Mini Chocolate Oreo Donuts

In honor of Oreos turning 100 this year, I concocted these beauties as my contribution to the festivities.  Dunkin Donuts may have put crushed Oreos on top of their donuts, but I put crushed Oreos inside as well.

I made these in my Babycakes donut maker, but you can also make them in the mini donut pans in the oven.
They came out so moist and flavorful.  I think mine are better than Dunkin Donuts and they are baked, so that means healthier.  Well, wishful thinking anyway.

Cook Time: 4-5 minutes per batch
Keywords: bake dessert oreos chocolate donuts
Ingredients (about 30 mini donuts)
    For the donuts
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup cocoa
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 cup crushed Oreo cookies
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    For the glaze
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 4 tablespoons milk
    For the toppings
    • 1/2 cup crushed Oreo cookies
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
    Instructions
    For the donuts
    Using a food processor, crush the Oreo cookies until you yield 1 cup of mixture.
    In a medium bowl mix the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and crushed Oreo cookies.
    Next add the egg, buttermilk, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla. Using a hand mixer, blend until mixture is smooth.
    Fill a piping bag or a Ziplock bag (with tip cut off), with the batter and fill each donut reservoir of your donut maker with about 2 tbsp of batter.
    Bake for about 4-5 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of donut comes out clean.
    Place hot donuts on cooling rack with a wax paper underneath and prepare the glaze.
    For the glaze
    In a small bowl mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. You want the consistency to be runny, not thick.
    Dip each donut in the mixture and flip it around by hand or with a fork until the whole donut is covered. Then place back on the cooling rack until the glaze is dry.
    For the toppings
    While glaze is still tacky, sprinkle donuts with crushed Oreos and top with powdered sugar.
    Note:
    If you are using a mini donut pan, bake your donuts in the oven at 425ºF for 4-6 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle of donut comes out clean.
