Fall TV: Cocoa Crunch Donuts

As prepared by tbspSusan,

There’s no disputing that donuts are a favorite office treat.


Most people have to bring donuts to work. We get to make donuts at work. How awesome is that?

Trix-covered donuts

In the spirit of solidarity with office workers everywhere, this Cocoa Crunch Donuts recipe was inspired by shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation. Both had season premieres this past week, but if you haven’t had a chance to learn who replaced Michael as boss or whether Leslie will run for office – there’s still time to watch them online.

Fall TV - The Office

Let’s return to the top item on today’s agenda: Making homemade donuts. It is easier than you think! All you need is a can of refrigerated biscuit dough and some oil for deep frying. Start by cutting out a hole in the center of each biscuit. (Save the holes. That’s where donut holes come from!) Heat oil in a deep fryer or saucepan and fry the donuts and holes until golden brown.

Fall TV - Parks and Recreation

Now you’re ready for the fun part – decorating the donuts. Our favorite way to top donuts is to add powdered sugar glaze and a crunchy cereal topping. Add Cocoa Puffs for a chocolaty punch, or top with Trix cereal for fruity fun color.

Easy, fast and fun – with plenty of time leftover for those TPS reports!
