S'mores Donuts

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganache

  • 8 oz. chocolate chips or callets
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

S'mores Donut Toppings

  • 4 graham cracker sheets crumbled
  • 32 mini marshmallows


S'mores Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray donut pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Melt butter. Set aside.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar in a medium bowl until combined. Set aside.
  • Whisk buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract in small bowl until combined.
  • Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and fold with a spatula until the mixture is thoroughly mixed together.
  • Add the butter to the mixture and stir until combined.
  • Fill a piping bag fitted with a round tip with donut batter. Fill each donut mold until it is ½ to 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes or until donuts spring back when pressed.
  • Let cool on cooling rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool fully.

Chocolate Ganache

  • Place chocolate, confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in medium bowl. Stir ingredients together and set aside.
  • Place cream and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir continually until mixture boils.
  • Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate mixture and let stand for one minute.
  • Stir mixture in concentric circles until smooth chocolate ganache forms.

S'mores Donut Assembly

  • Place 3 mini marshmallows on a skewer and roast with a kitchen torch. Remove marshmallows and set aside. Repeat for remaining marshmallows.
  • Dip cooled donuts halfway into chocolate ganache. Gently shake off extra chocolate. Top each with crushed graham crackers and marshmallows.


Though it is easier to pipe the S'mores Donut batter using a piping bag, a spoon works in a pinch.
