Homemade Donuts! (Chocolate and Powdered Sugar)

Make amazingly scrumptious donuts from home! Cheap, easy and scrumptacular! No need for a donut making machine if you've got oil and a lg pot or deep fryer your good to go! There is not much like a freshly deep chizzled donut, and I bet you miss them now that Crispy Cream is out of business! Well I'm going to help you get your fix ;) I have never been much of a fan of the frosting type glaze so I am going to show you how to make one with real chocolate. Side note: I use to work for Dunkin Donuts in my teens, if you would like more donut recipes let me know in the comments section, always love to hear from my readers!

What you'll need:

Pack of Pillsbury jumbo biscuits
Hershey chocolate bar
Powdered sugar
A deep fryer or large pot
Oil (recommend buying a large jug from GFS, Costco or Sam's Club
Bottle cap from soda bottle

Preparing and cooking:

Preheat deep fryer to 350F, if using a lg pot with oil you do not need that much oil, around 3 inch's thick, (enough for the donuts to float on top) medium to medium high heat
Open your biscuits and separate them
Press them down a bit to flatten (I like to use the bottom of a plate for this), you want them about about a 1/2 inch thick
Take your bottle cap and place it in the center of the biscuit, press down, remove doe (You've just created a donut hole!)
Place them in the deep fryer or pot with oil and keep a close eye on them, use tongs to flip, will not take long and you will know when there done when they are golden brown.

When your donuts are done place them on a plate on top of paper towel, let them cool for a bit then pat them over a bit with paper towel.

For chocolate glaze:
(The taste of these is heaven sent! Must try to understand.)

Take your Hershey chocolate bar and place it in a bowl, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute (need to check on this frequently, every microwave is different) heat until melted.
spread your melted chocolate over the top of them with a rubber spatula.
Add sprinkles etc if you'd like!

For powdered donuts:
Sprinkle your powdered sugar over the donuts

Now THAT'S Scrumptious!
