A peanut butter flavored batter swirled with large pieces of Butterfinger Nest Eggs and crumbled pieces of bacon. A delightfully delicious chocolate glaze. More bacon. These Butterfinger Nest Eggs and Bacon Donuts prove that no matter the ingredients, eggs and bacon are the perfect pair!
Eggs and bacon are like the perfect pair. They always go together. Even if those eggs happen to be Butterfinger Nest Eggs. Right? RIGHT!
Friends, these are my new favorite donut creation. In fact, my sister-in-law who happens to be the best give-it-to-me-straight taste tester said they are my best ever donuts. If that isn’t a seal of approval, I don’t know what is!
Sure, I’ve made other donuts. There are the Triple Chocolate Snickerdoodle Donuts that I made 7 dozen of within two days. And of course, my Jelly Bean Donuts that are the perfect Spring time treat. And then there are the Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cups Donuts that started my donut obsession. This recipe is actually a spin-off of that one.
It all begins with a peanut butter flavored batter that’s swirled with large pieces of Butterfinger Nest Eggs and crumbled pieces of bacon. This is where I’ll also admit to adding bacon drippings to the batter. What can I say, it just kind of happened! The donuts are baked and when cooled are drizzled with a delightfully delicious chocolate glaze and then topped with additional bacon pieces. Chocolate, peanut butter and bacon prove to be an amazing flavor combination!
Eggs and bacon for breakfast. Eggs and bacon for dessert. Anytime is the perfect time to serve these Butterfinger Nest Eggs and Bacon donuts!
