In a separate bowl, beat the melted butter and sugar until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition.

Mix in the cream and extract until smooth.

Pipe the batter into the donut pans and bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. The donuts are ready when they bounce back after being touched.

Allow to cool in the pan for five minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

When the donuts are cool, make the glaze by beating together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, peppermint extract, and heavy cream until smooth.

Dip the top of each donut in the glaze and placed back on the cooling rack to set.
