This little mini donut sure does pack one heck of a coconut punch.
Yields 30 Mini donuts

Between coconut extract, coconut milk, and toasted coconut on top, it’s like a mini coconut explosion! And when you combine that coconut explosion with, of course, chocolate, you’re in for a mini donut that will knock your socks off!

Toasted coconut:
To make toasted coconut, preheat oven to 350oF. Spread sweetened shredded coconut on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, stirring often, until light golden brown. Let cool, and then use as homemade sprinkles on top of all of your favorite mini donuts!
