The Salted Caramel Budino Donut Has Arrived

You may all begin freaking out now.


We’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and now it is finally here. Chef Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran have finished testing, tinkering and experimenting with their creation and are now ready to turn it loose on the world.

The salted caramel budino donut will be offered for sale for a limited time only–just two days. On Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, the donuts will be for sale at the Marcie Blaine chocolate counter inside Verde. They go on sale at 10am. They’ll run you $4 apiece. And when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Here’s how they’re being described:

For the Budino Donut, Chef Turney stuffs a vanilla glazed yeast donut with her special caramel budino pudding, which is then rolled in a salted caramel crunch topping and finished with dark chocolate cookie crumbs and sprinkles of a few grains of Fleur de Sel sea salt.

And that, folks, is all you need to know.
