After a long night of dancing, what better way to send off your guests
than with something to nibble on… and who doesn’t love donut holes? (This darling idea was found on Ruffled.)
Donut Holes: (you can make your own or purchase from your favorite local donut shop)
-canned flaky biscuits
-frying oil (canola, vegetable etc…)
This is a simple delicious recipe and it tastes like a funnel cake!
Take biscuit dough out of the can. Pinch off a small piece of dough and
roll into a ball to make donut hole. Do this with the rest of the can.
Note, the donuts do expand in the grease, so don’t make them too big!
Fill your pot with at least 2 inches of oil. Heat oil until it bubbles
when you drop the dough in. Dough will cook quickly so flip dough over
as you see it crisping. When your dough is golden brown take out
immediately. Have your paper bag with powder sugar ready to go by the
oil. As soon as your donuts are taken out of the oil, drop them into the
bag and shake.
1.Take each doily and roll it to a cone shape and firmly tape it to hold in place.
2. Cut out strips of paper with your scallop scissors and write your “enjoy: message on each end.
3. Tape your messages on the inside edge of each cone.
4. Cut several squares of parchment paper and stuff inside each cone.
5. Place donut holes inside each cone, and try not to eat them!
