We’re gearing up for National Donut Day next week and it’s got us reminiscing about some of our past recipes featuring one of our favorite treats, the donut. We’ve had a lot of fun creating a number of donut-centered dishes, but there are three in particular that we can’t stop thinking about: Donut Nachos, Donut Ice Cream Sundae Bar and S’mores Munchkin Fondue. These are three “sweet” recipes that are perfect for summer gatherings and definitely have a “wow” factor.

Donut Dessert Nachos

This innovative dish came straight out of our #DDTopChef recipe contest and is completely unique. Created by contest winner Jannine F., these Donut Dessert Nachos show just how versatile our delicious donuts can be. I love how you can create this dish with a just a Panini press. How cool is that?

Donut Ice Cream Sundaes

This recipe is a tasty twist on a dessert classic, the ice cream sundae. This is something I love to do at my dinner parties since you can turn it into a donut ice cream sundae bar so everyone can make their own dish with their favorite types of Dunkin’ Donuts’ donuts, Baskin-Robbins ice cream and toppings. It’s interactive and will generate a lot of fun chatter! Click here for the recipe!

S’mores Munchkins Donut Hole Treats FonDDue

When I think of summer treats, s’mores is definitely one of them. This is a great recipe for families or as an fun dessert at the end of a cookout. We created this dish for National S’mores Day but it can be a yummy staple all summer long. Click here for the recipe!
