Make crazy-easy little donuts to serve with your milkshakes. This treat takes the cake!
You know the whole coffee with donuts thing?
Well, that classic combo just got a majorly delicious upgrade.
Here’s the thing – I actually don't drink coffee. I am 20 years old and have never had a full cup. I just cannot seem to guzzle the stuff down like most people.
Maybe it’s because I have only ever tried black coffee, but the funny thing is that I love coffee-flavored sweets. Coffee and chocolate are my favorite pairing (well, so is peanut butter and chocolate, but ya know, who doesn’t love that?).
Last year I made a chocolate pumpkin spice latte for my blog and my readers went crazy for it! Granted it was probably more pumpkin spice, chocolate and whipped cream than coffee, but still, coffee flavored sweets are the best. I even put it in my chocolate cakes!
So when the thought of a coffee and donut milkshake popped into my head, I knew I had to try it. It’s coffee ice cream, blended with donuts and chocolate fudge sauce. It's SO GOOD, you will love it.
So here’s how you make it.
First, you need to make the donuts. Technically, we are making cronuts, a cross between a donut and croissant, but trust me – much better than your average donut.
Start with a Pillsbury crescent dough sheet.
Unroll the crescent sheet.
Fold it in half.
Cut out as many circles as you can with a round cookie cutter. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Cut out the centers of the donuts.
Heat a pan of oil to 350ºF and fry the donuts until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain.
While the donuts cool, mix the frosting.
Dip each donut in the glaze.
Leave two donuts decoration-free for the milkshakes, then top the rest with sprinkles.
To make the milkshakes, add the ice cream, 2 donuts, 2 tablespoons fudge, and milk to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Drizzle each glass with the remaining hot fudge sauce. Divide the milkshake mixture between the glasses.
Garnish with a donut and serve right away!
