EASY 15-MINUTE CHOCOLATE GLAZED DONUTS

Super simple to make & outrageously delicious, these Easy Chocolate Glazed Donuts are a hit! Starts with store-bought dough and a lovely homemade glaze. Easy 15-Minute Chocolate Glazed Donuts - Butter With A Side of BreadOur family has always enjoyed donuts and I’ve been making variations of these for years. They’re so simple to make and this chocolate glaze is classic. I love that it’s smooth and glossy, but that it sets up as well. Be sure to watch the video on how to make these donuts, as well as a couple other variations we love- 15-Minute Maple Bars and 15-Minute Pumpkin Spice Donuts.

Easy 15-Minute Chocolate Glazed Donuts

  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 2-3 TBSP milk
  • 1 TBSP corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted chocolate chips
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups canola oil, for frying
  • 1 8-ct package refrigerated biscuit dough

Pour 2 cups of canola oil into a medium sized saucepan and begin heating on medium-low heat (I set mine at 4.)

Open the biscuit dough and separate. To make bars, gently stretch the biscuits into an oblong shape, as opposed to the round shape they come in. To make regular circle donuts, separate each biscuit and cut out a small circle in the center of each biscuit using a biscuit cutter, or a soda bottle cap.

Combine butter, milk and corn syrup in a small bowl. Whisk in melted chocolate chips and powdered sugar until smooth. (I melted my chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, then 10 second intervals until completely smooth. Remember to not over cook chocolate or it will seize!) Glaze will set up, so return it to the microwave if needed to soften and whisk smooth again.

Check the temperature of the oil using a meat thermometer– it needs to read 350 degrees F. Increase heat gradually if necessary.

Once oil is ready, drop donuts in and let cook for about 2 minutes, then turn and cook an additional 2 minutes on the other side. This process of cooking the doughnuts goes very fast, so have a paper towel covered plate ready to set the bars on when cooked. Bars should be a nice golden brown.

Let donuts cool for a few minutes, then whisk the glaze to make sure it’s smooth enough to dip each bar. Dip the bar, then immediately turn glaze side up on a cooling rack.

Repeat this process until all bars are fried and glazed. They’re best eaten within an hour, but even the next morning they’re amazing!

  1. […] Our family has always enjoyed donuts and I’ve been making variations of these for years. They’re so simple to make and this pumpkin glaze is perfect for this time of year. You can find the Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix on the baking aisle of most grocery stores in Fall. I got mine at Walmart. Be sure to watch the video on how to make these donuts, as well as a couple other variations we love- 15-Minute Maple Bars and 15-Minute Chocolate Glazed Donuts. […]
