What Are Munchkins?

Munchkins are one of the most popular and beloved types of donuts. The little round balls of dough are typically filled with flavored cream and then fried until golden brown. The result is a delicious snack that’s perfect for any occasion.

They have been sold at Dunkin Donuts for years, and they are a great and easy treat that the entire family will love!

How To Store:

I recommend eating these tasty treats within 24 hours of making them, but they can be stored in airtight containers for up to a day. If you want to reheat them, before serving them, place them back into the air fryer or microwave them until they are warmed through.

How To Freeze:

You can also freeze donut holes, but they’re best when cooled and placed on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze until solid before placing in an airtight container or bag to keep them fresh for up two weeks at most!

You can either thaw them in the refrigerator overnight or place them on the counter until thawed. You can reheat them in the air fryer or in the microwave, right before serving.
