Double Chocolate Donuts with Sprinkles

These Double Chocolate Donuts with Sprinkles are baked not fried-giving them a moist, cake-like texture. Topped with the BEST homemade chocolate glaze and sprinkles which makes them simply irresistible!!

Servings: Makes 12 donuts

GREEN/BLUE/ PURPLE: 3 Smartpoints per donut with homemade chocolate glaze with sprinkles 

What ingredients do I need to make these Double Chocolate Donuts with Sprinkles?

  • All-purpose flour
  • Zero point white granulated sugar substitute– I use Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener  
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Nutmeg-takes these donuts to the next level; however you can omit the nutmeg if you don’t like it.
  • Salt
  • Unsweetened almond milk or skim milk- the overall point value is the same either way.
  • Egg/Egg white- at room temperature. The donut batter mixes better and they will rise more easily if the eggs are at room temperature. 
  • Unsweetened applesauce sauce-used as a substitute for oil
  • Sprinkles 

What ingredients do I need for the homemade chocolate glaze?

This is a homemade chocolate glaze that I use for a few of my baked goodies-NOW-before you read the ingredients and think WHAT?? How can this glaze be WW friendly? Trust me when I say…it’s worth the points- this chocolate glaze takes these to a whole NEW LEVEL and only makes these donuts 3 Smartpoints (per donut)-I’m telling you- NO ONE will believe that these donuts are WW friendly! 

You will need:

  • Regular milk chocolate chips – I love Toll House milk chocolate chips. Any brand will work though. 
  • Unsalted regular butter- I use Kroger brand unsalted butter. Any brand will work and are very similar in point values 
  • Corn syrup – this gives the glaze that soft and smooth texture-prevents crystallization of sugar and enhances flavor!
  • Skim milk or unsweetened almond milk – helps thin out the glaze

 

Now..if you wanted to omit the chocolate glaze all together they would be 2 Smartpoints per donut.

What donut pan do you recommend for these?

 This recipe makes a total of 12 donuts. You will use two 6-cavity donut pans.

You can find the donut pans HERE on Amazon. If you don’t have a donut pan- the donuts can also be made in a muffin tin. 

How do I make these Double Chocolate Donuts with Sprinkles?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray two 6-cavity donut pans (regular size)with non stick cooking spray.

Add to the wet ingredients.

Mix until well combined.

Place the batter into a piping bag

or spoon fill the prepared donut cavities 3/4 of the way to allow them to rise.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until fully cooked.

Let the donuts cool for about 5 minutes in the pan before removing.

For the chocolate glaze: place chocolate, unsalted butter, corn syrup, and skim milk or unsweetened almond milk in a microwavable bowl. 

Melt in 20 second increments in the microwave, stir after each time, and cook until completely melted and smooth.

I decided To make this recipe after my gym workout tonight and it’s absolutely delicious. I followed The recipe exactly as written for the batter but did use THE0 chocolate squares and maple syrup for the glaze because I love dark chocolate and it’s all I had On hand in terms of glaze alternatives. Also, I did not have sprinkles so I toasted a small amount of crushed pecans and added them to a few of the donuts, leaving the others with just the glaze. I’m in high altitude- Denver 5280 and this was perfect in the oven on the 2nd from lowest rack in the oven for 8.5 minutes. Thank you for another wonderful recipe. As usual, this was posted to my followers on WW.

These donuts are delicious! I ordered a donut pan, but I think the sizes although both "regular" were just a bit different. I got 9 donuts out of the mix, but I'm still pleased. I cooked them for 10 minutes and they turned out pretty well! I'm not sure the best way to store them, any tips? Thank you for the recipe!

Hi, I absolutely loved this recipe. Just a question, how much glaze do you put on each donut? When I followed the recipe I really only got enough to cover about 3 donuts and then I was only getting an oily coating on any donuts after that but the chocolate wasn’t sticking. I think I was putting more of a frosting than a glaze, maybe that’s why? I also didn’t want to add more chocolate chips because that would increase the points significantly. But thank you so much for the recipe! They’re so delicious!

Hi Brianna

Thanks so much for your comments and awesome review! The icing should be very thin and more of a thin glaze rather than a thick frosting. I recommend thinning the glaze out with additional skim milk to make it thin enough to just dip the tops of each donut!

Hope that helps!

I've made these twice and they're delicious! I baked them a tiny bit longer and that may just be my oven but mine needed 15 mins at 350F - just used the toothpick test to make sure they were done, cooled 5 minutes as per recipe and turned out of the donut pans onto a cooling rack to finish the cool down. Perfect. I used cashew milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips in the glaze because that's what I had on hand. Delicious! These are well worth 3SP and they satisfy the craving for a chocolate treat! Thank you Lindsay!
