I’m not going to lie, this was an epic fail. Hang on, stay with me. The recipe wasn’t a fail, in fact it was amazing. But my idea of these perfect bat like donut holes, was merely a fantasy. When I came up with the idea, I thought it was genius. However, somewhere in my 2 attempts to achieve perfection, I went miserably wrong.
Because I’m such a perfectionist, this would have normally bothered me. I would have made them a million times until I got it right. But after assembling over 2 dozen bats, I called it quits. Covered in icing and Oreo crumbs, I sat on the floor defeated, wondering my next step. Then my 7-year-old walked in grinning from ear to ear yelling “these are the coolest things I’ve ever seen mom.”
In that moment, I realized that it’s ok to not be perfect. Although they may look mediocre to me, to my son they were incredible. So, he grabbed a bat for me, and a bat for himself and we indulged in the perfectly imperfect treat.
Maybe the appearance of these little guys didn’t turn out like I had planned, but they were delicious and I enjoyed them in good company. So needless to say, B and all his little friends enjoyed their spooky treats. And as far as the other 50 donuts, lets just say we’ll have plenty of snacks during our drive to Michigan.
This recipe was so easy, and they taste just like store-bought donuts. Actually, they taste better than store-bought donuts and they’re healthier for you too!
All you need is:
2 c Dark Chocolate Kodiak Flapjack Mix
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/2 c light brown sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 Greek yogurt
3/4 c milk
1/4 c butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients together. Then, in a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Next, combine the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients, mixing well.
Using a greased mini cupcake pan, fill each hole about 3/4 full. Bake in oven for approximately 10 minutes. Let cool completely. In the meantime, combine all ingredients for the glaze. Dunk each cooled donut in the glaze using a fork or your fingers. Placed glazed donuts on cooling rack until the glaze is set. Enjoy!
