Which Milk Is Best to Use to Make the Vegan Chocolate Doughnuts?

You will have several options when selecting the right milk to use to make your Vegan Chocolate Doughnuts. Coconut milk is a great dairy-free option that offers a slightly sweeter taste than some of the other options.

How to Store the Doughnuts

Once you prepare the Vegan Chocolate Doughnuts, allow them to cool down before attempting to store them. You can put them in a large food storage container, separating each doughnut with at least ½ an inch of space between them to keep them from sticking to one another.

If you store them on the countertop, the doughnuts will stay fresh for about two days. However, you can put them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh for up to a week. It is a good idea to store the doughnuts in the fridge if you make a large batch and would like to eat at least one a day throughout the week.
