Chocolate Dipped Biscuit Donuts

Sometimes I am just too lazy to run to the closest bakery to buy a dozen of donuts on the weekend. When I was in college I learned to be very frugal and used good ol' Goggle to find an easy donut recipe that I could whip up in my dorm room on my electric skillet. That was eight years ago [damn I feel old] and I am no longer pulling all-nighters to finish writing a 30 page research paper or speed reading to finish the weeks seminar book for the next day's discussion. Instead, I got three little humans to take care of and my two oldest always seem to want donuts on weekend mornings.

This recipe is easy and all you need are a few ingredients. I always keep a can of jumbo biscuits in the fridge and you can use powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate chips, or whip up a maple glaze to drizzle over them. My kids love chocolate donuts with sprinkles and sometimes we use or mini star cookie cutter to cut out mini donut holes. These donuts are delicious, inexpensive to make, and they don't take up a lot of time. 



Ingredients:
1 can of jumbo biscuits, any brand 
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup canola oil 
Sprinkles 

Directions:
1. Heat 1 cup canola oil on medium-high heat. While the oil heats, open the can of biscuits. 

2. Use a cookie cutter or poke a hole in the center of the dough with your fingers and set aside. 


3. Place the dough in the oil and cook until dough is golden brown, flip to cook the other side. When the dough is a beautiful golden brown remove from the oil and set on a paper towel or clean hand towel to cool. 


4. When the donuts are cool, pour 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute and stir with a spatula. If the chocolate needs more heat, heat it for 30 seconds and mix until smooth and creamy. Dip one side of the donut into chocolate and set aside. Repeat until all donuts are done.


5. Add sprinkles and let chocolate harden on the cooling rack. Serve with a cup of coffee or glass of milk. Enjoy! 


Thanks for stopping bye. Enjoy your day.
