Happy Belated National Donut Day

I try hard to be trendy and wanted to make a cronut (croissant + donut) dupe for the occasion. There's plenty of tutorials online but I was looking for something simple and didn't require a deep fryer. SFist came to my rescue.

They're dipped in white chocolate ganache (just white chocolate chips melted in heavy cream) with various toppings. The ones in the middle are the donut holes. Those were the best part, probably because I over baked them so they came out a tad crispy on the bottom.

Coconut in the front, cookies and cream in the back


Look at dem layers. Unfortunately the texture didn't at all resemble a croissant, but I was still impressed.


  1. Have you tried any around DC? I heard that Cocova sells them. Maybe I'll head over tomorrow and see what's up. The other day I was reading about how crazy popular they are at that bakery in NYC...

    1. Nevermind. I lied. I didn't read the Yelp review entirely. A shop called Chocolate Crust has their version of a cronut called a Doissant. The yelp review said it is Cocova's other shop, but I asked the Cocova worker and he said they don't have any other shops haha.

    2. Oh no, Chocolate Crust seems out of the way via metro :( Too bad Cocova doesn't have it, the chocolates there look amazing on Yelp.
