The base for this doughnut recipe, I've made a few times and it's one of my favorite baked doughnuts out there. The salted caramel glaze is rich and buttery and a perfect accompaniment. The crunchy Skor bits were a bit of an afterthought and definitely not needed, but absolutely worth it. It's a real shame that I only made six because they were all gone before I could blink an eye.
I've made this recipe with both dark and milk chocolate. Each is unique in flavor, and really, it's up to you to choose your favorite. Once you've rolled out the dough into a tight tube, and carefully sliced it into perfectly beautiful rounds, your natural instinct is going to be to place them neatly and tightly into a large pan, where they can rise and puff into each other.
