These strawberry glazed donut bites were created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
I love making itty bitty desserts! Today’s little poppables were inspired by my equally yummy apple cinnamon mini donuts. There’s just something about the tiny size and the ease of making them in a mini muffin pan that totally appeals to me.
So darn cute!
I was also inspired by the goodies I received from Adam’s Extracts, especially the imitation strawberry extract and that’s how the strawberry glaze came to be. Once the minis had cooled, I dunked them in a strawberry glaze.
And that’s actually where I intended to stop – with them drip-drying on the cooling rack.
But then I started thinking how yummy and cute they’d look if I rolled them in coconut. And strawberry and coconut work together beautifully, so I rolled the rest of them in coconut. (Tip: Make sure you’re using fresh coconut. Stale coconut is the worst.)
And voila! Strawberry glazed donut bites sprinkled in coconut!
You can roll the entire thing or just dip the top in the coconut. Or heck, if you’re not a coconut fan, skip that part entirely.
I made some of each!
