Mini Baked Donuts with Dark Chocolate Ganache

mini-choc-donuts

Donuts! Who doesn’t love donuts! I thought I’d try and make a “healthier” version by baking them in the oven instead of deep frying these little beauties, however my decision to coat them in a decadent dark chocolate ganache probably negated that.

This is my first foray into the world of Cake Pops, which are cake crumbled and mixed with icing, rolled into balls and then dipped in melted chocolate. I hate to waste food, and I had a lot of left over cake and icing from my Strawberry and Coconut Ombre Cakes. So cake pops were [...]
