Yep…”Lava Doughnuggets”, that name pretty much sums up these molten mounds of magnificence! I went back and forth with a few different names, but “Decadent Dough-balls of Drippy Delight” seemed a bit too long..lol! These gems are such a treat, and almost embarrassingly simple. ~almost!
No one will ever know by looking at these elegant little puffs, that you didn’t work all day in your kitchen, kneading, baking, rolling and filling! Shh..it will be our little secret!
One bite of the warm, soft, tender dough is all it takes to release a smooth and seductive chocolate explosion of decadence in your mouth! Oh Lordy…I need a moment! 🙂
What you’ll need for 32 Magnificently Molten Doughnuggets:
1 Roll of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits.
64 mini squares of Hershey’s Chocolate (2 per each Nugget)..or 32 regular sized squares (1 per each Nugget)
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 cup Hershey’s Sweetened Cocoa Powder
Oil for frying..I used Canola
Cut each biscuit into fourths and gently stretch each piece out with your fingers. Place the Chocolate squares inside the dough, roll it up & seal it very well…
In a medium pot, heat up approx. 2″ of Oil to 350 degrees and fry up the Doughnuggets in batches of 4 until evenly golden.
Toss the warm Nuggets in the Powdered Sugar and/or Cocoa Powder, making sure to evenly coat them…
Grab some Napkins and do what comes naturally, oh and wipe that Chocolate off your chin! ~Enjoy! 🙂
Hi I’m from the Philippines and I want to try this. Hopefully it’ll be perfect just like this. Wish me luck. Haha!
Who knew doughnuts could get any betteR?
OMG, Amy! CANNOT wait to make these, absolutely for Valentine’s Day, definitely before then! 🙂
Looks super yummy but can you tell me what they’re like after sitting a bit? Could you make these ahead of time or are they pretty much a make it right before you need it type of thing?
The Chocolate will not be gooey if they sit for very long, so as long as you’re okay with that, you can enjoy them whenever you’d like! I like them fresh and warm! 🙂
I can’t have fried foods is it possible to bake these then through them in the sugar?
If you seal them SUPER tight, it just might work! I’d use a Hershey’s Kiss instead though, just to buy the Chocolate a little more cooking time before it melts! 🙂
They taste great with Hershey Kisses too!!
I never imagined doughnuts could get any better … but these … I think I may have died and gone to Heaven. I will definitely be making these asap!
I have always used the cheap womp-em biscuits, I never knew you could use the flaky layer biscuits!! And I had never tried to put anything in the middle!! I will try that next time!!!! My kids LOVE this type of donuts!!!
