Preheat oven to 325 F.
Grease a donut pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, unsweetened cocoa powder, and brown sugar. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together, buttermilk, coffee, egg, and vanilla extract.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
Stir gently JUST until dry ingredients are combined *SEE NOTE*
Stir in butter and stir JUST until butter is combined.
Spoon batter into prepared doughnut pan, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 6-7 minutes.
Allow donuts to sit in pan until they have cooled down enough to remove from pan.
Remove donuts from pan and place on cooling rack to finish cooling.
While donuts are cooling, prepare vanilla drizzle by stirring together powdered sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to create an Elmers glue-like consistency) Set aside.
To make the chocolate ganache, heat heavy whipping cream to a small saucepan until it begins to simmer lightly.
Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips. (I like to use mini chocolate chips because they melt faster)
Let ganache cool.
Spread chocolate ganache in a thin layer over donuts and let set.
Once set, drizzle on the vanilla glaze.
Add toppings and allow glaze to harden.
Once you add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stir just until combined. Over stirring will result in dense, rubbery donuts.
