to tuck it away, and use it for my first Valentine post of 2016. I mean what screams Valentine’s Day more than chocolate and heart shaped sprinkles?
Bake some of these up for your sweetie — or your sweeties (kiddos) — they are sure to feel the LOVE!
