I have a go-to chocolate donut recipe that incorporates Guinness and it proved itself as a winner here in a Christmas-y context. Paired with a bittersweet ganache and crushed candy canes, it’s not too sweet and has a nice minty flavour, not to mention some crunch!
If you don’t have peppermint extract, don’t worry as the candy canes will add enough mint flavour. You could also put a twist on these by replacing the candy canes with flaky sea salt and omitting the peppermint extract for a salty hit that looks like snow.
Stay tuned for gingerbread donuts!
