Guinness + Bailey’s Glazed Donut Holes

I was all set to make Guinness donuts in my donut pan last weekend (to avoid studying for my final, which is finally over just in time for March Madness). Then I remembered seeing recipes for donut holes made in a mini muffin tin, which just seemed cuter to me. All you have to do is take any baked donut recipe, put them in a mini muffin pan instead and then adjust the cooking time. This trick also works well if you don’t want to buy a specialty donut pan, but if you ask me, it’s totally worth having in the cabinet.

I glazed half the donut holes with a Guinness glaze and half with a Bailey’s glaze. I can’t decide which was my favorite… I imagine a chocolate glaze would be pretty awesome as well.

Even though St. Patrick’s Day is over, Guinness is available year round and chocolate donuts are always in style!
