You are only two ingredients away from these scrumptious donuts. That’s right, all you need is a can of biscuit dough and some bite-sized Milky Ways. In about 10 minutes you’ll be serving these up to the ooh’s and aah’s of your family and friends.
Canned biscuit dough is one of my very favorite “shortcut” ingredients, and I promise you will be amazed at how beautifully they fry up into delectable little donut holes. As delicious as they are by themselves, I think we can all agree that a donut hole stuffed with a Milky Way is probably going to be the best thing that happened to your week. And no one has to know that they’re not “from scratch.”
Milky Way-Stuffed Donut Holes
- 1 can (8-count) biscuits, separated
- 32 bite-sized Milky Way bars
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- Malted milk powder (optional, for coating)
- Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, to 350 F. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top.
- Cut each biscuit into quarters and roll each quarter into a ball.
- Working with one ball at a time, flatten it with your hand and place a Milky Way in the center. Pinch the sides to close and roll into a ball again. Place the ball on your wire rack and repeat with remaining ingredients.
- When the oil has reached the proper temperature, slowly lower the donuts, 8 at a time, into the pot. Turn it once or twice until golden brown, and use a slotted spoon to return to your wire rack. Repeat with the remaining donuts.
- Toss warm donuts in a bowl of malted milk powder if desired. Serve within one to two days.
