Decadent cake donuts dipped in creamy chocolate poured glaze and coated with delicious crushed Butterfinger bites make these Butterfinger Donut Holes a great popable treat!
Honestly, I thought it would be awhile before I shared another donut recipe with you. But do these really qualify as donuts? I mean there more of a little ball of delicious goodness.
Technically donuts are delicious goodness as well, and they are qualified as hand-held to…oh heck, I just can’t help myself. You guy’s know my love of donuts thus far, can’t stop, wont stop is all I can say to that.
But for real, these babies are EPIC. I mean EEEPPPPIIIICCCC. I know it’s the Pringles slogan, but it should be for these, because once you pop, you can’t stop. They are so addicting.
If the word Butterfinger doesn’t do it for you, how about poured chocolate glaze. Like the kind that they use on Texas Sheet Cake. Yup, these have it.
Oh and did I mention that they are baked, and no special equipment needed? Sure if you have a donut hold maker, by all means, use it. But these Donut Holes can be made in a mini muffin tin!
How simple is that? I mean, you have to go make them now. What is stopping you? I should say willpower to not eat all in one sitting, but that all but went out the window when these things made an appearance. I was doing so good too!
These come in an easy 4 step process, bake, dip, toss, DEVOUR. I suppose you could let them set up for a bit, but trust me, it’s hard. Like really hard. So if you are trying to watch your weight, maybe this post isn’t for you…but that’s what they call a cheat day right? No? That’s just something I do? Whoops….
Any who, 3 words to end this rant for you…GO, MAKE, NOW…oh and save some for me.
