Hot Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme doughnuts were meant to be eaten hot.

Krispy Kreme, the establishment, knows that and has a “hot light.” When the hot light is on, the doughnuts are hot.

Sometimes, when I go to Krispy Kreme to get my nightly doughnut fix at 1 am (bless this wonderful country that has 24-hour doughnut drive-throughs) the hot light is on. And then there is sweet, sweet, hot doughnut love.

Sometimes, however, the hot light is not on.

This used to mean cold doughnuts. Cold doughnuts are just not the same.

Sometimes I would wait until I got back home and could microwave them.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts, however, are not meant to be microwaved. It’s unnatural. Something is not quite right about them.

Ian has found another way.

Step 1: Turn on the car’s front defrosters to full blast.

Step 2: Place doughnuts on top of the dash, right on the vents blasting hot air.

Step 3: Wait a couple minutes.

Step 4: Enjoy hot, sweet doughnut love.

I’m not even remotely kidding - it is just like the hot light was on. It is a thing of great beauty. Ian is a genius.
