Salted Caramel Popcorn Donuts – The most delicious baked donut recipe ever! Made with homemade salted caramel sauce and topped with caramel popcorn. Plus they’re baked, so they’re not that unhealthy.
Salted Caramel Popcorn Donuts guys!! OMG!! 3 of my absolute favourite things all wrapped up into one amazing dessert. Firstly, we have salted caramel. If you guys have been following me for a while, you would know that I am OBSESSED with salted caramel! I have made everything from a Salted Caramel & Chocolate Tart, to an absoloutely heavenly Salted Caramel & Pecan Chia Pudding. I love salted caramel in every and any form. The mixture of sweet and salty is pure heaven! Then there’s the popcorn part, caramel popcorn to be exact. Who doesn’t love caramel popcorn, am I right? As a child it was one of my all time favourite snacks. I loved the crunchiness of the popcorn and the chewy sweetness of the caramel…mmmm. For this recipe you can either make your own (I have an awesome and easy recipe over…here) or you can simply buy some caramel popcorn. Last but not least…it’s DONUTS!! YUM! All 3 things are wrapped up into one awesome donut!
Since I bought my donut pan, I have been completely obsessed with making donuts. Baked donuts are simply the shizz nizz. You can use pretty much any cake or muffin recipe and it works and it’s delicious. It really gives you the freedom to be creative and go crazy with recipes. Hence, these magnificent Salted Caramel Popcorn Donuts.
I love making my own salted caramel sauce and keeping it in a jar for whenever the craving strikes. Therefore, you could make your very own salted caramel (it’s super easy I promise) or even make your own Vegan Salted Caramel. But store bought salted caramel will work perfectly fine as well.
