Ingredients You’ll Need:

For the Doughnuts:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Chocolate Glaze:

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


Preparation Steps:

Step 1: Prepare the Doughnut Batter

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix until all the wet ingredients are well incorporated.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay.

Gently fold the mini chocolate chips into the batter, ensuring they are evenly distributed.

Step 2: Fill the Doughnut Pan

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Spoon the batter into a piping bag or a large zip-top bag with one corner snipped off. Pipe the batter evenly into the doughnut molds, filling each about 2/3 full.

Step 3: Bake the Doughnuts

Place the doughnut pan in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a doughnut comes out clean.

Remove the doughnuts from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Prepare the Chocolate Glaze

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, unsalted butter, corn syrup, and heavy cream.

Microwave the mixture in 20-second intervals, stirring each time until the chocolate is completely melted and the glaze is smooth.

Step 5: Glaze the Doughnuts

Dip each cooled doughnut into the chocolate glaze, allowing any excess glaze to drip back into the bowl.

Place the glazed doughnuts back on the wire rack, and if desired, sprinkle with additional mini chocolate chips or sprinkles while the glaze is still wet.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Let the glaze set for about 10-15 minutes, or until it firms up. Then, your homemade Chocolate Chip Doughnuts are ready to be enjoyed. Serve them with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage for a delightful treat.

These Chocolate Chip Doughnuts are a crowd-pleaser and will satisfy your sweet tooth like nothing else. Enjoy making and sharing them with friends and family!
