These Gluten-Free Chocolate-Covered Mini Doughnuts are baked and dipped in rich, dairy-free dark chocolate! They're vegan, allergy-free, so quick and easy to make! Only 7 ingredients needed for this fun, kid-friendly donut dessert and nostalgic copycat recipe of Hostess chocolate frosted Donettes!




  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all the doughnut ingreindts (minus the chocolate chips) and mix to combine and form a smooth cake batter.
  3. Fill 2 non-stick, greased 12-count mini donut pans with the batter.
  4. Bake the doughnuts for about 6-7 minutes, remove and flip them out of the pan to cool on a wire rack.
  5. While they cool, melt the 2 bags of chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave on 30 second increments, stirring each time, until melted.
  6. Dip each doughnut into the melted chocolate, using two forks to allow excess chocolate to drip off.
  7. Let the coated mini doughnuts dry and harden on wax paper before eating and storeing in an airtight container at room temperature.
