A yummy crunchy treat that’s so easy anyone and everyone can make it! These 3-ingredient chocolate crunch doughnuts are perfect for when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t feel like baking or making anything too complicated.

3-Ingredient Chocolate Crunch Doughnuts

This recipe is probably the most popular recipe on my blog to date. I think the reason is that they’re so easy and only call for 3 ingredients. They’re also really easy to adjust – you can add anything to them and you can shape them however you like. I love using doughnuts mould, but you can use any moulds you have on hand, or even use a cake tin and cut them up into bars/squares. 

These chocolate crunch doughnuts do remind me of a crunch chocolate bar, but a dark version, which in my opinion is so much better! I used 70% dairy-free dark chocolate, but it will work with any chocolate you prefer. I usually make them with quinoa pops, but I’ve also made them with protein crispies, puffed brown rice and rice krispies. I’m obsessed with chocolate treats that are also crunchy. They’re so addictive and satisfying!

I’m not a big fan of doughnuts, mainly because they’re way too oily and sickly sweet. I do however LOVE using doughnut moulds to make anything but doughnuts. Like these chocolate chip doughnut cookies, or rose chocolate doughnuts, which are more like doughnut shaped mini cakes. I thought it would be a fun idea to use a doughnut mould for this recipe too. Mini doughnut moulds work best as I feel regular sized doughnut moulds are too big. If regular size doughnut moulds is all you have available, you can still use them and cut the doughnut in half, although they won’t be as cute.
