  • Step 5

    Place wax paper under a wire rack to collect any drippings for an easy cleanup. Then, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add milk, corn syrup, and chopped chocolate, stirring slowly to allow chocolate to melt completely.

  • Step 6

    Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar. Immediately dip the top of each donut into the icing and transfer to a wire rack. Let cool for 10 minutes.

  • Step 7

    In a stand mixer, whip cream until peaks are just starting to form. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Transfer whipped cream to a pip- ing bag, and pipe onto the tops of the cooled chocolate layer.

  • Step 8

    Sprinkle the top of each donut with chopped peppermints and serve immediately. These donuts do not store well and so should be eaten fresh.
