10. Filled Chocolate Oreo Donuts from Oh, Sprinkles!

From the website: “If you are an avid Oreo eater/addict you will like these donuts. They scream Oreo top to bottom…well almost. The filling, a cream of mascarpone and cream cheese is loaded with ground Oreos. They are ground because it’s easier to pipe and fill the donuts. Make sure you buy the cream cheese and mascarpone in the full fat version. The diet can wait for another day! ;-)”
