Chocolate Mocha Frosted Donuts

There’s no need to hit the bakery when you can make these Chocolate Mocha Frosted Donuts at home in just minutes.  Use International Delight Sweet and Creamy Light Mocha Iced Coffee to make the the chocolaty-glaze that takes these baked chocolate donuts up a notch!

So, summer is officially over for us here.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s still in the 90’s (ugh) and we’re hitting the pool this weekend, but it was back to school for us this week.  While I’ve been crying into my morning coffee, Doodle is pretty pleased with his new second-grader status:

So, to cheer myself up and to make a special back-to-school breakfast, we made donuts.  Specifically, these Chocolate Mocha Frosted Baked Donuts.  So good, so easy, so chocolaty…and not as heavy on the calorie-count as those from the donut shop.

Especially not when you use International Delight Light Mocha Iced Coffee in the glaze.

But I’ll be honest, when I “sampled” this iced coffee prior to making the donuts, I just about sampled my way to an empty carton.

There's no need to hit the bakery when you can make these Chocolate Mocha Frosted Donuts at home in just minutes.

Anyone who knows me knows my love of coffee, so when I had the opportunity to create a summer treat with International Delight’s iced coffees…well, I was pretty much in coffee-flavored baked goods heaven.

Have you tried these iced coffees yet?  My parents – coffee lovers like me, but not ones to drink iced coffees – raved over this drink when they happened to stop by over the weekend during this photo shoot.

For this recipe, I used my trusty donut pan – if you don’t have one of these bad boys, I highly recommend getting one.  It really only takes a few minutes to mix up your own donut batter, and you can a better-for-you version of bakery style donuts right at home.

Get in my face.

 

Chocolate Mocha Frosted Donuts

Chocolate Mocha Frosted Donuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the chocolate mocha glaze:
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • sprinkles, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, melted butter and vanilla in a small bowl.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry together and stir together until well-combined. The batter will be fairly thick - I used a spoon to portion the batter into the donut pan cavities, filling each one about two-thirds full.
  5. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. All donuts to cool in pan for approximately 5 minutes and then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. To make the glaze:
  7. Whisk together powdered sugar, mocha iced coffee, cocoa powder and vanilla in a medium bowl. If the glaze is too thick, add more iced coffee until desired consistency is reached.
  8. Dip donuts into the glaze (I dipped mine twice), shake off the excess, and cover in rainbow sprinkles.

Honey BBQ Chicken with Ranch Slaw

Busy nights ahead? Dinner is no problem with these easy Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches topped with Ranch Slaw. Just a few ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need for this family friendly meal!

Dinner is no problem with these easy Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches topped with Ranch Slaw. Just a few ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need for this family friendly meal!

School starts for us here on Tuesday – I can’t believe it. It seems like the summer just started, and now I’m busy packing backpacks and labeling school supplies like nobody’s business.  But if you want to know the truth: I’m just a little bit excited.

Well, other than crying into my pillow that Doodle is starting the second grade (seriously…it seems like just yesterday I brought him home from the hospital, and now he’s be-bopping around like he’s big stuff), I’m looking forward to the routine of the school year again.

Since I work full-time, you wouldn’t think my schedule would change drastically during the summer (instead of school, Doodle’s been in karate camps most of the summer)…but between baseball and swimming and camps and regular karate classes and vacation and…well, you get the idea.

He has to go back to school for me to get any rest. ;-)  Moms…you’re feeling me on this, right?

Dinner is no problem with these easy Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches topped with Ranch Slaw. Just a few ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need for this family friendly meal!

We’re busy even with our new back-to-school schedule.  Karate on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  Two more classes on Saturday.  Homework folders on Monday evenings, with spelling tests on Wednesdays and Fridays and reading comprehension quizzes on Fridays.

Plus, Doodle’s already been asking about gymnastics classes.  He wants to learn how to do flips in conjunction with his flying tornado kicks.  I’m not sure how we’ll fit it all in, but somehow it seems less hectic than our summer.

So yeah.  I’m going to be relying heavily on the slow cooker this fall – starting with this Honey BBQ chicken topped with Ranch Slaw.  It’s such an easy meal – just pair it with a veggie and some fruit – and you have a tasty meal sure to please everyone at your table!

Dinner is no problem with these easy Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches topped with Ranch Slaw. Just a few ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need for this family friendly meal!

Tell me: what are some of your favorite slow cooker meals? I have a feeling I’m going to be giving mine a workout this fall, so I need lots of ideas!

French Breakfast Puffs

Try these French Breakfast Puffs for your next special breakfast occasion! Tender, fluffy, and rolled in cinnamon-sugar, these little donut-like muffins will be your new favorite breakfast treat.

Try these French Breakfast Puffs for your next special breakfast occasion! Tender, fluffy, and rolled in cinnamon-sugar, these little donut-like muffins will be your new favorite breakfast treat.

{Pssst….there’s a really awesome giveaway below, so if you’re looking for that, scroll on down}

Not long after I got married {nearly 10 years ago, holy smokes}, a work friend invited me to a Tastefully Simple party. One of the prepared muffins we got to sample were the Cinnamon Muffin Melts, which tasted like a sinful heaven to me.  I splurged on a box, which I made around the time of my first anniversary.

The Tall Boy went bonkers over them.  I mean, really, really bonkers.  And if you know my husband, that’s saying a lot when it comes to sweet breakfast breads.  But since those boxed mixes were pricey, we’ve only had them a time or two over the years.

Until now.

Try these French Breakfast Puffs for your next special breakfast occasion! Tender, fluffy, and rolled in cinnamon-sugar, these little donut-like muffins will be your new favorite breakfast treat.

