Mini chocolate cake donut muffins

For some reason every Saturday morning I crave donuts. I eat relatively healthy during the week and try to workout a little bit each day but all bets are off on Saturdays. Whoever wakes up with the kiddos usually makes a big fun breakfast or goes out to get donuts, Kolaches, or breakfast tacos. Jon and I both favor those chocolate cake donuts and when I found this recipe on Pinterest, I was up for the challenge of making them. They don't require frying so they're automatically healthy right? Hehe. They were out of this world delicious and made such a fun little treat in the morning and after dinner for dessert.

Ingredients
*Muffins
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

*Glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

1. Stir butter and sugar in a bowl until combined.
2. Add egg, buttermilk, and vanilla until mixed
3. Add dry ingredients and stir until completely smooth
4. Scoop batter into a greased mini muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes
5. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from muffin tin
6. Meanwhile, stir glaze ingredients until smooth
7. Dip each muffin into the glaze, covering completely
8. Let the glaze dry for 20 minutes or until it hardens.
9. Enjoy!

These look AMAZING! I'm thinking about making them for our Super Bowl party (maybe add a little orange food coloring to the icing?)!
