Plus, they’re so easy to make! To get started, whisk all the ingredients together, and spoon them into 4-6 generously greased donut molds. Then, bake them for 12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and let them cool.

In the meantime, whisk together your glaze using a small saucepan over medium-low heat. If you feel like this step is taking awhile, don’t worry! You’re doing it right. To get the glaze perfect, it will take 10-15 minutes. It’s so worth it, though.

Now, add the gooey deliciousness to the top of your donuts (10/10 recommend licking the spoon). I topped mine with a crushed up Emmy’s Organics vanilla cookie, and I highly suggest you do the same. You do you, though. Regardless, enjoy!
