Ingredients

For the donuts

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • cooking spray

For the frosting

  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons heavy cream divided use
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 cup white chocolate chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a donut pan with cooking spray.
  • Place the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Add the Eggland's Best eggs, butter, milk and vanilla extract to the bowl. Stir until smooth.
  • Place the batter in a piping bag or freezer bag. Snip off the tip of the bag with scissors.
  • Pipe the batter into the wells of the pan. Reserve the remaining batter for the second batch.
  • Bake the donuts for 10 minutes. Let the donuts rest for 3 minutes, then remove them from the pan and place on a cooling rack.
  • Wipe the pan with a paper towel and coat with cooking spray. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  • Let all of the donuts cool completely.
  • Place 1/4 cup of cream in one bowl and 3 tablespoons of cream in a second bowl. Microwave the 1/4 cup of cream for 30 seconds and 3 tablespoons of cream for 20 seconds.
  • Pour the semisweet chocolate into the bowl with 1/4 cup cream and white chocolate into the other bowl. Cover each bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Let the bowls sit for 3 minutes, then uncover and stir until smooth. You may need to microwave the bowls for another 15-20 seconds if chocolate isn't completely melted.
  • Dip each donut into either the semisweet chocolate or white chocolate. Top with sprinkles.
  • Let the donuts sit for about 15 minutes until the frosting has started to firm up, then serve.
