What’s orange and yellow with salted caramel peanut butter all over? The latest, greatest beast of a doughnut from Krispy Kreme, that’s what.

If you’re a fan of mashups with a passionate sweet tooth, this “outrageous” collaboration between Krispy Kreme and Reese’s Pieces is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

The “Reese’s Outrageous” Doughnut was released on Monday morning at participating Krispy Kreme shops in America, where it will be available for a limited time.

It’s made with a fluffy chocolate yeast doughnut (the opposite of a cake doughnut), which is dipped in Hershey’s chocolate fudge icing. Mini Reese’s Pieces are then sprinkled on top, before the whole thing gets drizzled with a peanut butter and salted caramel sauce.

“This is hands down the most outrageous doughnut experience we’ve created,” said Krispy Kreme CEO Mike Tattersfield in a statement. “The Reese’s Outrageous Doughnut strikes a perfect balance of taste and texture sensations with an airy chocolate doughnut, gooey caramel and peanut butter drizzle, and classic crunch of Reese’s Pieces.”

The doughnut is not the first collaboration between the brands; Krispy Kreme released a limited-edition peanut butter doughnut last year, which was met with customer acclaim. This year’s crazy creation was inspired by the Reese’s Outrageous candy bar.
