Combine creamy, smooth and chocolatey Nutella with a homemade donut and there will be smiles all around. Nutella will do that on it’s own really! I’ve snuck a spoonful or two of Nutella before as a midnight snack so covering a donut with it just came natural.
Donuts are very often fried, but breaking out the deep fryer isn’t always the most fun when it comes to cleanup. These baked donuts are easier and quicker, and even a bit healthier than the fried variety.
Topped with peanuts (as shown) or pick your own toppings, such as hazelnuts, crushed Oreos, sprinkles or even plain, these baked donuts are wonderfully delicious. Don’t forget the milk!
We all like donuts! Especially donuts with NUTELLA! These donuts are easier and quicker than fried donuts because they are baked, not fried. We topped them with nuts, but let the kids join in and top them the way you like.
