Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts w/ Peanut Butter Glaze


Whew!  It's been crazy busy in this neck of the woods these past couple of weeks.  Between trying to do some Christmas shopping, celebrating Thanksgiving twice, decorating for Christmas, packing for vacation, going on vacation, unpacking from vacation, doing some more Christmas shopping and taking pictures of the kids for our Christmas cards, I have not had much time to sit.  So now that I have a little time, I wanted to post another donut recipe I made before all the hoopla took place.  Averie from http://www.loveveggiesandyoga.com/ said I should try her donut recipes, so I chose to try the Peanut Butter Chocolate ones.  I love chocolate and peanut butter together.  These little gems satisfy my craving without feeling guilty.  They are so light and fluffy, they don't feel like a brick on your stomach like regular fried donuts.  I am really getting some use out of my babycakes machine.

Peanut Butter Glaze
by loves veggies and yoga

Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk
Cooking Directions
  1. Mix the melted butter and peanut butter. Then add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  2. Slowly add the water or milk, one teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is achieved.


For some reason I am having trouble getting the glaze to adhere to the donuts, so I end up having to make the recipe a little thincker and put it on as more of a frosting.  I wonder if the machine gives the donuts a slicker finish than if I baked them in the oven?  I guess I will find out when I finally get to buy my pans.  Maybe Santa will bring me some for Christmas.
