Krispy Kreme said the limited edition donuts are made with pieces of real Ghirardelli chocolate, along with a few other toppings and fillings. The Sea Salt Caramel donut is filled with salted caramel filling, dipped in chocolate icing, drizzled chocolate and caramel icings, and topped with a blend of amber sugar, salt sprinkle, and Ghirardelli mini chocolate chips.
As for the Mint Chocolate donut, Krispy Kreme said it's filled with White Mint Kreme filling inspired by Ghirardelli Chocolate Mint Squares, dipped in chocolate icing, decorated with green icing, and finished with Ghirardelli mini chocolate chips dusted in powdered sugar. The fillings and icings for both donuts are also made with Ghirardelli ingredients, according to a press release. Basically, you get a donut and a candy bar all in one.
Speaking of donut-candy bar hybrids, we're still waiting for Krispy Kreme to bring its Australia-exclusive Reese's Peanut Butter Cup donuts to the United States. The Ghirardelli donuts will probably do for now, though.
