Who says you can’t have chocolate for every meal on Valentines Day. I wanted to share a fun Valentines Day Breakfast will surely warm the hearts of your Valentines Day. What would your family say if you served them some double Chocolate baked Donuts for Valentine’s Day Breakfast?
Doughnuts are always a special treat at our house and with Valentines Day being a Saturday this year, you will have some extra time to create these decadent breakfast treats. Don’t forget to purchase a donut pan before attempting this recipe.
Double Chocolate Baked Donuts
Making homemade Doughnuts is really not a hard process, especially when they are baked there is no oil mess. If you can make a cupcake you can make baked donuts.
What fun to include some yummy TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk to make them even more chocolatey. Chocolate Milk is a treat in our house and we love that TruMoo has no artificial growth hormones, no high fructose corn syrup and is fresh from your trusted dairy.
The kids also thought it had great Chocolate Marshmallow flavor!
How to Make Glaze for Baked Donuts
Now for the chocolate glaze. Be sure to sift your ingredients so you don’t have chunks of powdered sugar in your glaze.
Instead of plain milk or water we added TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk. Do you see where we are going with this Valentines Day Breakfast?
Adding Sprinkles to Doughnuts.
Have fun with this part. Dip each top of the doughnut into the chocolate glaze and add sprinkles. What are donuts without any sprinkles?
I know you will be tempted to dig right into your chocolate treats, but allow the glaze to harden before spreading out the chocolate breakfast treat.
I bet you can’t eat just one… well maybe you want to save your self for some Valentines Day Dessert. Finding the right balance between happy and healthy is never easy.
