Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

Homemade Pretzel Donuts dipped in a rich Chocolate Glaze and finished with pretzels, sprinkles, and anything else I could find.

Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

Trashed-up desserts are a thing and always have been. It’s what happens when you make something utterly delicious but then can’t stop adding a whole bunch of other yummy ingredients to set it over the top. And it totally works. It’s a sweet treat you feel somewhat guilty indulging in, but you can’t and don’t really want to stop.

And to be totally honest, these are the kind of recipes that I love sharing with you the most. I am ridiculously giddy and excited about this one.

Trashed Up Pretzel Donuts

First of all, any day on which I get to talk about donuts can’t turn out to be anything but fabulous. Secondly, I combined my favorite treat of all time, donuts, with a savory favorite, pretzels, and am now able to enjoy both of them at the same time. I know! Even though it took me quite a few years to think of this combo, I am so, so overjoyed that I finally did.

Well, hello there, Friday! I had to check my calendar twice today. Can’t believe the weekend is already here, which is, of course, a fabulous thing. And it just so happens that we’re talking donuts today. It was meant to be!

Not that I actually wait until the weekend to enjoy a donut or two. Every day is more than appropriate to savor one of my all time faves ;). But celebrating the weekend makes it that much more special.

Also, a recipe that delivers on flavor, brings back memories and all those happy feelings without a whole lot of work deserves a special spotlight. There’re no scary yeasty experiments happening here. No long waiting time and minimal donut making skills required as well. A great one for beginners and experienced donut lovers alike.

Hello Everyone!

I just realized that Wednesday is October 1st. I had to take a second look at my calendar because in my mind it was still September 20th or something like that. This month has flown by. Boom. Over. Maybe I was so surprised because we were blessed with amazing weather these last couple of days. 3 days of 80-degree weather in a row is almost too good to be true. It felt like summer was back in full swing and I loved it.

And the only thing that could put me into an even better mood, was a fresh Waffle Donut in my hand. 15 minutes later I was dunking my first one into luscious chocolate and felt sooo many happy feelings all at the same time.

Sprinkles were inevitable, of course. Waffle Donuts or “Wonuts” are a thing, you guys. And you should definitely make them. [Read more…]

French Crullers aka my favorite donuts of all time are back. And this time bursting with fall flavors and dripping with a finger-licking glaze.

It had to be done. Saturday morning was the picture-perfect fall day. The sun was shining in all its brilliance, crisp air smelled wonderful, and I was holding a freshly steeped cup of tea. The only thing missing… a donut, of course. My sweet hubby didn’t have to ask twice to hold one of them in his hands.

Oh, I should probably stop and apologize for already having two recipes with the words pumpkin spice on here. This early in the season. And in a row. Sawy! I seriously wasn’t planning any of this, but it happened, and it was absolutely dreamy. Can’t get enough! A fair warning – we have only just begun, but I’ll make sure to have lots of variety for you guys in the next couple of weeks as well.

Will you indulge me for another couple of minutes though? I promise it’s worth it ;). [Read more…]

As I am typing this post, we are getting ready for a road trip to Kansas, helping my brother-in-law move. I just love a good road trip and can’t wait see what this weekend has in store for us, even though there’s a little bit of work involved, ha.

Since our MN summer has been lacking the hot temperatures that are normal for this time of year, I am beyond elated to be heading somewhere hot and humid. While temperatures in the high 70’s make for a comfortable summer for most people, the summer lover in me cannot wait to finally break a sweat.

One good thing about the “low” temps is that I haven’t had a reason not to turn on my oven. I’ve been happily baking away lately. Eating sweet treats and going for a run in gorgeous weather…. does it get much better than this?

Actually, yes. Eating doughnuts without having to work out would be even more amazing, but we’re talking about reality here. There’s no greater motivator than finishing my run when these fluffy doughnuts of wonderfulness are awaiting me. It’s the biggest reason why I work out.
