DRUNKEN DONUTS

Ingredients:

1 cans of large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

3 cups of vegetable oil for frying

¼ cup alcohol (we used Honey Bourbon Whiskey and Rum Chata)

Directions:

Heat oil until 350 degrees

Lay out biscuits on a cutting board and cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit.

When oil is hot, gently add the raw biscuits to the hot oil. When browned (about 1 minute) flip to the other side and cook until browned (another minute or so).

Remove doughnut from the oil and rest on a paper towel to drain. (about 30 seconds).

Using a pastry brush, brush each hot doughnut with the Honey Bourbon Whiskey.

Optional: spoon on boozy doughnut glaze

Optional: dip in a boozy chocolate Ganache dipping sauce

Directions for Making the Boozy Doughnut Glaze

2 cups of powdered sugar 4-6 tbsp alcohol (recommended: bourbon, rum, rumchata)

1. In a bowl, add 2 cups of powdered sugar and add 3 tbsps of alcohol and stir. You want the mixture to be thick enough so that it doesn’t slide off of the doughnut. Add more alcohol is needed for desired thickness/thinness.

2. Spoon glaze over doughnuts and enjoy!

Directions for Making the Boozy Chocolate Dipping Sauce
