These days, doughnuts are the go-to treat when it comes to innovative flavors and mashups. Just in the last week, we’ve seen dole whip doughnuts at Disneyland and even doughnut fries from Dunkin’. The latest comes courtesy of Krispy Kreme and includes doughnuts that taste just like your favorite cookies.

A Chips Ahoy! doughnut is the first new addition to the Krispy Kreme family, boasting dark chocolate icing, a cookie dough creme center and Chips Ahoy! crumbles on top. More of a peanut butter fan? Look no further than the new Nutter Butter variety. This one is a glazed twist doughnut that’s dunked in peanut butter icing, topped with Nutter Butter crumbles and finished off with another drizzle of peanut butter.

Krispy Kreme is no stranger to cookie-inspired treats and interesting pastry flavors. Their Oreo Cookies and Kreme doughnut has been around for a while now, and a new lemon doughnut will be joining their lineup later this year thanks to a fan-favorite contest.

Take a gander at the Krispy Kreme website to find out which location near you is selling these new creations. And don’t delay — they’ll only be around for a limited time!
