Grilled Donuts with Chocolate Drizzle

You know when donuts are served warm and the glaze melts and oozes all over as you sink your teeth into it? That’s what these grilled donuts are like.

Have you ever had a donut served warm? Like when it’s freshly made and the glaze oozes and melts in your mouth? Well that’s what these grilled donuts are like, except better.

When you grill donuts, the heat of the grill caramelizes the sugars on the outside of the donut. You end up with a donut that has a slightly crunchy outside with a soft, chewy inside.

We like to top our grilled donuts with a chocolate drizzle, but you can top them any way you like. Try a sugar glaze or a light sprinkle of powdered sugar.

So when you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, turn on the grill and make these grilled donuts.

Tip: Call these donuts healthy and eat them with a few strawberries or a banana.


  • Glazed doughnuts (from your favorite local shop)
  • Chocolate chips
  • Heavy cream


  • Preheat SABER® grill and side burner to medium heat.
  • Cut doughnuts in half or choose to leave whole. Place doughnuts on grill, flipping once.
  • Pour desired amount of semisweet chocolate chips into medium mixing bowl.
  • Heat at least 1 Tablespoon heavy cream in a saucepan on the side burner for every ounce of chocolate used. Once cream is heated through, carefully pour over chocolate chips, let sit for a few minutes, then gently whisk together until completely incorporated.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate over the grilled doughnuts and enjoy!
