Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Donuts

I received product from Forte Chocolates to help in creation of my #Choctoberfest recipe, but all opinions are my own.

When my selection of chocolate arrived from Forte Chocolates, I immediately knew I wanted to pair the dark chocolate bar with strawberry somehow. I have a serious cake mix addiction, I always have several boxes on hand, and they're great for making baked donuts.

I mixed the cake according to the package directions, and then poured it into a pastry bag.  I filled 2 mini donut pans and 2 full size donut pans.  The minis baked in 8 to 10 minutes, the full size around 13 to 15.  My pans are nonstick, but I spray them anyway.

There's really nothing better than the smell of melting chocolate!  Dark chocolate is my absolute favorite, and if you use the code CHOCTOBERFEST2018 at https://www.fortechocolates.com/,  you can buy 3 bars and get one FREE! I use a tiny bit of oil and melt it in the microwave.

I hope you've enjoyed #Choctoberfest as much as I have! Be sure to enter for your chance to win the prize package from Forte Chocolates and our other awesome sponsors via the rafflecopter below the recipe.  Information on the prize package can be found here.

Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Donuts
1 pkg Strawberry Cake Mix ( I used Pillsbury)
3 eggs
1 cup water
1/2 cup oil
2 Forte Chocolates 71% Dark bars
1t Vegetable or canola oil
Sprinkles, optional

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, eggs, water and oil.  Pour into a piping bag.  Spray donut pans with nonstick spray.  Pipe batter into pans, filling them about halfway. For minis, bake 8 to 10 minutes, for full size 13 to 15 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Melt chocolate with oil in microwave.  Dip donuts into chocolate, flip them to coat the other side, then place on a rack to allow the excess to drip off.  Add sprinkles if desired.
