Adorable and festive, these Candy Corn Chocolate Donuts are easy to bake and fun to eat!



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup chocolate milk
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the garnish:

  • 10 oz dark chocolate melting wafers (you may have some extra of this)
  • 10 oz white chocolate melting wafers
  • 6 oz yellow candy melts
  • 12 oz orange candy melts


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray donut pan (12 cavities) with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. For the donuts, mix dry ingredients in bowl. Beat in the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
  3. Fill each donut cavity about ¾ full (I use a ziploc with the corner snipped to do this neatly). Fills about 12 donuts.
  4. Bake donuts in 325 degree oven for about 11-14 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, remove from pan to cool completely before decorating.
  5. Decide how many "chocolate" candy corn donuts you will make, and how many regular. I did 6 of each. Start by dipping half of the doughnuts in the melted white chocolate (all the doughnuts will need this).
  6. Once that sets (about 10 minutes), dip the other side in the melted dark chocolate (for half) or spread the melted yellow chocolate on them.
  7. Now all 12 of your donuts need orange in the middle. My easiest trick for this was to spoon a dollop of melted orange on the donut then using an offset spatula spread it out.
  8. Allow donuts to set completely then enjoy! Best served within 2 days. Store in airtight container.
