Chocolate Toasted Coconut Donuts 4

These donuts pack a soft, cake like donut texture! They have a deep chocolate flavor and a sweet coconut top that just sent my taste buds spiraling out of control! These are definitely one for the books! I ate mine as a snack with a big bowl of greek yogurt! (donuts can be considered a snack, right? ;))

  • Donuts are totally holiday food! (And a legit snack...) At least if you cover 'em with coconut. It's just like snow, right?
