Doughnuts are everyone’s favorite office food. These homemade doughnuts start with refrigerated biscuits, then add a sweet glaze and crunchy Cocoa Puffs cereal for a fun and chocolatey punch.
cup powdered sugar
to 3 teaspoons milk
Oil for deep frying
can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk or original biscuits
cup Cocoa Puffs™ cereal
In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth, adding enough milk for desired glaze consistency. Cover; set aside.
Heat oil (2 to 3 inches) in deep fryer or heavy saucepan to 375°F.
Separate dough into 8 biscuits; cut hole in center of each. Fry biscuits and holes in hot oil 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Dip top of each doughnut and hole into glaze. Top with cereal. Serve warm.
Don't be afraid to deep-fry---it's easy! Just be sure to maintain the correct oil temperature so that the outside gets crisp and golden brown and the inside stays tender. One of the secrets of success is to fry the doughnuts in batches to keep from overcrowding the pan and causing a drop in the oil temperature.
