Death By Dark Chocolate Donuts

Do you love the Halloween season?  I sure do.  I think it is hard when you live in Southwest Michigan (or Michigan in general) like I do not to be inspired by the falling leaves, spooky woods, potentially haunted cemeteries, one of the best Haunted Attractions nationwide and Apple Orchards with Corn Mazes galore! Just step outside and you will get all the festive ‘feels’ you can handle. So let’s add to the excitement with some ‘Death By Dark Chocolate Donuts’ why don’t we?  Dark chocolate in the batter.  Dark chocolate on top.  Dark chocolate everywhere!  These dark donuts are perfect for your Halloween breakfast table.

While your here why don’t you Celebrate #Choctoberfest with us?  Tons of chocolate recipes from awesome bloggers…oh and there’s a Giveaway! Visit here for all the info.

In a bowl add the base of your donut which is everything but the 2 Tbs milk, chocolate chips and butter. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave with 2 Tbs milk for around 4o seconds.  Melt the butter.  Add to the donut base.  Stir to combine completely.

Grease a donut pan (I only have 1 but this makes 12 donuts so depending on your donut pan situation you may have to do these in 2 batches like me).  Fill the donut wells about 1/2 way.  Then put these into the over for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.  Once baked take out of the oven and place on wax paper or tinfoil to cool.

Now time for the frosting!  I went through several frosting recipes but I decided that I would keep it simple and I  felt like it paid off.  Melt dark chocolate chips with milk for 40 seconds.  Stir to combine.  The only side note I would say is let the frosting cool then put into the refrigerator in a covered container.

Dip the top of the donuts into the delicious topping.  Set back on tinfoil to let the frosting completely cool.  And here you are…..
