I.  Made.  Donuts.  

I dipped the donuts in chocolate.  I dipped the chocolate covered donuts in toasted coconut.  Nom.  Of course these would be best in Autumn with some hot apple cider, but still good, especially with coffee.  
Toasted-Coconut Chocolate-Dipped Donuts:  


vegetable oil
1- ½ cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon nutmeg (… and a little cinnamon)
¼ cup sour cream
1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted 

coco powder
brown sugar (or confectioner’s sugar)
sweetened coconut

what TO DO

in a saucepan…
pour oil until 2-3 inches deep
heat on medium heat until VERY hot (about 350 F)
(heat the oil while you make the donuts & the timing should be perfect)

in a small bowl…
whisk the egg
add melted butter
stir in the sour cream

in a bowl…
sift flour, sugar, baking soda, nutmeg (+cinnamon)
add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients FOLDING (it takes some work but do not over stir)
if the dough is wet, wrap and place in the fridge for 10-20 mins
on a floured surface…
roll out the dough until it is about ½” – ¾” thick
use something round (such as a glass) to cut out the donuts
use something smaller (such as a shot glass) to cut out the donut holes

in the VERY hot oil…
fry the donuts (a few at a time)
for about 1-2 mins per side
set on a paper towel to dry/cool

in another saucepan…
mix brown sugar with coco powder to form a thick chocolate glaze
dip the donuts in the glaze and immediately dip in coconut (preferably toasted)
