Malted Chocolate Mini Donut

Malted Chocolate Mini Donut

Hello readers!

I hope you had a great week! Today we have donuts to kick off the long weekend (it’s Quebec’s National Holiday on Monday). I’m a big fan of malted chocolate (Whoppers/Maltesers, yes please!) and each recipe including malted milk powder I’ve made so far have been a huge success! These donuts are no exception. Baked donut are just as good as fried ones and much more healthy (or let’s say less unhealthy!). These donuts are very moist and light. And the icing is super chocolatey and delicious. I’m so biased here, sorry 😉
