Leading the autumn menu are the new Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares filled with smooth and creamy pumpkin cheesecake and topped with orange icing, crumbled graham crackers and white icing drizzle & REESE's Peanut Butter Squares, filled with rich and creamy Reese's peanut butter buttercreme, topped with chocolate icing and an orange icing drizzle. As you can imagine, they were rich and decadent.
Being a bit traditional, I really enjoyed the returning glazed pumpkin cake donut though and the Pumpkin Muffin with white icing and sweet streusel crumbs, which was surprisingly moist, light and deliciously spiced.
PSL say hello to PSM! Dunkin’ Donuts has also added a Macchiato to the menu, with its new Pumpkin Macchiato. Served hot or iced, Dunkin’ Donuts’ Pumpkin Macchiato is a handcrafted, layered espresso beverage made with steamed milk and pumpkin flavored swirl, then topped with a double shot of Dunkin’ Donuts’ rich, freshly-brewed espresso. It was a bit strong for this tea drinker, but I really admired it's layered beauty (see pic below) and its bold taste with just a hint of pumpkin.

Donut Hole Acorns
Using a glazed munchkin, we made donut hole acorn desserts, which are perfect for fall celebrations. The kiddos can help make them too. Simply pierce a slim mini pretzel stick through a pumpkin munchkin, then add chocolate icing or Nutella around the top and cover with chocolate sprinkles. I was quite proud of the result!
