My baby loves to cook with me and this was a breeze for her and she is only 5. Great for that need a chocolate fix fast :) I baked these 3 different ways. 1. Donut maker (did great) 2. Bread (meatloaf pan) Did great also. 3. Mini-Muffin Pan Did the Best!!

How To Make misty d's rocky road mini donuts

  • 1
    If you do not have a donut maker.... I think these cooked best in the mini-muffin pan! Pre Heat oven to 325 degree and prepare a mini or regular muffing pan spraying with pam or bakers joy
  • 2
    In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar and eggs. Beat in the oil, cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in the water.
  • 3
    Once the mini donut maker has heated up, fill the donut maker with batter, close the lid and bake for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes. Don’t bake for too long or the donuts will over bake and be dry
  • 4
    Remove the donuts from the donut maker and place on a cooling rack
  • 5
    Place a sheet of wax paper or foil under the cooling rack
  • 6
    Heat the hot fudge sauce and dip each donut into the hot fudge sauce, and then place it back on the cooling rack.
  • 7
    In the sauce pan, combine the mini marshmallows and 4 Tbsp. of water. Heat on medium heat and stir until melted. Remove from heat and carefully add melted marshmallows to a piping bag or ziploc baggie.
  • 8
    Snip the end of the bag and drizzle the marshmallow cream over the donuts
  • 9
    Top each donut with mini marshmallows and crushed walnuts.

    We loved making these together! So easy for everyone to get involved with! Hubby even topped everything with boo-boo (Paisley) Use whatever pan you have they are good without being made in the donut maker also! I liked them best in the mini-muffin pan!!
