  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit dough 8 per can
  • frying oil Rice Bran, Vegetable, Canola, Grapeseed etc.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
  • 1 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk or more as needed depending on consistency desired
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oil on medium-high heat in a large pot or dutch oven until it has reached 375 degrees (I used a candy thermometer). You can also test if it's ready using the tip of wooden chopsticks or a wooden spoon.
  2. Remove biscuits from tube and lay out on a cutting board. Using a 1 inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit.

  3. Line a cookie wire rack with a few sheets of paper towels to absorb the oil.
  4. Gently place a couple of the doughnuts at a time into the hot oil. When they start to rise and turn golden, flip them over immediately using tongs or a wooden spoon (it should take less than a minute).
  5. The second side will turn golden very quickly and faster than the first side.
  6. Immediately transfer the fully fried donuts to paper towels to blot excess oil.
  7. Continue with the remaining donuts until everything is fried. You can also fry the donut holes.
  8. Make the glaze - In a medium bowl whisk together powdered sugar, peanut butter, and salt. Add 1 tablespoon of milk and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine. Mixture may be thick. Add more milk, a tablespoon at a time, until the glaze is thick and just pourable.
  9. Dip each donut into the peanut butter glaze. Shake off some of the excess glaze. Return to the wire rack to dry. Repeat and dunk again for a thicker coating. Add sprinkles if desired. Allow to rest for a few minutes for the frosting to harden slightly.

Recipe Notes

Donuts are best served warm and fresh! You may have to reheat in the microwave for a few seconds if they have cooled down.
