Easy, fried donuts in under 30 minutes! These Cookies 'n Cream Donuts are made using Pillsbury Grands biscuits, Hershey Cookies 'n cream bars, Oreos and Chocolate frosting. Perfect, right?!

Ingredients

For the Donuts:

  • 1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Grands biscuits
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For the topping:

  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons corn syrup
  • 1 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 oz semi sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 4oz Hershey cookies 'n cream candy bar, melted
  • 3 Oreo cookies, crushed

Instructions

  1. In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat oil about ½-¾ inch high. Depending on your size skillet will determine how much oil is necessary. Bring oil to a sizzle when you drop a couple drops of water into it.
  2. Separate biscuits and using a one inch circle cutter (I used a cannoli tube) pop center hole out of each biscuit so it resembles a donut. Fry each biscuit for 2-3 minutes each side. Allow to cool and dry on paper towels.
  3. While donuts are cooling, make chocolate glaze. In a small saucepan on medium low heat, mix together the cream, milk, butter, vanilla and corn syrup. When butter is completely melted, turn heat to low and add in the chocolate, whisking smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar.
  4. Dip each donut into the glaze. Drizzle the melted Hershey Cookies 'n Cream bar over each donut and immediately sprinkle with crushed cookies. Allow the chocolate to set, about 15 minutes. ENJOY

  1. Mmmm these look like the perfect mid afternoon snack too right?! Yup thought so!

    1. Oh my gosh, yes! I save it all the time. I have different mason jars labeled with different oils. Donut oil. Chicken oil. LOL….

  2. Can I just tell you how much I love the fact that I can make doughnuts using pillsbury grands? so so easy! and I am loving this version.

  3. What a great idea for making easy fried donuts! That chocolate icing and Oreo? Even better.

  4. Thank you for the recipe an don’t forget that left over do-nuts makes for a great start to a wonderful bread pudding.

  5. Dude! Love these! I have a list of recipe ideas (as do you, I’m sure) and Cookies and Cream donuts have been on that list forever! The melted Hershey’s bar is genius. Never would have thought to add that!

  6. Yum! What a cool idea for a shortcut!
    And I love the newspaper backdrop you used. It’s perfect. 🙂

  7. A stellar donut Aimee. I have to try using the Grands and making these donuts for the kids. They would LOVE these!

  8. I would have never thought to fry Grands but wow, I bet these are so good. What a treat! I never fry things so they would be especially good 🙂

    1. We don’t eat fried food often either, but it’s such a rich, delicious treat in moderation!!!

  9. My mouth is seriously watering right now, Aimee! I’m so pinning this recipe and going to collect the others! I love how easy you made this for us…yummy-ness in just 30 minutes! I’m so on it. Thank you for including my Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pastry Doughnuts!

  10. I LOVE biscuit doughnuts! My mom used to make them and roll them in cinnamon sugar when I was a kid. They’re one of the best things ever.

  11. These look divine. My problem with frying things is wasting all that oil, so thanks for the tip about straining it and saving it in a jar. Totally going to make some biscuit donuts now.

  12. We’re leaving on vacay in the morning, and I’m totally wishing I had a box of these to take with us in the car – they look soooooo good!
