Valentine's Day Double Chocolate Donuts


OH man, you guys. Valentine's Day is next week and we are already smitten for all things looove around here. And I LOVE these double chocolate donuts.

Like a lot, a lot. 

And you will too - no joke. They were soft, sweet, and had the most gorgeous texture. Truly a lovely treat for Valentine's Day - or any other day you're craving a special treat! 


When I lived at my brother's house this summer while we were saving up for our home, I fell head-over-heels in love with my sister-in-law's donut pans. Seriously, they were the cutest thing I'd ever seen, and made the most darling little donuts I've ever had. 

So when she gifted me a donut pan for my birthday, I just about died and gone to heaven!! 


I knew the first recipe I'd make with that donut pan would be a chocolate one, and might as well make it a double chocolate one with a chocolate glaze, eh?   

I thought so! 


The recipe is very straight forward, requires no stand mixer, and comes together very quickly. Mix in the dry ingredients with the wet ones, pipe the batter into the donut pans, bake, dip in the frosting/glaze, and call it DONUT HEAVEN in less than 20 minutes.

Double Chocolate Donuts 
makes 12 normal-sized donuts, or 24 mini donuts

ingredients:

donut:
3/4 C all-purpose flour
1/3 C cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
2 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter, cooled to room temperature
1 egg
1/4 C packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
6 Tablespoons buttermilk

glaze: 
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
5 Tablespoons heavy cream
2 teaspoons corn syrup
sprinkles

method:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prep a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. 
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. 
3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, egg, sugars, vanilla, and buttermilk. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and whisk until combined. 
4. Using a large piping bag without a tip, or a ziploc baggie with a corner cut off, pipe the dough into the donut pan - only use a little bit, don't over fill. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, turn the pan over to free the donuts from the pan, and allow the donuts to cool on an cooling rack. 
5. Make the glaze: whisk together the icing sugar, cocoa, cream, and corn syrup. Whisk until glaze is smooth. Add in more powdered sugar to thicken, or heavy cream to thin to desired consistency. Top with sprinkles, and store in an airtight container for up to 2 days for best freshness.

    1. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

      But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

      I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

      But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

      My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

      And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

      We just KNOW when it’s missing.

      ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

      The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

      It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

      In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

      It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

      Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====
