When I was getting ready to throw this awesome Coffee and Donut Party (I took a break from getting it set up to have a bite, that’s why you see all that pink and orange in the background of my photos…I’m throwing the party Thursday and you’ll get the details Friday! EEP!), I was wracking my brain for some idea to make dunking a donut more fun. And like a lightbulb, there was a moment of pure silliness that I just couldn’t ignore. I had to make Donut Mugs. Yes, you heard me right. A Donut. Mug. Heh.
So, I went ahead and munched on one…it was quite the fun snack. And because I love donuts so much, it was the perfect size. Because, you know, they’re one of those things you can’t just eat one of. So, pardon me, I have to go wipe glaze off my face now. Heh.
What You Need to Make Donut Mugs
- 12 glazed donuts
- 1 cup white chocolate
- 1 cup mini-marshmallows
How to Make Donut Mugs
- Place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, then microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between, until the chocolate is melted smooth.
- Cut 2 of the donuts in half. Set aside.
- Make sure you have the donuts on a flat surface to work on. I recommend using parchment paper under the donuts, just to alleviate any potential stickage.
- Spoon some white chocolate on top of one of the donuts, then stack another donut on top.
- Repeat twice, setting aside all of the stacked donuts.
- In the top of a non-chocolate-ized donut, spoon chocolate into the hole, covering the hole completely.
- Drop marshmallows on top of the choclate-filled hole and pat it down enough that they stay.
- Place all of the chocolatey donuts in the fridge for approximately 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
- Remove the donuts from the fridge.
- Spoon white chocolate on top of one of the stacked set of donuts, then place one of the hole-filled donuts on top.
- Repeat with all of the stacked sets and hole-filled donuts.
- Spoon chocolate onto the ends of one of the cut donuts, affixing both ends to the side of one of the stacked set of donuts.
- Repeat until all of the donut mugs have handles.
- Place all of the donuts in the fridge for 10 more minutes to get that chocolate to harden.
- Ok, you can warm it up in the microwave for just a second, if you don’t want cold donuts. But, frankly, I don’t care. A donut is a donut is a donut and I love it.
