Because who doesn’t love donuts right? Just in time for Halloween I’m bringing you the easiest way to wow your family & friends for breakfast. & believe me when I say this is one of the most dangerous recipes you’ll ever encounter… Once you find out how easy these donuts are to make yourself, things get scrumptious real fast. Now that you’ve been warned, keep reading to see how to put together this fanged surprise!
What’s the trick to making your own donuts at home the semi-homemade way? A can of biscuit dough & some oil for frying. No really- that’s it. See what I mean about dangerous? Now every time biscuit dough goes on sale, Ryan’s eyes light up with glee. Because donuts.
To make these monster donuts I use the food coloring I purchase here– it is super pigmented. You don’t need to use as much & it gives you a killer (get it?) color! I also used these chocolates for drizzling & happened to already have them in the pale green shade. These chocolates are SO brainless to get mixed correctly- all you need is the microwave & a heat safe dish. Feel free to decorate however you please but I liked this drizzled waves pattern especially. You can add eyeballs, sprinkles, & whatever your little heart desires.
- Peanut Oil
- 2 cans of Buttermilk Biscuit Dough
- For Icing:
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring or other flavoring
- food coloring
- In a deep pan or Dutch oven heat about 2 inches of peanut oil for frying to about 350 degrees.
- Lay out the biscuits & using a cutter remove the middle. Set aside the middles for donut holes!
- Fry each biscuit donut until golden on one side then flip with tongs. Cook until golden on the other side.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Mix together the icing ingredients + food coloring. Swirl each mostly cool doughnut into the micture & rotate your wrist for an even finish. Let set on a rack. The icing will even out for a lovely finish.
For the fangs…well haven’t we all seen these around? I feel like these are everywhere this time of year! I went with the glow in the dark option but really any coloring will work. To get them to stay securely make sure you push them as far down into the center of the donut as you can. They will move a bit higher because of the force & finally “rest” in a good place. After the icing is set up they really don’t budge until you eat the donut around them. Then you can wear them to do the chores & drive around the neighborhood obviously.
& there you have some impressively easy doughnuts to brighten up your Halloween! What are your favorite kind of treats for the season? Have you ever made biscuit donuts?
