Peanut butter frosting is spread all over a baked chocolate donut, resulting in the most amazing breakfast ever! Sweet & salty and totally delicious!
Ohh it is a good morning at Chez CateyLou. A great morning in fact. And that is because I have the best donuts I have made thus far to share with you. That’s right, the best. And I have made a lot of donuts since I bought my little pan back in the fall. The name says it all – chocolate donuts with peanut butter frosting.
If you are a chocolate peanut butter lover, then you are going to agree that these donuts are insanely delicious! And also that they really are dessert and not breakfast. But anything goes on Saturday mornings in our house.
So why are these the best? Peanut butter frosting spread all over a baked chocolate donut – need I say more? These are literally TheBetterHalf’s dream come true. He is the world’s biggest chocolate peanut butter fan, and has been begging me to make a donut with peanut butter frosting for months now. And I finally (happily) obliged. Luckily, these lived up to his standards.
They are seriously SO good. A moist and chocolatey baked donut is topped with sweet and creamy peanut butter frosting. The frosting has a touch of salt in it for that addicting sweet and salty taste. And then the topping game begins, which is so much fun! As a choco pb lover, I happen to have tons of peanut butter goodies on hand at all times (mini reese’s, reese’s pieces, peanut butter chips…), so I went crazy decorating these! But if you don’t have a ton of pb accessories, you can use sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or even leave these plain. They will still taste amazing.
In addition to tasting absolutely amazing, these donuts will instantly put you in a good mood. I mean just look at these chocolate donuts with peanut butter frosting and try not to smile. I don’t think it is possible! They are so fun and happy!
I will say that these are rich! If they are actually breakfast rather than dessert is definitely debatable. But I think that all donuts are really just cupcakes disguised as breakfast. These just happen to be extra rich cupcakes (thanks to the peanut butter frosting) disguised as breakfast. Nothing wrong with that. Because really, what are weekend mornings for? Indulging a little bit and relaxing. Then you can workout later 🙂
If you are a chocolate peanut butter lover, I have some great recipes for you!
