S’Mores Chocolate Donut

Alas I have another s’mores donut for you.  This one is much more decadent.  You may remember my Donut S’More Sandwich.  You know, the glazed donut embracing sweet milk chocolate and gooey marshmallows????  Well this one is better!

Today is National S’Mores Day.  Don’t know who decides these things.  Is there a committee?  Or was this one left up to the Girl Scouts??  Guess I don’t care.  Why not celebrate the s’more!  It’s about as American as apple pie, coney dogs and funnel cakes!

I like this donut.  It’s moist and big on chocolate.  It tastes like cake and boy do I like cake.  I dipped  my s’mores donut in a sugary glaze first, just to make it feel safe.  Then I dunked it in the richest chocolate glaze….ever.  Of course it wouldn’t be a s’mores donut without a few more key ingredients.  Bring on the graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow bits!!  Ta da!  Now you have s’mores donut!!

I hope you  enjoy this “holiday”.  For many of us, s’mores are a bit of nostalgia, a reminder of our youth.   For me, they represent times with my kids.  The summer nights we spent by the campfire, watching fireflies, telling ghost stories and roasting marshmallows for s’mores.   With this little gem of a donut, we can declare it s’mores day any day we want!

Ingredients
  • Donut
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 cup graham crackers crumbled
  • 1 cup marshmallow bits
  • Glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 4 T milk
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ milk
  • 1 T corn syrup
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. For the donuts, combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add in egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Mix well. I did this by hand and the consistency was perfect. Fill donut cavities about ¾ full. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 11 minutes. When done, remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5-7 minutes.
  2. When donuts are slightly warm, quickly dip in the first glaze. Follow up with chocolate glaze and toppings.
  3. For the white glaze:
  4. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. You want it to be somewhat thin as this is just the first glaze.
  5. For the chocolate glaze:
  6. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, milk , corn syrup and vanilla stirring until butter has melted. Add in chopped chocolate stirring with a whisk. When chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth, remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar. Dip donuts while glaze is warm.
