The weather has officially turned chilly around here. The furnace is on and the cars are covered in frost. My winter hibernation has officially begun.

It’s funny how when you live in a neighborhood filled with families, we all sort of disappear in the winter. And suddenly, emerging in the spring we look at each other oddly. Everyone’s kids look older and unrecognizable. It’s truly a hibernation.

This year, I’m ready. My fridge is stocked with BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers, which helps not only in my coffee but in my baking. Often times when I run out of milk (and yes, that happens often in a house with 6 people), I substitute coffee creamer in my recipes. You’ll find me doing that often here on the blog. Using my favorite coffee creamer in recipes (you can find some of them here). Maybe some of these neighbors will want to stop by for a steaming cup of coffee and a batch of donuts this year!

Every year BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers puts out their new flavors and this year I’m sort of (okay a lot of) in love with the BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamer White Chocolate Peppermint Bark.

It’s not only fantastic in recipes, but it’s delicious in coffee and hot cocoa too! Make sure you have some on hand for those upcoming holiday parties!

For today’s recipe, I made some moist, decadent chocolate donuts. I baked them in a donut pan (which you can find at your local stores) and then added some glaze on top! It doesn’t get much better than a chocolate donut with peppermint candy for breakfast, haha!! It’s also a great afternoon treat. Curl up by the fireplace with a good book, a cup of joe and one of these donuts.

My question is….are you a dunker? Would you dip this in your coffee? Tea? Cocoa? These are so moist they don’t NEED to be dunked, but out of habit I do it anyway! ENJOY!

Chocolate Peppermint Donuts

Yield: 10 donuts

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 11-13 minutes

Ingredients:

For the donuts:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamer White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

For the glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 Tbsp BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamer White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
  • 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candy

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F. Spray donut pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well then add in eggs, coffee creamer and melted butter. Beat for 1-2 minutes until smooth (batter will be very thick).
  3. Spoon batter in a large resealable plastic bag and snip off the corner. Pipe into greased donut pans (filling each cavity about 1/2 full). Bake for 11-13 minutes, until donuts spring back when touched.
  4. Remove from oven and cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely before adding glaze.
  5. While the donuts are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar and coffee creamer until smooth. Dip tops of cooled donuts into glaze and allow to set on parchment paper. Sprinkle immediately with crushed peppermint.
  6. ENJOY!

  2. I’m not a donut dunker, but you can be sure I’ll be devouring these donuts with my morning coffee! Love the flavors- peppermint and chocolate for the win!

  4. Aimee,  these donuts look so fabulous! I think I’m finally going to have to buy a donut pan! I love that these are baked 😉

  5. That creamer is delish and in donuts? EVEN BETTER. Bring on winter if it means peppermint all the things!

    It’s so true.  After every winter, my neighbor asks me where I’ve been. Inside, chica! It was cold!
    These are gorgeous, Aimee! All snowy on top, glaze-wise. Fantastic!
