Apple Cider Doughnuts and Drinking Chocolate

Fall is here! Oh, how I love fall…and donuts (doughnuts?)…and hot chocolate. So, you can imagine my excitement when Fancy That got Stonewall Kitchen’s Apple Cider Doughnut Mix and Treehouse Chocolate’s CAMP Drinking Chocolate in the shop! I knew it was my duty to taste test these products – it’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it, right?

The apple cider doughnut’s were so easy! If you want to make them according to the directions on the box you will need a doughnut pan. Unfortunately, I do not own a doughnut pan (how, with my love of doughnut’s, do I not own a doughnut pan?! I’ve added it to my Christmas wish list. Anyway…). So, I improvised and made doughnut holes and instead of baking them I fried them. Doughnut holes are all the rage now anyway you know.

Okay, let’s get started! Here is what you’ll need.

For the mix you'll need an egg, butter, and milk.

First you’ll want to start heating your oil. Pour about 2 inches of oil in a medium pot. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.

To make the doughnut batter follow the directions on the back of the box.

Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the oil. Once it’s hot enough drop in a test scoop of batter. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown.

Take the doughnut out and cut it in half to make sure it’s cooked all the way through. Adjust your cook time accordingly. If the doughnuts are browning to fast, lower the oil temperature.

Yum!

Place the cooked doughnuts on a paper towel lined plate.

Once you’ve cooked all the doughnuts open the packet of cinnamon sugar and pour in a bowl. Roll the doughnut holes in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve ASAP (or before you eat them all – remember sharing is caring)!

These doughnuts are so so so so good! The cinnamon sugar even has an apple cider spice to it. Seriously, so good. Did I mention how good these are?!

If you really feel like indulging pick up a couple packs of Treehouse Chocolate’s CAMP Drinking Chocolate. There are several other flavors available at Fancy That too! The one I had was like a super delicious mocha! Add a dollop of fresh whipped cream and you will be in creamy chocolate heaven!
