S’mores Donuts

Welcome to S’mores week here on Chocolate Covered Cheetah! I’ve got a bunch of new S’mores recipes to share with you along with a roundup of S’mores recipes I’ve found around the internet. This is all in honor of National S’mores Day on Thursday! First up are these S’more Donuts! They are a baked speculoos donut topped with marshmallow glaze, mini chocolate chips and crushed graham cracker – Yum! 

Speculoos is a spread similar to peanut butter made with Biscoff cookies, you probably know it as cookie butter and it is most popularly associated with Trader Joe’s. They have Speculoos flavored EVERYTHING… seriously, they have speculoos cream cheese! The flavor is similar to a graham cracker so you will see it popping up in my S’mores recipes throughout the week! 

S’mores are always a fan favorite and evoke memories of childhood and summertime. So why not eat them for breakfast πŸ˜‰ I’m not sure when or who decided that a donut could fall under an appropriate food choice for breakfast, but someone did and here we are making S’mores Donuts! 

Aside from the marshmallow glaze being a bit messy, this recipe is pretty easy and another fun one if you have kids that like to help in the kitchen!
