Steps to follow:

To make chocolate donuts at home the first thing is to prepare the donut mix; for this, we mix the yeast, milk and a little flour into a bowl and leave it to stand for about 15 minutes.

Then, we add the eggs, sugar, butter and a pinch of salt: stir all the ingredients and add flour as you stir so that the texture is softer.


When you have the chocolate donut mix prepared, you should let it rest in a cool place (not in the refrigerator) until you see that it has doubled in size; this process usually takes about 15 minutes. Then, stretch the dough on a flat surface leaving it, at most, roughly 2 inches thick.


When the dough is stretched, give it the shape of the chocolate donuts, for this we can use a glass and cut the dough with the help of this object to make it perfectly round; make the hole in the centre with a knife or with the help of a shot glass. Place dough on paper and leave to stand for another 15 minutes.


Then we fry the dough in a pan with a liberal amount of oil; fry on both sides and be careful not to damage their shape. When fried, you just have to cool them on a paper towel to help remove excess oil.


Now let's make the chocolate coating: for that, we need to melt the chocolate in a saucepan and mix it with the cream and butter. When we see that the texture begins to thicken, pour this mixture over the fried donuts and let cool to get crispy chocolate donuts.

Hello Alia! If you use baker's yeast then this recipe should be fine for a halal diet - you will need to get some help from an adult for the cooking process though as it could be dangerous!
