I have been itching to make some donuts or donut holes for the mornings. Everyone has to get up to go to school or work since I only have time for my coffee I like to make things like this Baked Apple Spice Donut Holes recipe the night before. I had to put off making them for two days because I’m picky when it comes to my coffee, especially when pairing it with something like Apple Spice Donut Holes. I need the right kind of coffee; I need my favorite flavor os Dunkin’ Donuts® Chocolate Glazed Donut Coffee. I don’t have to have it, but I just love how it taste, all the time, day or night lol. It’s good stuff!
While I was at Walmart, I couldn’t help but grab some Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee for myself, but then I started thinking about my sister, how she just started her new job, and how much she loves coffee. Yes, that will be the perfect gift idea for her. There are so many morning she calls me and asks me to bring her coffee because she doesn’t have time to make it before she leaves, but I know she would make time if she had some of her favorite Dunkin’ Donuts® Cinnamon Bun or Caramel Coffee Cake Coffee at the house. Don’t you know I couldn’t leave the store without grabbing myself Dunkin’ Donuts® Hazelnut K-Cups & Dunkin’ Donuts® Chocolate Glazed Donut, which you have to try if you haven’t already.

The Baked Apple Spice Donut Holes recipe sounds pretty awesome, right? I love it, but you have to imagine it with a warm cup of Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee, any flavor will do but you already know Dunkin’ Donuts® Chocolate Glaze Coffee is my favorite. I fell in love after I was asked to try it and write about it on another campaign a while back.
I decided to put some of her favorite flavors of Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee, a football cup because well it’s that time of year and we’re a football family, and her favorite dark chocolate covered pretzels.
Looks pretty good, right? I love it and most importantly I know my sister will not only love it but use it to start her day off right. She has everything she needs and even a fun little snack that she enjoys with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. She also needs a few extra K-cups to take to work. It’s the perfect gift basket for her! Oh, and don’t forget about the football cup she’ll likely take to work and show off lol.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
The dark chocolate covered pretzels are so easy to make all you need is the dark chocolate chips and pretzels. Just dip the pretzels into melted dark chocolate, place on wax paper and allow to try
You can give it a 2nd dipping if you like; I did on these because they’re special for my sister.
I hope you enjoy the Baked Apple Spice Donut Holes Recipe, Dark Chocolate Pretzels, and find some inspiration in our Coffee Drinkers Gift Basket! If anything, take the morning off, make you something yummy for breakfast/brunch and enjoy a cup of Dunkin Donuts Coffee.
If you haven’t tried it and Chocolate Glazed Donuts sound amazing be sure to grab Dunkin’ Donuts® to Chocolate Glazed Donut Coffee the next time you’re at Walmart! I know, I just LOVE Dunkin’ Donuts® Chocolate Glazed Donut, by far my favorite flavor of coffee ever!
