Glazed Donut Hole Brownies

I know, there is no explaining my madness, I just wanted to try this idea. Let’s just say it was a good idea, lol! I do not recommend indulging this dessert on a regular basis, but oh baby if you are having a bad day or just need a good sweet treat, you have got to whip up a batch of these bad boys!

Yes, you heard me right, glazed donut holes 🙂

How to Make These Easy Brownies

Transfer those babies to a baking dish.

Pour your prepared brownie batter right on top 🙂

Time to bake!

How fabulous does this look?

Let cool and prepare the ganache.

Whip up a simple ganache over a double boiler.

Spread over top cooled brownies and go to town 🙂  Enjoy!

They are absolutely as good as they look.

If we are going donut holes and brownie you might as well add a scoop of ice cream right? xoxo

    You. Are. Killing. Me! Lol! I think I just gained a couple extra pounds just reading this!

    Alrighty, I’m back. Turned out wonderfully!! Well, the brownies that is… the ganache didn’t make it on the brownies… as the chocolate and cream didn’t really make it to ganache… more like a firm, seized clump of chocolate… both of my two attempts.

  4. Nikki

    In the oven now! I am leery about the fact that there did not seem to be much brownie batter for this size of pan, but we’ll see – I’ll be back to review!

  5. Nikki

    Yippee! I’m buying the Timbits (Tim Hortons’ donut holes) today!! I am doing a whole bunch of baking for my mom and her friends for various things, and I knew this one had to be in the mix when I saw it!! Will let you know how they turn out!

    You simply slay me Jenny!! I mean, who would have thunk it? Donut holes & brownies!! Wonderful idea!!! I am making brownies for the 4th of July. What is your all-time favorite brownie recipe? Anyone of your fabulous creations stand out to be your favorite? I really want to knock the socks off my friends/family with an amazing brownie. You have so many wonderful choices to pick from…and they all look so good!! I can’t decide which one to make!! Help!!

    I made these tonight for our Sunday School class tomorrow and they are AMAZING!!! They have haunted me ever since I saw this recipe and HAD to make them. LOVE THEM!!

    Made these for work today, my co-workers liked them although some said they were a bit sweet. I may try using reguar cake donut holes next time! Thanks for the recipe.

    I made these last night for some friends. I was trying to think of a quick and easy dessert and remembered this recipe. I used the 8×8 brownie mix and there didn’t seem like there was enough batter to cover all the donut holes. I took a spoon and scooped up brownie mix from areas that weren’t covering the donuts and made sure they were all covered in brownie mix. Baked it according to brownie directions and it came out looking exactly like your picture. The ganache part, one cup of chocolate chips didn’t seem to be enough to cover the whole brownie pan, I wish I used more. Maybe my chocolate was old because it wasn’t “runny” it was kind of clumpy and the cream made the chocolate harden a bit, so I had to melt it some more. So when I spread it on the brownies – I really had to work to cover the entire pan. The ganache wasn’t pretty, but the brownies were a hit!!! So funny how simple the recipe is and how incredibly good they were. Thank you for the recipe!

    I am so going to try making these! Donuts are totally my BFFs and what a unique way to enjoy them ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Marie in Va

    These look fabulous! Can’t wait to make them!
    When you make these in a 9×13 pan–does the recipe need to be doubled?

  12. Jennifer Haigh

    just made them and tried them….YUM. Store didn’t have glazed donut holes so bought regular glazed donuts and cut them up.

  13. MikeVFMK

    It`s like timbits (our famous coffee house small donuts) and brownies and donuts and heaven wrapped into a dessert guaranteed to give you a sugar rush and a smile and memory. Just looking at these has me craving a slice or four. Sooo good Jenny!

    I made these for work and everyone loved them! I used Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate brownie mix. I made two 8×8 pans and used one box mix for each. I used just one box of Entemann’s holes. I had to bake them about twice as long as the package said. I did not make a ganache but sprinkled on some Hershey’s dark chocolate chips when the brownies were done and put the pans back in the oven for the chips to melt. The BEST thing I did was to make the in the morning and bringing them in warm from the oven! The donut holes were definitely a surprise for everyone. I will make these again.

  18. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    I commend you for your self control to not just scarf down the whole box of plain donut holes! These look incredible.

  19. Karen @ Sugartown Sweets
