Equipment

Ingredients

Chocolate Peppermint Mochi Donuts

  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • cup whole milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp peppermint extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 4 oz dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup sweet rice flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 candy cane crushed, optional

Chocolate Ganache

  • 2 oz chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease 2 donut pans and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of melted butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, milk, vanilla extract, peppermint extract, salt, and the egg.
  • Add the last 3 tablespoons of butter and dark chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 10-20 second increments until the butter and dark chocolate melt completely. It should take about 45 seconds. Once melted, mix until you get a smooth texture.
  • Pour chocolate into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  • Sift sweet rice flour and baking powder into the bowl. Use a spatula to combine until you get a wet dough.
  • Spoon the dough into a pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Pipe the dough into the donut pans. I used a donut pan with donut molds that are 3 inches in diameter.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let donuts cool in the donut pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Once the donuts are cool, make your ganache. Add chocolate chips to a bowl. Heat heavy cream until bubbles start to form around the edges. The cream should be hot not boiling. Pour cream over the chocolate chips. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to soften the chocolate. Then mix until a smooth ganache forms.
  • Dip the donuts into the ganache. Top with crushed candy canes and serve.
