    • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder or coffee crystals
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    For the Chocolate Glaze

    • 3 tablespoons butter

    • 1 tablespoon corn syrup, light
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla

    Instructions

      For the Chocolate Donuts

      1. Preheat the oven to 375℉. Spray your Donut Panwith non-stick cooking spray.
      2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and stir to mix. In a small bowl, whisk the egg and add the milk and melted butter. Stir into the dry ingredients until smooth then add in the chocolate chips.
      3. Transfer the batter to a piping bag or a large baggie and snip off the corner. Pipe the batter into the pan filling each ring only half way.
      4. Bake the larger donuts for 6 to 8 minutes. If you're making Mini Donuts bake them for 5 minutes.
      5. When done, remove from the oven and let them sit for at least two minutes to set up. Invert the pan and let them cool completely. Add more cooking spray between each batch. It's faster to have two pans going.

      For the Chocolate Glaze

      1. Place the chocolate pieces and butter into a small sauce pan to melt. This could also be done in the microwave at 70% power for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the powdered sugar, corn syrup and vanilla. Add milk as necessary to thin the chocolate to a smooth consistency that is fluid, but not thin. If you add too much milk, add a tablespoon of powdered sugar to thicken it up.

      For the White Glaze

      1. Stir the ingredients together in a bowl. Add milk as necessary to thin the mixture to a smooth consistency that is fluid, but not thin. If you add too much milk, add a tablespoon of powdered sugar to thicken it up.
      2. Drizzle or spoon the glaze over the rounded part of the donuts. Allow the glaze to set before serving. You can add contrasting drizzle, as I did, or add sprinkles, more chocolate chip, or any other topping you'd fancy.
