I find a lot of recipes I want to try. My Pinterest page will tell you that! Mini has been begging to make a run to Dunkin for a while now. I think she just wants a Coolatta, but she does love her donuts. She also loves her Oreo’s. When I saw this recipe, I was excited…
Last month, Aimee over at Shugary Sweets posted a “Cookies N Cream Donuts” recipe. Since I promised Mini we would bake today, I decided on these. Making the actual donut was pretty easy. It’s simply Grands biscuits fried in canola oil. I used the cap to my bottle of Bailey’s to cut the holes in the middle (yes I rinsed it out!) then let Mini make her own donut creation out of all the ‘holes’.
Mini stood near as I dropped the newly-formed donuts into the oil and fried them.. The first batch went in and came out okay. The second go-around (with Mini’s creation) ended up being slightly burnt. They fried so much faster than I thought! Mental note: Don’t watch time, just flip them next time.
The second batch 🙁
I loved the idea of the chocolate glaze and it was absolutely delicious! Aimee decorated her donuts so nicely, but I’m pretty sure her sous chef wasn’t a hyped 6-year-old 🙂
Mini was just so excited, I had to calm her down (or at least attempt to)..
First, you dip in the chocolate, then add the melted chocolate bar and sprinkle with crushed Oreos.
Oddly, the only platter I have that is not Christmas-themed was a football (anyone who knows me is probably either shaking their head right now or just laughing). So here is my platter and Mini’s finished creation..
I am not a food photographer by any means and the lighting in my dining room is horrible, so I hope these next pics get the point across. I did the chocolate dipping and let Mini do the melted chocolate and crumbs..
Those were the first six. The next three Mini made special for her Father (read: lots of Oreo crumbs).
I think we did a good job. Next time, I want to try the Apple Pie variety Aimee also has on her site. I’m not a big fan of chocolate donuts but she has that as well. Head over to her site and check this and other recipes out!
My sous chef and I love baking together and I will keep you posted on our other baking adventures 🙂
