Day 5 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside: OMG – Bacon & Doughnuts!!! Frost is the Place!

“Doughnuts Evolved”

is the way the people at Frost Doughnuts in Mill Creek Town Center describe their doughnuts.  I have been making the trip to Mill Creek almost weekly just to get doughnuts!

These aren’t what you would find at Krispy Kreme, Safeway or Dunkin’ Donuts. These are carefully created tempting taste explosion. Every day they rotate through their selection of wonderful doughnuts.

Some of their creation include:

Bourbon Caramel Pecan

Bourbon Caramel Pecan

Homemade caramel made with top-shelf reserve bourbon tops a moist vanilla cake doughnut before it is rolled in fresh chopped pecans.

Marcona Almond & Tart Cherry Bismarck

Marcona Almond & Tart Cherry Bismarck

Our fresh raised bismarck is filled with tart almond-scented cherries and glazed with our own amaretto icing. Asprinkle of Spanish Marcona almonds completes the masterpiece.

The Pink Lady Frost

Elegant and refined. Our moist chocolate cake doughnut receives a crown of pink strawberry buttercream before it’s dusted with pink sanding sugar.

Smokey Bacon Maple Bar

This is the whole reason I go to Frost!!! It is AMAZING!!! The ultimate salty/smokey/sweet combination. We take maple bacon made fresh daily and add it to our delicious maple bar. Skeptical? Try it and you’ll be a believer!
