Chocolate Oreo Sprinkle Donuts - I bet that got your attention, didn't it?! I believe donuts are supposed to have sprinkles - it just make them taste better! :) Of course, throw on some cookies, and you have a dynamite breakfast the whole family will love!
I bought some Oreo cookies the other day with the full intention of making a dessert with them. The problem is my mind is so full of ideas, just when I think I have a great recipe, another one pops in my head. These donuts sounded like the perfect way to fight the winter "blahs" .... don't you agree?
Chocolate Oreo Sprinkle Donuts
Yield: 12-15 donuts
For the donuts:
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
⅓ cup packed brown sugar
⅓ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
⅔ cup sour cream
⅔ cup buttermilk
1½ tsp. baking powder
1½ tsp. baking soda
½ cup cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
For the glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp. milk (more if needed to thin glaze)
2 tsp. vanilla
For the topping:
7 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease donut pans and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and both sugars. Add the egg, sour cream and buttermilk. Mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and flour. Gradually add to the wet ingredients.
Fill the donut pan cavities three-quarters of the way full. Bake for 9 minutes. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
After the donuts have cooled, whisk all of the glaze ingredients in a shallow medium bowl. Dip the donuts in the glaze. Sprinkle with Oreo cookies and sprinkles.
