Chocolate Glazed Munchkins with Toasted Coconut Flakes

Who doesn’t love a good munchkin? I am a sucker for them every time I grab a coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts (my favorite place to get coffee – after all, I AM from New England) so I wanted to try and recreate a delicious munchkin at home. These took less than 30 minutes to make and were a perfect treat!

I start by getting the munchkin batter ready with the dry ingredients.

They look like jumbo-sized munchkins.

I make the chocolate glaze, starting by adding the flour with the cocoa powder.
