Triple Chocolate Baked Doughnuts that stay fresh for a few days

A few weeks ago, I accidentally made the best baked chocolate doughnuts. I was testing my chocolate stout baked doughnuts recipe and added some melted chocolate to the batter. Although it was hard to taste the beer, what I did taste was the most amazing chocolate doughnuts. So amazing that I filed the recipe away on my “must post asap” list and looked at my calendar to see how soon I could bring you this recipe. If you ever made doughnuts at home, whether they were baked or fried, you probably noticed they don’t taste fresh the next day. Not this recipe. Thanks to the buttermilk and coffee, these Triple Chocolate Baked Doughnuts stayed super moist for a few days. And I’m not kidding around – when I say chocolate doughnuts, I really do mean in-your-face chocolate because I used chocolate three times – cocoa powder in the batter, melted chocolate in the batter, and of course that thick chocolate glaze. I’m not talking about those super thin glazes that almost immediately get absorbed into the doughnut. I’m talking about a super thick glaze, almost like a frosting but thin enough to dip. Then you dunk them into rainbow sprinkles because sprinkles naturally make doughnut eating more fun. Are you hungry for doughnuts yet? Good because they take less than an hour to make too.

Homemade Barbecue Potato Chips - both baked and fried recipes

Judging by how many potato recipes I posted this month (answer: 3), you’d think the potato was my favorite vegetable. I can’t say that it’s my number one favorite, but I certainly do love potatoes (case in point: see all of my potato recipes). When I buy them, it’s definitely a better deal to buy a 5 pound bag rather than a few loose ones, but as you can imagine when you’re just one person, it takes a lot to use up 5 pounds. That’s why when I buy a bag, I have plans to make several potato recipes. I’ve been wanting to make Homemade Barbecue Potato Chips for awhile, so after making my broccoli and cheese mashed potatoes, I went to town and made several batches. Then I inhaled said batches in half the time it took to make them. Why don’t the snack recipes ever last long enough? Just like my salt and vinegar chips, I made both fried and baked potato chips then tossed them in barbecue seasoning. Personally, I prefer baking as it doesn’t require as much oil, but I included both methods in the recipe so you can decide how you want to make them. Either way, if you haven’t tried making homemade potato chips of any kind, you don’t know what you’re missing.
