  • ½ cup (85g) chocolate chips
  • cup (79ml) heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup (67g) peanut butter
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • cup + 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (124g) all purpose flour
  • Chocolate sprinkles or chopped peanuts for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray. Alternately, spray mini or regular sized muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Make the glaze first: heat heavy whipping cream to almost boiling (don't let it fully boil, once you notice a slight simmer it's done) on the stove or in the microwave. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit one minute, then whisk until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Stir together peanut butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, oil, and egg until smooth. Stir in baking powder and salt, then stir in flour.
  • Place batter in a large gallon size ziploc bag and cut off one tip. Pipe into donut pan.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan then remove. Glaze once cooled.
  • To glaze: dip donuts upside down in glaze. Sprinkle with nuts or sprinkles. Let set at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.



This makes a few more than one traditional donut pan. If you have more than 6 donuts, bake them, let them cool the 10 minutes then remove and refill the pan to bake the second set.
