A Party or Snack Idea

PURPLE YAM FILLED DONUTS

This recipe is super easy.  You can even get the children involved.  A good idea for children’s birthday party, holidays or just a snack.  You can put them in paper bags or any festive container with their name on it serve with their favorite drink.   This sure is a hit at every party or any occasions.  Sometimes, I use this as a reward or surprise for my children when they’re in their best behavior.

There are so many variations you can make with this recipe. You can stuff them with chocolates, mild and sweet cheeses, raspberries, blueberries, coconut, purple yam, jelly, jam, peanut butter, cream cheese, peaches, apples, etc.   If you prefer making a dough from scratch, that’s fine too.

I put them in their favorite color paper bag with their name on it; served with chocolate milk.  My children love this idea.  Sometimes, I staple the bag and make them guess what’s inside.  It’s a game we play to make them excited and all happy. Whoever guess it right, gets a prize. 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Pillsbury Original flavor biscuit dough (8 pieces)
  • Oil for frying
  • Stuffing of your choice (blueberries, strawberries, chocolates, cheese, raspberries, coconut, purple yam, peaches, mango, peanut butter, apples, pumpkin etc)

Preparation Method:

Heat a deep pan with oil over very LOW heat.  Separate the dough and cut them in quarters.  You should have 32 balls when you’re done.  Flatten the dough and put the stuffing of your choice. Then, gather the edges and pinch the dough together and roll using your palm to form a ball.   Make sure you don’t overstuffed the dough or it will open up while frying. And your will ended up with laughing balls (A term I use because of their shapes). Repeat the process for the remaining dough.  Drop the balls in batches (make sure they have enough room, so they don’t stick together) and cook until brown.  This process is very quick.  Be careful not to burn them.  Repeat the process for the remaining balls.  Put the cooked balls on a plate or a bowl lined with paper towel to absorb any excess oil.  Let it cool off a bit.  Place in a bowl with sugar and toss to coat.  Serve warm.

  1. Hi Anna,
    It was so delicious! My children made them and it was not the best shaped balls but was the sweetest! They stuffed it with bananas and Hershey cookies and cream drops. What a way to start our weekend. I wish I could share these photos..very delicious. It reminds me of the filipino dessert baduya;) thank you again.

    • Oh, my gosh! I miss baduya. I used to eat them when I was little. 😀
      I am so proud of your little chefs for making these balls. 🙂 Hurray for them. 😀 I hope you’ll get to visit my humble blog again. Take care and have a nice weekend. Aloha! *Shaka* 😀

  2. Hi Anna,
    Omg! Im on my way to buy those Pillsbury dough and soon after school let my children busy themselves! A good time for us here in Hawaii, its a rainy day but these balls will keep us happy, thank you so much for sharing!;)

    • Aloha Jae! Yes, this is absolutely great for children. A great way to bond with them, especially in a rainy day when there’s nothing else to do indoors. 😀
      Just don’t overstuffed the dough or it will open up while frying. I had to keep pinching the balls until they go into the hot oil to keep their round shape. The dough tends to retract, so just be aware. Enjoy and have fun making ’em. Aloha! 😀

  3. Wow, this looks so good and the direction is easy to follow, I hope it will turn out this way when I try this recipe! Thank you for sharing Anna! 🙂
