Oreo Donuts Bring Together Two Beloved Desserts

Oreos are a staple in many people's homes - and who can blame anyone? They're delicious, crunchy and sweet cookies that just go so perfectly with a cold glass of milk. For many it's a nostalgic experience, too. This Oreo Donuts recipe brings together two beloved desserts to form one amazing confection.

These donuts have a cakey, chocolatey texture that will melt in your mouth - there's even Oreos baked right into the batter! Your taste buds will love the hint of cookie crumble that tops the creamy vanilla glaze that resembles the middle of an Oreo. Give these donuts a try, and you might just love them more than the classic cookie!

While the donuts are cooling, make the frosting. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until smooth. The consistency should be thick but still thin enough to form ribbons when you scoop it from the bowl and back down.
