  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • sprinkles chopped peanuts or toasted coconut, optional



  • Preheat your oven to 325°. Prep your pan with nonstick oil spray (wipe out any excess) or lightly grease with coconut oil.
  • In a sauce pan, place the broken pieces of chocolate and the stick of butter. Melt over low heat, stirring often. Once melted, remove off of the heat and add the sugars, stir and set aside.
  • Next sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and set aside.
  • To the slightly warm chocolate/sugar mixture add in one egg at a time stirring after each additional egg. Then add spoonfuls of the flour/cocoa mixture and stir with a spatula until smooth.
  • Pour batter into prepared doughnut pan and bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes or until a tester comes out with a trace amount of batter. It shouldn't be runny.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then remove to a wire rack and prepare the glaze.


  • In a medium sized bowl lightly whisk the powdered sugar to break up any clumps. Add in the peanut butter, vanilla and whole milk. Stir until silky smooth.
  • Dunk the cooled doughnuts into the glaze and turn glaze-side-up back onto the wire rack. Top with chocolate sprinkles, chopped peanuts or toasted coconut if desired.
