Drunkin’ Donuts: Boozy, Chocolatey, and Oh-So-Trendy
As soon as we read about Drunkin Donuts we knew we had to try making our own spin. And with our love of Valentine’s Day and dip dye, these donuts are like a match made in a super boozy bar-like heaven.
We’ve made dip dye cookies, tights, sundresses… the list goes on. And now we’re moving on to donuts, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Not only is chocolate an aphrodisiac, throw in some booze and you’ve got the perfect V-Day treat. Make this for your sweetheart and they’ll be smitten! ‘Cause real talk: who can deny the lethal combination of sugar, booze, and chocolate?
– 12 regular, glazed donuts
– 12 oz chocolate chips or chocolate melts
– 6 tsp Baileys Irish Cream
If using candy melts, follow the directions for melting. For chocolate chips, microwave on half power in 30 second intervals, until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the Bailey’s teaspoon by teaspoon, keeping an eye on the consistency. If it gets too watery, stop adding the Bailey’s. Dip the donuts in the chocolate halfway.
Add sprinkles and then let it dry on wax paper. Enjoy!
No one can say no to these.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
