Sweetheart Chocolate Donuts

I named these “Sweetheart” Chocolate Donuts with Valentines Day in mind, because I’m pretty sure these donuts are the way to anyone’s heart.

If there’s one thing that grabs people’s attention on Instagram, it’s donuts. I don’t know why, but people love to look at donuts. Don’t get me wrong, people love to taste donuts too, I’m sure, but people really love to look at donuts.

In my apartment, however, there’s not a lot of actual looking that goes on at donuts. It feels like I make them and the next day they’ve poofed! So… I’m pretty sure I made Kenneth’s day when I whipped up this chocolate donut recipe (for my sweetheart!). I named them “sweetheart” chocolate donuts with Valentines Day in mind, because I’m pretty sure these donuts are the way to anyone’s heart.

I’ve got two types of icing on these tasty treats: a simple vanilla frosting and a chocolate glaze. The recipes for both are included below, depending on how what you’re in the mood for. This chocolate donut recipe is quite moist and rich, so I recommend trying out the basic vanilla icing first.

Notes:

– I used a Wilton 6-Cavity Donut Pan.
– I used Wholesome Organic Light Brown Sugar and found the donuts to be more moist when using this.
– When adding the vinegar to the wet ingredients in the recipe, it is normal to see the milk curdle a little bit.
– In the pink icing, I used one drop of red food coloring.
