Servings: 10 to 12 servings
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

Peanut oil
1   can store-bought biscuits
1   (4 ounce) bar sweet chocolate (recommended: Baker’s German’s)
1/2 ounce (1/2 square) unsweetened chocolate
1   stick unsalted butter
3 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract





Preheat fryer with peanut oil to 350 degrees F. 

Separate pre-cut biscuits. Make a hole in the middle with your hand and sculpt dough into a doughnut shape. Place doughnuts into fryer and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flipping to fry both sides. Place doughnuts aside onto a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil. 

Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over very low heat. Stir in the sugar, alternating with the evaporated milk, blending well. Raise the heat to medium and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat and cook, stirring, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, about 8 minutes. Stir in the vanilla then remove the pan from the heat. 

Stick a fork through the doughnut holes and dip the doughnuts immediately into the chocolate mixture before the chocolate starts to cool. Place the doughnuts on a plate and serve when the chocolate on the doughnuts sets, about 5 minutes.

Love this recipe. What can I use in place of powdered sugar for a diabetic recipe?

I used this recipe to make doughnut holes to take to work. Instead of making the chocolate sauce, I rolled the doughnut holes in cinnamon and sugar. My co-workers preferred these to doughnut holes that someone else bought at Dunkin Doughnuts!!! They were easy to make and the outcome was fantastic!!!
