New York City’s BlissBomb, which specializes in baked mini donuts available nationwide, has launched three new seasonal flavors for winter. The company’s pastry chef, Tarran Hatton, views donut R&D the same as developing a plated dessert, and BlissBomb’s first quarter seasonals are great examples of that approach.

The new mini donut flavors include:

Sesame B&W

  • Base: Black sesame, vanilla, sesame oil
  • Glaze: White chocolate
  • Topping:   Black sesame, honey sesame crunch, Maldon salt

BlissBomb reworked the classic Black & White cookie with a savory twist. This black sesame-studded vanilla donut is enrobed in creamy white chocolate and topped with benne brittle.

Grapefruit Ginger

  • Base: Ruby red grapefruit
  • Glaze: Ginger, grapefruit
  • Topping: Crystallized ginger

This Heller Bros. grapefruit and ginger donut is topped with lively crystallized ginger, bringing a bit of brightness to the winter gloom.

Spicy Churro

  • Base: Cinnamon churro
  • Glaze: Dark chocolate
  • Topping: Chili churro sugar and dulce de leche drizzle

This spicy cinnamon churro donut gives you the best of both dips – Spanish hot chocolate replicated in the dark chocolate enrobing, and a drizzle made of chewy Mexican dulce de leche.
