For a girly afternoon – I had my sweetheart’s mom and his aunt coming to visit me – I needed some treats for them. I don’t like to have friends or relatives coming over and nothing to offer. I am from Italy and we always prepare coffee (or tea) and have some sweets.
So: what is fast, not too ‘crumbling’ and they would like for sure? Something with chocolate obviously. And as I have a new donut pan, I decided to do some chocolate donuts. I found a recipe to try on Mommy Potamus, one of the blogs I follow. They looked good and easy on the photos. Let’s try though!
Of course, I changed the recipe – like I always do – and omit the coconut extract. So the taste had no coconut in it, just chocolate. They came out super light, not too sweet and they were finished before the girls left. Next time maybe I will do them with real chocolate instead of cocoa.
For a finishing I covered the top with dark chocolate (at least 85 %) and dipped them in coconut sugar. Some I put some white chocolate on the top. They are light, yummy and are great for a last-minute treat to prepare.
