Ingredients

Donuts:

  • 1 - 1/2 cups cake flour sifted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground Cocoa Pebbles Cereal grind, then measure
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon hot water optional

Topping:

  • 1/3 cup crushed graham crackers
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Pebbles Cereal
  • 1/3 cup mini marshmallow bits

Instructions

For the donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray donuts pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake 35 min., stirring after 15 min. Cool completely.
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, cocoa powder, sugar, ground Cocoa Pebbles, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Beat until just combined. Spoon donuts batter in a gallon-size plastic zip top bag. Cut off a 1/2 inch piece from one corner. Pipe into each doughnut cup.
  • Bake 7-9 minutes or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan 4-5 minutes before removing.

For the glaze:

  • In medium bowl, melt chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup on 50% power for 1 minute, stirring frequently until completely melted. If the glaze is too thick, stir in 1 teaspoon of hot water, stirring until the glaze is smooth. Use immediately to glaze donuts.

For the topping:

  • In a small bowl, combine the graham crackers, Cocoa Pebbles and Marshmallow bits. Sprinkle on top of glazed donuts and serve immediately. Makes 12 donuts.

Notes

Tip:
*Don't have a donut pan? Roll dough into balls and make donut holes that are easy to pop into your mouth.
*Use a large muffin pan and fill the well 1/2 full and make a solid donut.
*Cooking times may vary slightly when using these tips.
*Also makes great muffins!
