A couple Sundays ago I has so much fun experimenting in the kitchen. I am still obsessed with my Donut pan by Wilton so I knew I wanted to make another fun baked donut 🙂
I had oodles of Halloween candy around which only meant one thing…..Reeses Peanut Butter Cup! One of my favorite candy bars ever!
This recipe is very similar to my Baked Pumpkin Ice Cream Donuts minus the pumpkin. I added smashed peanut butter cups right into the batter! Yum!
Reeses inside the donuts and on top 🙂
For the filling, mash up 3 fun size Reeeses Peanut Butter Cups.
This fabulous bowl of cups will go into your donut batter.
The consistency is soft, cakey and Reeses Peanut Butter Cup delicious!
Instead of the glaze on my Pumpkin Ice Cream Donuts, I went with a chocolate ganache. Simple.
Once your chips are melted add some heavy cream, stirring until melted and shiny.
Time to dip and top with more chopped peanut butter cups.
