  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before transferring the doughnuts to a wire cooling rack.
  7. Allow to cool completely before adding the topping.

  1. Melt the Ombar Centres Hazlenut Truffle in a bain-marie until smooth.
  2. With a spoon, drizzle the melted Ombar over the doughnuts, add as much or as little as you like.
  3. Sprinkle over the crushed hazelnuts.
  4. Enjoy!
