S’mores Mini Donuts

I am so excited to be a part of the 31 Days of Summer series hosted by my sweet friend McKenzie (you might remember her from this post).

Nothing says summer quite like S’mores, right? Right. Today I am excited to be sharing a fun little recipe that’s a real winner with the kids! And when I say winner I am really saying, “Hey, this recipe features miniature food and a hands-on experience for your little chef that will totally suck up an afternoon. Not to mention you will seem like the awesomest parent ever…marshmallow on chocolate topped with graham cracker and more chocolate?”

S'mores Mini Donuts Before we delve into this post much further, I need to reveal the full truth. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the behind-the-scenes on this one. Our S’mores adventure turned out to be a bit (or a lot) messy, but the delightfully delicious taste made up for the fact that marshmallow fluff may have stuck to everyone in the house. I am going to share a “fix” for that little issue a bit later, but for right now let’s just stick to the “how to” portion of this post mmmkay?

S’mores Mini Donut Recipe

smores mini donut recipeI have admitted before that sometimes I am a bit more Sandra Lee than Martha Stewart. If you’re not up for the chocolate donut recipe I am sharing, you can totally use a chocolate box cake mix. It provides a bit of a different consistency, but will totally work in a pinch!

Chocolate Donut Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Chocolate Donut Instructions

We used our mini donut maker (AWESOME!), but you can also bake these in the oven using a mini donut pan. If you’re using a pan, you will need to pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F and spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray (personally, I might add a bit of flour too).

Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add milk, egg, vanilla and butter into the dry mixture and beat until smooth.

Fill each donut cavity with batter (all of the way in the donut maker, half way in the pan). Bake as directed, or 12-14 minutes in the oven.

Donut Glaze Ingredients

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 7 oz. jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 package powdered sugar (add more as needed)
  • 1-2 tblsp. milk

Donut Glaze Instructions

Melt butter, marshmallow cream and vanilla in a double boiler (if you don’t have a double boiler use a heat safe mixing bowl over an inch of boiling water). Gradually add sugar and then milk for desired consistency.

I cannot tell a lie. We made this little glaze creation up. It was SUPER sweet and REALLY sticky, but the kids LOVED it. Were I to do it over, I would use this Martha Stewart marshmallow frosting recipe and broil the tops for a more realistic S’mores look.

We garnished our little donuts with crushed graham crackers and mini chocolate chips.

  11. These look great! How many oz of powdered sugar did you use? And how many does this recipe make? Looking forward to making them!!

    • Sarah, I don’t know how many oz. for certain. I usually make my frosting to taste. I did use about half a small bag of powdered sugar though. The recipe made about two dozen mini donuts. xoxo Tauni
