Limited-Edition Babka Doughnut at the Salty Donut. The Wynwood-based shop recently introduced one of its most labor-intensive creations yet: the Babka Squared ($6). Think of it as a doughnut within a doughnut. The treat is a mini babka doughnut wrapped in a layer of 24-hour brioche dough topped with a chocolate-and-nut streusel. Dozens of miniature babka doughnuts are baked in-house and soaked in simple syrup. Then babka-flavored brioche dough is carefully wrapped around each doughnut, allowing the hole to remain. (The hole is ultimately covered by the chocolate-and-nut streusel.) Available through September 17. 50 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-925-8126; saltydonut.com. Tuesday through Friday 7:30 a.m. till the doughnuts are sold out, Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. until sold out.
Sip, Peel, and Win at Dunkin' Donuts. Now through September 30 (or while supplies last), specially marked large and extralarge hot cups will be stickered with a game piece, giving customers a chance to win a year's worth of free coffee and other great prizes, such as gift cards and menu items. Nonwinning game pieces have valuable coupons for Dunkin’ products or discounts at fanatics.com. Available at various Dunkin' Donuts locations; dunkindonuts.com.
