Glazed Chocolate Donut Muffins – perfect treat when you want a donut and a muffin in the same time! The chocolate glaze is crazy good!
You know how sometimes you see something and you just can’t get it out of your head? Example: donuts. First I saw Kristen’s Chocolate Cake Donuts and was instantly smitten and then Cheryl shared her Maple & Cinnamon Baked Donuts and I was obsessed. Donuts I had to have!
Besides chocolate is know for getting rid of the Winter blues. Glazed Chocolate Donut Muffins are the way to go when Mother Nature plays with our patience.
But I am lazy and it’s Winter and lots of snow and I don’t feel like dragging three kids to Michael’s to find a donut pan… Don’t judge me. Winter is tiring and shopping with little ones can be quite overwhelming. So I had to figure out another way to have my donuts. And then it hit me! I made donut muffins before and loved them! It was time to make a chocolate version.
I am so glad I did! These donut muffins are so easy to make and super delicious! The chocolate glaze was my Hubby’s request. The sprinkles – my girls’. So as you can see, it was a family affair. And it all started with my craving for donuts.
These muffins taste just like baked donuts. I love the tops! High and cracked! The glaze is super simple to make and (just a warning) you will find yourself (or your kids) with fingers in the bowl, stealing some straight into your mouth!
So next time you are craving donuts and don’t want to make a yeast dough and fry it or don’t have a donut pan – try these donut muffins! You will love them!
I made these Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donut Muffins (that look like donut holes) around the same time. Check them out!
