Oreos are a staple in many people’s homes—and who can blame anyone? They’re delicious, crunchy and sweet cookies that just go so perfectly with a cold glass of milk. For many it’s a nostalgic experience, too. This Oreo Doughnut recipe brings together two beloved desserts to form one amazing confection.

These doughnuts have a cakey, chocolatey texture that will melt in your mouth—there’s even Oreos baked right into the batter! Your taste buds will love the hint of cookie crumble that tops the creamy vanilla glaze that resembles the middle of an Oreo. Give these doughnuts a try, and you might just love them more than the classic cookie!

Ingredients:

For the doughnuts

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar, white or cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Oreos, crushed finely
  • Donut pan

For the frosting

  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Oreos, crushed finely, for sprinkling

Directions:

For the doughnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard sized doughnut pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, whisking to combine.
  5. Gently fold in the crushed Oreos.
  6. Transfer mixture into a pastry bag or large ziplock with a hole cut into the corner.
  7. Pipe batter into donut molds, filling ⅔ of the way up the molds.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the donut comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool 10 minutes before frosting

For the frosting 

  1. While the donuts are cooling, make the frosting.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until smooth.
  3. The consistency should be thick but still thin enough to form ribbons when you scoop it from the bowl and back down.
  4. Dip each donut into the frosting and top with more crushed Oreos. Enjoy!

This Clever Young Man Delivers His Resume Inside A Box Of Donuts

Landing a job can be easier said than done, especially for young professionals. Finding a way to make yourself stand out from the crowd is key. That’s exactly what 25-year-old Lukas Yla has done, in a most delicious way.

As Thrillist reports, Yla has been delivering his resume to companies in San Francisco inside of a box of donuts. If that isn’t the smartest thing you’ve ever heard, I don’t know what is! And, he takes it a step further than that— he poses as the delivery guy, too.

Essentially, he’s hand-delivering his resume to companies who probably wouldn’t normally accept that kind of a handout. Thanks to his clever disguise, he’s helping to ensure recruiters see his resume and enjoy a tasty treat at the same time.

In addition to some delicious-looking donuts, Yla includes a cover letter and resume inside each box, so there are no questions left unanswered for the recipients besides perhaps, “When can we hire him?” Probably after that box of donuts is polished off, of course!

This creative approach to job-hunting really seems to be getting a great response so far. Yla told Thrillist via email, “I had 10 interviews so far and I haven’t delivered donuts to all the companies I admire and love what they’re doing yet. Recruiters, marketing pros and people in general love this kind of approach, it’s something you didn’t expect, fun and out of the box.”

As he said, this approach has already gotten him 10 interviews. So, the results are in: People love donuts, and if they can fill an open position while enjoying a dough filled with jelly, even better!

Folks everywhere who are looking for a job can learn a thing or two from Yla. A little creativity goes a long way. And if there’s a way to include dessert in your outreach, that probably won’t hurt either.
