Serves Makes 6 donuts

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup of coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua)
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons water
Pinch of salt
6 homemade or store-bought donuts
Chocolate sprinkles, for topping
Instant espresso granules, for topping


In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk the powdered sugar and cocoa powder together until combined. Add in the Kahlua, heavy cream, water and salt, and whisk until smooth.

Working one at a time, dip a donut into the glaze then hold it over the bowl for a few second to let any excess drip off. Flip the donut and place it glazed-side up onto a cooling rack placed over a cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest of the donuts.

While the donuts are still slightly wet, sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles and a little pinch of instant espresso powder.
