  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 18 donuts 1x


Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 24 tablespoons milk
  • jimmies for topping



  1. In a small bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave set on HIGH for 30 seconds, stir. Reheat for an additional 15 seconds or until about 75% of chips have melted, stir until all chips have melted; set aside to cool.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a donut baking pan with nonstick cooking spray with flour; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on low to medium speed, mix buttermilk, water, egg, butter, vinegar and vanilla until just combined. Gradually add flour mixture and continue mixing until batter is thoroughly mixed.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold in cooled, melted chocolate until there are no visible streaks in the batter.
  6. Spoon batter into each donut cavity about one-half to two-thirds full.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Allow donuts to rest in pan for 5 minutes before inverting donuts over onto a cloth or wire rack for additonal cooling. Repeat baking process until the entire donut batter is used. Allow donuts to cool completely before glazing.


  1. In a deep bowl, mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons milk until no visible dry pockets remain. Add another tablespoon of milk at a time if glaze is too thick.


  1. Dip each donut about halfway deep into the chocolate glaze. Shake excess glaze off and rest donut glaze-side-up over a wire rack. Note: to achieve picture perfect sprinkled donuts, glaze about 6 donuts at a time before sprinkling your favorite jimmies. This will allow glaze to settle toward the sides of the donut therefore, the jimmies will hold in place when sprinkled.
  2. Allow the glaze to dry for 20 minutes before serving. ENJOY!
