Instructions

  • 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.
  • Enjoy

Notes

Once you add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stir just until combined. Over stirring will result in dense, rubbery donuts.
