My husband and older daughter love all things chocolate. Me? I am more of a vanilla girl. I made these chocolate donuts for them. I know most of my donut recipes can double for breakfasts, but this recipe is extra indulgent and better as a dessert. These chocolate donuts are almost like a brownie in donut form. I was excited to make these chocolate donuts because I got to break out my heart shaped donut pans. I bought them right after Valentine’s Day when they were 50% off.
Aren’t these chocolate donuts super cute? My kids loved them! These chocolate donuts are gluten free and vegan. 🙂
