These Rainbow Chocolate Glazed Yeast Donuts turned out good enough to make our little guy lick his lips and do the antsy pants dance in his high chair. He made a good mess of it too. Chocolate all over his face, bib, elbows and ears. We found some stray sprinkles in his hair and pant pockets too. How does he do that?

I used the KitchenAid 5-Quart Stand Mixer to whip these together.



  1. Bread Flour – 2 3/4 cups, plus more for dusting
  2. Instant Yeast – 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp.)
  3. Granulated Sugar – 3 Tbs
  4. Room Temperature Unsalted Butter – 4 tablespoons
  5. Egg Yolks – 3
  6. Salt – 1/2 tsp.
  7. Cinnamon – 2 tsp.
  8. Nutmeg – 2 tsp.
  9. Vanilla extract – 1 1/2 tsp
  10. Warm Whole Milk – 1/2 tsp.
  11. Coconut oil, for frying


Chocolate Glaze

  1. Nutella – 3 Tbs.
  2. Whole Milk – 2 Tbs.
  3. Vanilla – 1 tsp.
  4. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – 2 Tbs.
  5. Powdered Sugar – 3/4 c.
  6. Sprinkles for magic!



  1. Place 1 thru 3 in bowl and mix until it starts to bubble.
  2. Add 4 thru 9 in mixing bowl and mix together.
  3. Place mixer on “knead” and let it roll for 1 minute.
  4. Flour surface, roll out dough and cut out donuts.
  5. Let them rise for 30 minutes or so.
  6. Warm coconut oil to about 390ºF and fry donuts until golden brown on each side.
  7. Pat excess oil and cool before glazing / sprinkling.

    Yum! These look so delicious and so fun! I want to make them, but I’m afraid I would end up making them all the time!
