Super Easy Donut Holes

Cinnamon and Sugar Donut Holes 7

 I just got back Monday night from my friend Catherine’s bachelorette party. Good times in Texas! Overall I really loved it, but there was too little time to be able to take it all in. The one thing I really wanted to do was the food trucks (big surprise there) and I never did get the chance. Total bust! I wanted something BBQ and something sweet. I can just imagine that donut holes like these would have been delicious fresh from a food truck.

Luckily we know how to make donut holes at home!


This recipe was embarrassingly easy! Store bought biscuits, fried in a minute or less, then rolled in cinn-sugar. Can it get any tastier?

Well, yes it can. With dulce de leche dipping sauce of course! We buy the squeeze jar dulce de leche so that its always at the ready. :)


Here’s what you’ll need

Cut biscuits into quarters

Then form into balls, don’t need to be perfect

Fry until golden brown, about 40 seconds to 1 minute

Let the oil absorb from the donut holes on a paper towel lined plate

Roll around in cinnamon and sugar

Serve with dulce de leche dipping sauce
