Chocolate Sprinkle Donuts

Can I even call myself a dessert blogger if I don’t have a recipe for chocolate donuts?! There’s something so totally indulgent and fun about biting into a rich chocolate donut that was practically drowned in chocolate glaze and sprinkled to the high heavens with brightly colored nonpareils.

Baked to fluffy chocolate perfection, these donuts are deceptively dairy-free. You wouldn’t know it though, I promise. And without the need to fry them, they whip up in a snap. You can literally have your donut and eat it too with your afternoon coffee. So why are you still reading ? get baking!
