Anyone who runs on Dunkin’ knows the snackable doughnut holes called Munchkins. Instead of running out to Dunkin’ Donuts one morning this week, why not put in a little work in the kitchen and make obscenely chocolatey, glazed, from-scratch Munchkins at home?

Follow this recipe from Love, Cake (via Food52), grab a huge glass of milk, and get to dunking.

Fry the donuts: In a heavy pot with a candy thermometer attached, heat 3 inches of oil to 360° F. 

Use a spider or a slotted spoon to lower the dough balls into the oil, four at a time. Remember: don’t crowd the pan.

The doughnut holes look awesome at this stage. But to be called Munchkins, they really need the glaze.
