Chocolate Filling for Donuts


Chocolate Filling

Donuts get their chocolate filling before frying.


This filling could also be used for cupcakes or muffins before baking.

Makes filling for 8-10 donuts.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1/2 c chocolate chips or 3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 T cream or half and half
  • 1/4 tsp flavoring such as orange or almond (optional)


Melt the chocolate chips with the cream over low heat. Stir in optional flavoring. Pour into a shallow dish and refrigerate until the chocolate has set up enough to form into balls with your hands.

The balls should contain 1-2 teaspoons of filling.

Place filling on jelly donut halves, cover with a second half. Pinch dough circles closed. Let donuts rise 10-20 minutes and fry in hot oil.
