Glazed Chocolate Donut Holes

Did you hear the big news? Are you ready for this? Yup, Dunkin’ Donuts has arrived in Los Angeles! As soon as I heard this, I had to go by to their new Santa Monica outpost and celebrate along with hundreds of other donut and coffee obsessed east coast transplants.

I thought I had purchased enough chocolate donut holes to last me for at least a week, but boy was I wrong. I finished the last of the 2 dozen the next morning :/

So I pretty much was left with no choice but to bake them up myself. I did worry if I could replicate that same Dunkin’ Donuts Amazing-ness that they put into their donut holes, but I’m pretty happy with the outcome! I think my recipe yields about 20 holes. I confess I neglected to pay attention to the final yield because while the second batch was baking I had already begun eating the first batch.

I used a cake pop pan to bake the donut holes and they baked perfectly round and moist!

Voila! Glazed chocolate donut holes for the week!

Happy Baking you guys!
