Mexican Chocolate Glazed Donuts

Mexican chocolate is one of my favorite flavors of, well, anything. Every spring my local grocery store comes out with a specialty ice cream that they call Mexican Chocolate and every winter I scour the shelves for Mexican Hot Chocolate. That’s why I decided to try to come up with a donut that would embody the flavor that I’ve grown to love so much. These Mexican Chocolate Glazed Donuts are a perfect combination of that sweet chocolate and cinnamon with just a hint of heat. This is a treat your family will not be expecting, and I guarantee you’ll soon love it as much as I do. Enjoy!

How To Make Mexican Chocolate Glazed Donuts:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon).

In a medium bowl, beat one egg, then combine all wet ingredients (heavy whipping cream, greek yogurt, melted butter, vinegar, vanilla extract).

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until evenly distributed.

Pour batter into a piping bag, then pipe into 12-count mini donut pan (non-stick) until each donut is halfway filled.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes.

While that is baking, combine all glaze ingredients (powdered sugar, hot water, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne). Stir well and set aside.

Once donuts have cooled at least five minutes, drizzle with the glaze. Top with pecan halves and raw sugar, then serve. Enjoy!

Pro Tip:

The small amount of cayenne won’t change the flavor of the glaze, but it adds just a hint of heat with each bite. It gives these donuts a little something extra that people won’t be expecting. That being said, if your family or friends are sensitive to heat you should remove the cayenne. These donuts will still be delicious, they just won’t have that extra hint of heat. Enjoy!
