Dunkin' Donuts Offers Heart Shaped Donut Plus Donut Recipe

Pick up some love on the way to the office this morning and get a dozen Cupid's Choice donuts from Dunkin's Donuts. This is Dunkin's first-time attempt at making a heart-shaped donut.

The Cupid's Choice donut comes in two varieties - basically a heart-shaped bavarian creme donut and a heart-shaped jelly donut with pink frosting. Both varities have heart-shaped candy confetti.

While you would probably get punched in the head repeatedly if you tried to give this to a date instead of something more in the line of an expensive dinner or jewelry, the Cupid's Choice donut makes an ideal present for the office or your five year old.

In the spirit of the holiday season, Dunkin' Donuts has also shared a recipe for Cocoa Donut "Grilled Cheese", which is actually more delicious than it initially sounds. Recipe after the jump.
