Chocolate Coconut Donuts. Who wants a donut? The flavor combo of  chocolate and coconut works so well together. The key flavor in these  donuts is coconut. I’m using @Amoretti Toasted Coconut Extract in the  donut and the glaze. It lightens the flavor of the chocolate and  balances it out. Amoretti has an incredible lineup for extracts,  perfect for baking! With coupon code SALTYCOOKERFREESHIP you’ll get  free shipping on your next order!