Recently, I was paging through some of my grandmother’s old recipes and books, and I stumbled on this one. Reading through the ingredients and method, I knew it was the homemade version of those cinnamon muffin melts I’d made all those years before.

Only way better.

The biggest problem with these muffins is that they are not diet friendly. Hello, you dip them in butter and then roll ‘em around in a cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Socrazygood.  And so worth it.

Try these French Breakfast Puffs for your next special breakfast occasion! Tender, fluffy, and rolled in cinnamon-sugar, these little donut-like muffins will be your new favorite breakfast treat.

These French Breakfast Puffs are highly addictive. Paired with a steaming cup of coffee, I’m in pure breakfast bliss gobbling these up on a weekend morning.

Or a Wednesday morning, I’m not particular. ;-)

I’m a sucker for any recipe with “Mexican” in the title.  And when you add in “creamy” and “pasta,” it’s pretty much a winner in my book.  This pasta bake from A Dash of Sanity needs to happen in my kitchen asap.

Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee

With just the touch of a button, you can have a coffee-house style Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee in just under two minutes.  Nespresso's new VertuoLine makes brewing coffee a breeze!

One thing my friends and family know about me: I’m a coffee drinker.  Not because it’s a cool or hip thing, but out of necessity.  Have you seen these shirts on etsy?  I’m pretty sure they’re talking about me.

And I’m not usually one for fancy, over-sugared coffee drinks.  I’m not sure if this dates back to my all-nighters during graduate school, frantically trying to shove as much 800-level finance and economics into my brain – but I prefer my coffee black.  And strong.

But earlier this summer I visited a girlfriend in Seattle – home of coffee’s largest retailer.  I’ve read that there are 35 coffee shops per 100,000 residents and that Seattleites spend an average of $36 a month (!) on coffee.  So obviously, we drank a lot of coffee during my visit – iced coffees, specifically.

And I kinda-sorta fell in love with them.

So when Nespresso offered to send me their new VertuoLine coffee maker, I was pretty much head-over heels thrilled.

With just a touch of a button, you can have an 8-ounce cup of coffee in just under 2 minutes or a 1.35-ounce espresso in under a minute.  When you’re a coffee addict like I am, that quick brew time is everything.

With just the touch of a button, you can have a coffee-house style Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee in just under two minutes.  Nespresso's new VertuoLine makes brewing coffee a breeze!

After determining that I do, in fact, love iced coffees, finding a way to make them at home was a necessity.  Sorry, but I just can’t see paying upwards of $4.00 a pop at my local coffee-shops.  And like I said – I like my coffee strong.  So I brewed mine with coffee ice cubes to keep them from getting watered down.  Another benefit of making them at home. ;-)

One of the coolest things about Nespresso’s new VertuoLine is that each cup of coffee brews with a rich, generous foam called “crema” – it’s naturally formed during the brewing process and is pretty much the bomb.

Just insert a capsule and press the button – that’s it!

With just the touch of a button, you can have a coffee-house style Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee in just under two minutes.  Nespresso's new VertuoLine makes brewing coffee a breeze!

And with the crema, you don’t even need to add whipped topping like I did – but if you’re going to splurge, you might as well go whole-hog.

Nespresso offers eight different flavors of coffee, including a decaf and half-caf, as well as two flavored blends: vanilla and hazelnut (yum).  You can also choose from four different espresso blends, which range from a high-intensity blend to a decaf.

I used an espresso to make this Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee to ensure that the strong coffee flavor really came through.  It was definitely a winner, and so easy to make!

Tell me: do you drink iced coffees?  What’s your favorite kind?

Blueberry Coconut Popsicles

It’s summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy!

It's summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy!

This summer I’ve been eating a lot of popsicles – specifically, a Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicle.  And while they are awesome, the high-priced boxes are about to send me to the poor house.  So, I’ve been on a mission to create a copycat version that won’t break my pocketbook – or the calorie bank.

I’ve been using Silk’s new Almond-Coconut Blend all summer long.  I can add it to my oatmeal and smoothies with absolutely no guilt.  The unsweetened blend has only 35 calories per cup!  On top of that, it’s the perfect balance of almond and coconut flavors with no added sugar and it has 50 percent more calcium than dairy milk.

Score.

It's summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy!

One of my favorite things about the popsicles I’ve been eating this summer is the swirled blueberries throughout.  I wanted the same effect in my popsicles, so I roasted ‘em first.  I simply dumped a pint of berries onto my baking sheet, drizzled them with honey, and put them in the oven until the berries burst and the juices started to run out.

 While my berries were cooling, I mixed together some Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, Greek Yogurt (I used a honey-vanilla blend, but plain vanilla would work just fine), and a bit more honey to taste.  Then I carefully swirled the blueberries and their juices throughout, poured the mixture into my molds, and froze them for four hours.

I used my Norpro Ice Pop Maker – but whatever you have on hand will work.

It's summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy!

We devoured these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles in no time flat – and I didn’t feel guilty about allowing Doodle to eat them as a sweet treat!

Blueberry Coconut Popsicles

makes 8

Blueberry Coconut Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 pint blueberries, rinsed and picked through
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, optional
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup Silk Almond-Coconut Milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, gently toss berries with honey and sugar. Pour the berries onto your prepared baking sheet and roast for approximately 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Allow berries to cool before adding to the popsicle mixture.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt, 1 cup Silk Almond-Coconut blend, and honey to taste. I like my popsicles sweet, so I added in 2 tablespoons honey. You may choose more or less based on your preference.
  3. Once your berries are cool, gently add them and their juices to the yogurt mixture. Use a large spatula to fold together.
  4. Transfer the mixture into your popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours. To remove from the molds, run warm water on the outside of the molds for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the popsicles can be easily removed.
