Eats // The best heart shaped donuts you’ll ever have.

This might be a chubby thing to say, but honestly, can you think of a day that wouldn’t be a good day for donuts? I couldn’t either. As a result, I took it upon myself to update the everyday deliciousness that is donuts, and turned them into cute bite-sized treats perfect for this upcoming Valentine’s day (or any other day). I made them using the best homemade donuts you’ll ever have recipe from A Cup of Jo, and a really simple colored glaze for dipping.

To make the heart shapes, chill the donut dough in the fridge for about an hour. Once it’s chilled firm, roll and cut heart shapes from the dough using a cookie cutter on a lightly floured cutting board. I had the best success with the hearts keeping their shape when frying by exaggerating the heart shape dough a bit with my hands, and then popping the cut-outs in the fridge for a few more minutes before cooking them.

Ingredients for the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • Pink food coloring
  • Sprinkles

Combine milk and vanilla in a medium saucepan and heat over low heat until warm. Sift confectioners’ sugar into milk mixture. Whisk slowly, until well combined. Remove the glaze from the heat and set over a bowl of warm water. Dip doughnuts into the glaze, one at a time, and then place them on wax paper to set.

    Sugar also contributes to the moistness of desserts and their tenderness. The flour or starch component in most desserts serves as a protein and gives the dessert structure. Different flours such as All-Purpose Flour or Pastry Flour provide a less rigid gluten network and therefore a different texture. Along with flour desserts may contain a dairy product.,`
