It has been years since I had a Krispie Kreme. but when I did, I could understand why so many enjoy what they create. It is not home made and, of course, I am no doughnut expert, but these doughnuts were light and fluffy and it would be easy to eat more than one. Even easier to eat three when you have a nice glass of cold milk. For this doughnut, you need whole milk! Why have skim milk with this kind of richness! The Dairy Council of California recommends that the temperature of the refrigerator should be set at 38° to 40°F so I enjoy milk at this temperature whenever I have something has satisfying as this kind of doughnut and glaze.

I'm usually a Dunkin Donuts man, but this does sound delicious.

I love the idea of chocolate cream filled doughnuts from Krispie Kreme. We have a Krispie Kreme doughnut shop just right down the road from us and we try and limit ourselves to just one visit a month. When we go we get 2 dozen cream filled doughnuts. I'm so glad you posted this because I'm going to look for the chocolate cream filled one's on the next trip. Love the glaze recipe too. Thank you for the post.
