Mini Chocolate Donuts

I made these mini chocolate baked donuts for a baby shower, and they turned out very yummy. I like the chocoate ones better than the pumpkin, but it's mostly because of the chocolate glaze on top. It's delicious and definitely my favorite part!
I'm lucky enough to have a donut maker, but you could also bake these in a donut pan.
I found this recipe HERE.

 Chocolate Donuts

3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
3 TBS Cocoa
1/2 TSP Baking Soda
1/4 TSP Baking Powder
1/4 TSP Salt
1/4 Cup Milk
3 TBS Vegetable Oil
1 Egg
1/2 TSP Vanilla
1/4 Cup Hot Water

Chocolate Glaze
1/4 Cup Melted butter
2TBS Cocoa
1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
1-3 TBS Hot Water
Sprinkles To Top (Optional)

Instructions
Turn on your donut maker. (or preheat oven to 350 and slightly grease a donut pan)
In the bowl of an electric mixer or a large mixing bowl combined flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then add in sugar.
Mix in milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla mix until smooth.
Slowly stir in hot water until completely combines. Batter will be thin.
Fill a piping bag with your batter. A round tip will be helpful, but I love to use Wilton’s new batter tip. It allows you to squeeze out batter without it dripping at all – mess free!
Lightly grease your donut maker (or donut pan). Quickly squeeze batter into each cavity until full. Donuts will begin to bake and rise so you’ll want to work quickly. If your a bit slow you can always fill just half the cavities at a time.
Let them bake in donut maker for 7 minutes (add a few extra minutes if baking in the oven).
Gently pop them out with a fork, lay them on a wire rack to cool. Repeat steps 6-8 until your batter is gone.
In a small bowl mix together cocoa and powdered sugar. Add in melted butter and vanilla then stir until fully combined.
Slowly add in hot water one TBS at a time until you get a nice dipping consistency.
Dip cooled donuts into the glaze and place back on the cooling rack, it helps to place a piece of wax paper underneath to contains the mess.
Dip half of your donuts, add sprinkles, then repeat with the other half.
