Popping Candy Donuts


Is there anything more exciting than popping candy? How about popping candy and donuts? When I stumbled upon these tubes of “Festive Popping Candy” in the supermarket recently, I knew they would make the perfect Christmas-themed donut. The tart sweetness of the strawberry and apple flavoured popping candy contrasts well with the double chocolate donuts […]
