Chocolate Donut Holes (munchkins)


Sure, making donuts at home is a bit more work than running out to the store, but the extra effort is worth it. These guys are almost obscenely chocolatey thanks to the addition of both cocoa powder and melted unsweetened chocolate. My coffee has finally met its soulmate.

What you will need

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups confectioners' sugar
