    I think in that context it's a chocolate doughnut, covered in chocolate, perhaps with extra chocolate! Chocolate overload!

    (Note: please ignore the word "porn" in that link. It's being used sarcastically!)

    Re: blackout

    So you suggest that I should translate it as if it's just "chocolate doughnut" and kind of ignore "blackout"?

    Thanks.

    I'd never heard the phrase until you posted the question. Of course, I know the word "blackout" and I can see why they have used it to describe this kind of doughnut, but as far as translation goes, I'm not sure whether you should leave it in or not. If any readers have never seen those doughnuts, they won't know what it means either!
