  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp Dunkin' Donuts® Bakery Series Chocolate Glazed Donut Pre-pack Bag, brewed (and cooled to room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 3 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
Peppermint Mocha Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp Dunkin' Donuts® Bakery Series Chocolate Glazed Donut Pre-pack Bag, brewed
  • 2-4 Tbsp Dunkin Donuts® Extra Extra Creamer
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract (it's very strong, and a little goes a long way)
  • Crushed Peppermint Candies
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a donut pan with baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder together until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg, coffee, and half & half together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients. Mix until combined (batter will be fairly thick).
  4. Add in sour cream, vanilla extract, and canola oil; mix until well combined.
  5. Pour batter into greased donut pan, filling each donut cavity about 3/4 of the way full (this batter can make about 7-8 donuts).
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until the donut 'springs' back when touched. Allow to cool a few minutes before removing from the pan.
  1. In a bowl, mix powdered sugar and cocoa powder together. Add in coffee, and 2 Tbsp of creamer, and whisk until combined. If the glaze feels too thick, add in remaining creamer, 1 Tbsp at a time (I used 3 Tbsp, but I do prefer a thicker glaze).
  2. Add in peppermint extract, and mix until well combined.
  3. Dip each donut into the glaze, and top with crushed peppermint candies. Allow the glaze to set, about 10 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!
