Ingredients Nutrition

  • oil, for frying
  • 1 (16 1/3 ounce) can biscuits
  • For the sauce
  • 1 (4 ounce) bar sweet chocolate (recommended ( Baker's German's)
  • 12 ounce unsweetened chocolate
  • 12 cup butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 12 cups evaporated milk
  • 1 14 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional Toppings
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • chocolate sprinkles (optional)
  • toasted coconut (optional)
  • colored candy (optional)
  • chopped pecans (optional)
  • store-bought glaze (optional)


  1. Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to about 360 to 375 degrees F.
  2. Remove biscuits from the can. Poke a hole in each one with your thumb. Form them into doughnuts. Drop them into hot grease and brown them on both sides until they were done about 2 minutes on each side. Don't forget to flip often.
  3. For the sauce:
  4. Melt the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over very low heat. Stir in the sugar, alternating with the evaporated milk, blending well. Raise the heat to medium and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat and cook, stirring, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, about 8 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Dip cooked doughnuts immediately into the chocolate mixture before the chocolate starts to cool. Add topping/toppings of your choice.
  6. Place the doughnuts on a plate and serve when the chocolate on the doughnuts sets, about 5 minutes.
