Ingredients

For the Donuts:

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips or chunks

Directions/Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate, smaller bowl, stir to combine the buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and use a rubber spatula to gently fold the ingredients together.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the donut tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. In the microwave or in a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips, butter, corn syrup, and vanilla. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Dip the donuts in and twirl slightly to coat; top with sprink
