We love making treats together as a family. Now that Spring is revving up, we will be attending a lot of church gatherings, BBQ’s and bridal showers. Of course I will be bringing treats to share to these events, and these Double Chocolate Doughnuts are the perfect thing.
I like to bring unique treats and dishes to gatherings. NO one want’s a million plate fulls of chocolate chip cookies. My kids and I like to try out new recipes, so this works out perfectly. I love anything that helps make the treat making process unique and easy. That’s just what Holstein Housewares has done. They have made these cute, easy to use treat makers for families. I have already tried the Heart Waffle Maker and we had so much fun making them for Valentines Day. They were even Red Velvet. Yum! This time we got the Holstein Housewares Doughnut maker. I needed to bring treats to a church gathering and the Double Chocolate Doughnuts were the perfect thing.

These treat makers make life so easy. All you have to do is whip up some batter, pour it into the maker and you’re done! I love it! The recipe book that comes with the maker is great. It has a lot of great recipes. We also tried the Vanilla Doughnuts too. They were so good!
These are so cute. They are like mini doughnuts.
The Holstein Housewares brand was born after identifying a need in the housewares industry for family-friendly fun and functional small kitchen appliances. The Holstein Housewares brand understood that the family needed more fun and functional small kitchen appliances. Each one of the Treat Makers makes a unique and delicious treat. They are high-quality Novelty Electrics. You can use them for all sorts of occasions. NO need to pre-heat or use an oven. That’s amazing in the Summer time. And the treats only take 7 minutes to make! I love helping my kids use these fun treat makers.
So here’s how you make the Homemade Double Chocolate Doughnuts.
Double Chocolate Doughnuts
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1/3 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips
In a medium bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer beat the butter until smooth. Add the sugar, eggs, vanilla and water and beat until well blended. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add to the wet mixture while the mixer is on until well incorporated. Plug in the Holstein Doughnut Maker and wait until the green light turns on.
Carefully open the maker and spray top and bottom with cooking spray. Pour enough batter into the cups until it reaches the top of the cup. (note: this is a picture of the vanilla batter)
Close the lid and cook for about 5-7 minutes. Carefully open the maker and remove the doughnuts with a bamboo skewer or plastic fork.Do not use metal objects to remove doughnuts. (This is the chocolate batter)
Let cool on a cooling rack.
Once cool, melt the chocolate chips according to package directions. Pour chocolate into a zip top bag and snip off a tiny bit of the bottom corner of the bag. Drizzle the chocolate over the doughnuts. Let harden then enjoy!
