Chocolate Chip Mini Donuts

Before we get started I wanted to tell you about an bake sale going on over at The Spiffy Cookie today.  I am making my Malt Double Chocolate Chip Cookies!  Trust me, you want to check it out.

Ok, now onto these “Donuts”.  I am jealous of every one of you out there with a donut pan.  You know who you are, posting about Cookie Dough Donuts, Chocolate Cake Donuts, Key Lime Donuts…it just never ends!  I can’t justify just buying a donut pan, and even if I could, the store I was at the other day didn’t have them.

So, what is a girl to do?  Turn to my mini muffin pan, and make mini “donuts”!  Yeah, I know they look nothing like donuts.  They couldn’t even pass for donut holes, but I don’t care.   If I didn’t over fill the pan, they might be able to pass for donut holes cousin?  No?  Who cares, they taste the same!  Just go with me here!  For all of you without a donut pan, there is hope!

The final straw was when I saw this recipe by Lindsay.  I just couldn’t stay quiet any longer.  Her’s are real donuts, with a gorgeous glaze.  I wasn’t sure how mine were going to work, so I just used chocolate frosting.  Next time….glaze!!
