These Chocolate Stout Donuts from Bakers Royale are super awesome. These ones that I made were a surprise for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, so I didn’t post them up before the holiday, but I’d definitely suggest them for any occasion.
I also made my boyfriend a candy, bourbon, and bacon rose bouquet to go with the donuts. He really loved this, especially the bacon roses. I used these instructions to make them, but instead of drilling holes in the mini muffin tin to drain the bacon grease (no way I’m going to ruin a baking pan for these!), I put a cookie sheet over the top of the bacon in the muffin pan and drained the grease into a bowl periodically. If you like well-cooked bacon, I’d suggest baking them twice as long as those instructions say, and also turning them over about halfway through so that the bottoms of the bacon get cooked well too.
I hope you had a fun Valentine’s Day with your loved ones.
