Cider Doughnut Truffles : These doughnut-hole look-alikes are actually cake-ball-style truffles in disguise. Fold crumbled cider doughnuts into white chocolate ganache and then chill until firm. Scooping with a tablespoon, roll the mixture into balls and coat in cinnamon sugar. Insert wooden picks into the truffles for easy picking up and less mess (no sugary fingers!).
Cider Doughnut Milkshakes : You could call this indulgent dessert a Triple Apple Milkshake. Blend up crumbled cider doughnuts (apple #1) with softened apple pie ice cream (apple #2) and pour into tall glasses. Top each glass with a heaping helping of whipped cream and garnish with a pinch of cinnamon, apple slices (apple #3) and doughnut halves.
A great way to bring something healthy to your potlucks and dinners.
Cider Doughnut Tiramisu : This twist on traditional tiramisu whips up quickly — so you even can treat yourself to a fancy dessert after a long weekday. Dunk 4 doughnuts into hot coffee and place 2 in the bottom of each of 2 dessert glasses. Top with fresh whipped cream, chocolate shavings and store-bought chocolate sticks for a pretty presentation. Keep the desserts chilled until ready to serve.
Dipped Cider Doughnuts : Cider doughnuts get a flavor boost when dipped in white chocolate, semisweet chocolate or ready-made dulce de leche. Sprinkles make them festive and extra tasty, especially if you try coarse sanding sugar in autumnal hues, Swedish pearl sugar or real chocolate sprinkles.
Cider Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches : Doughnut ice cream sandwiches are one of the best inventions of all dessert-kind. Slice a doughnut horizontally and fill it with ice cream. Cider doughnuts in particular deserve a big scoop of a seasonal flavor, like pumpkin pie ice cream.
