Chocolate Doughnut Glaze


So I had experimented with making doughnuts for the first time ever the other day. I made Gluten Free Apple Cider Doughnuts and while they were awesome in their own right I wanted to dip them in chocolate just to see if they could taste even better. Yeah, it was taste-bud overload!

Chocolate Doughnut Glaze

Glazes 2 dozen doughnuts


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup or honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar


  1. Combine butter, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla in medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until butter is melted.
  2. Decrease the heat to low, add the chocolate, and whisk until melted.
  3. Turn off heat, add the powdered sugar, and whisk until smooth.
  4. Place the mixture over a bowl of warm water and dip the doughnuts immediately.
  5. Allow glaze to set for 30-60 minutes before serving.
