Chocolate Dipped Doughnuts with Sprinkles

These chocolate-dipped doughnuts are a must-have in every baker’s kitchen since they are light, fluffy, and delicious.

Chocolate doughnuts are cooked and glazed with a delicious buttery chocolate frosting. You’ll make these again and again, and they’re even better than store-bought!

When I was younger, chocolate doughnuts for breakfast were a big treat.

My family has always enjoyed eating doughnuts, but purchasing them is not always feasible. Thankfully, these homemade doughnuts are significantly less expensive and a lot faster than piling everyone into the car and traveling to the local bakery.

This doughnut recipe has been in my hands for a few years, and I’ve experimented with various fun variations, but nothing beats a classic like chocolate glazed.

Sometimes I make smaller versions of these doughnuts for my kids and they put them on their fingers and eat them a little at a time, they call them rings doughnuts.

These chocolate-glazed doughnuts are the best thing you’ll ever bake. They need a little more effort, but they are definitely worth the effort.

We’ve tried a few different flavours, but nothing beats a classic like chocolate glazed.

This easy recipe for moist and buttery doughnuts will quickly become a favourite breakfast treat.

Dip them in chocolate glaze and top them with sprinkles; you’ll want to eat more than one!

Do you need a tried-and-true doughnut recipe? This batch of chocolate-glazed doughnuts has it all. A fantastic dough texture and delectable chocolate icing made with real chocolate.

It is critical to use real chocolate instead of chocolate syrup or any other artificial flavour. It’s a little more expensive, but the flavour is so good that it’s well worth it.

If you’re new to baking doughnuts at home, don’t panic; this recipe is as simple as it gets!

Calories 285 kcal



  • 250 g Strong White Bread Flour
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 7 g Instant Yeast 1 Sachet
  • 70 g Butter Unsalted
  • 75 ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs


  • 100 g Dark Chocolate
  • 30 g Butter Unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 50 g Chocolate or Rainbow Sprinkles


For the doughnuts

  • Add the flour, sugar, yeast and 1 tsp salt in the bowl and mix until combined.
  • Then gradually add the egg, milk and butter.
  • Gently mix until the dough comes together. The dough should become soft, elastic and sticky. (See Note 1)
  • Knead until you get a smooth dough.
  • Transfer the dough into lightly greased bowl.
  • Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Place the dough on a floured worktop and roll out into 1/2 inch thick sheet
  • Cut the dough using a doughnut cutter. (See Note 2)
  • Set the doughnuts aside on parchment paper. (See Note 3)
  • Cover and let the doughnuts rest for 30-60 minutes, until the doughnuts have increased in sized.
  • In a large separate deep pan, heat the oil to 180°C.
  • Gently put the doughnuts into the pan, make sure not to overcrowd.
  • Fry for about 3 minutes until puffed and golden.
  • Flip them over gently and fry for another minute or 2. You will need to hold them down with a spoon as they begin to float.
  • Remove from the oil and drain them

For the glaze

  • Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
  • Remove from the heat and gradually add the butter, milk and golden syrup, incorporating fully after each addition.
  • While still warm, dip the doughnuts in the glaze to coat the top.
  • Transfer to a plate and sprinkle over the chocolate or rainbow sprinkles.
  • Leave to set and then serve.


Note 1 – If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
Note 2 – Dip the cutter into flour in between cuts, so the dough doesn’t stick to the cutter.
Note 3 – Leave some space in between the doughnuts, the doughnuts will rise and you don’t want them to stick together.
