You could definitely say we're S'mores obsessed around here. I've made muffins, french toast, milkshakes, creme brulee and now donuts! I found the recipe in Sara Mellas' Easy Baked Donut cookbook, it's one of many that I've marked to try.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek! I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.
The base donut recipe has graham cracker crumbs along with all of the regular ingredients. I got 12 full size donuts and 12 minis out of one batch of batter. Yes, one of the minis is missing, it's called quality control ;) The minis cooked in about 7 minutes, the full size in about 13.
I used my kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows because it's fun. You can also do them under the broiler, just watch them carefully so that they don't burn.
I hope you're enjoying #SummerDessertWeek as much as I am, my fellow bloggers are sharing some awesome recipes! Don't forget to enter for your chance to win one of the great prizes from Dixie Crystals and Circulon down below.
- 4 ounces semi sweet chocolate
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 Tablespoon canola oil
- 1/2 cup packed Dixie Crystals light brown sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs (room temperature)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup sour cream (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup milk (room temperature)
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows, for topping
- Heat the oven to 350º, spray donut pans with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together butter, oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla, sour cream and milk.
- Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and soda, salt and cinnamon. Whisk until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
- Spoon batter into piping bag and fill donut pans a little over 3/4 full.
- Bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 13 mins or until the donut tests clean with a toothpick.
- Let cool in pans for 10 mins, then move to a rack to cool completely.
- Add chocolate and butter to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, just until chocolate softens. Add cream, then microwave for an additional 20 to 30 seconds, just until the cream bubbles.
- Gently stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy. If there's any unmelted chocolate, microwave for another 10 seconds, stirring after each time.
- Dip tops of donuts into ganache, letting the excess drip off, then place onto a baking sheet. Press on 6 or 7 marshmallows.
- Place sheet into the freezer to help the ganache set up, about 15 mins.
- Remove donuts from freezer. Using a kitchen torch, toast the marshmallows.
