Chocolate Chocolate Donut

Chocolate Chocolate Donut

Chocolate chocolate donuts are what the name says! A cakey chocolate donut topped with a chocolate ganache glaze and optionally, chopped pecans added on for the extra crunch!

If you were to ask me my least favorite doctor in the world, I would have to say the dentist. It’s ironic that I’m saying that because I’m posting a sweet donut post today, but I really do loathe the dentist. I don’t loathe my dentist on a personal level; he’s a great guy and we’ve been going to him since I was old enough to have to get my teeth cleaned, but I loathe the dentist on a general level. Like, if I never had to go, I’d be happy. Although, we all know why dental cleanings every 6 months is imperative. It’s all these darn sweet treats! ;)
