Open-faced fried doughnuts topped with chocolate and chewy caramel bunny bites then coated with sugar.
If you want to indulge into something new, there’s nothing more satisfying than sink your teeth into these luscious, velvety chocolate and chewy caramel doughnuts. However, I must warn you; these bites are not low in calories. They’re rich, decadent, chewy with a crunch that will definitely make you swoon. The catch? They require extra steps to prepare, but there’s a good reason why. I can assure you those extra steps are worth it. I came up with this for Easter because we had so much chocolate candies. They’re perfect for the occasion or any party or gathering anytime. Children and adult alike will surely enjoy them.
All you need to make these tempting bites are chocolate caramel bunny bites (I used Palmer brand), Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Honey Butter flavored biscuit dough, sugar, baking spray and oil for frying.
Coat the mini muffin tin with baking spray ( I used Joy). Separate and cut the biscuit dough in quarters ( 32 total) and place in the mini muffin tin. Using a double headed wooden pastry tart tamper, press down to create a well or a crater in the center. Place the chocolate caramel bunny bites (one each) in the well. Bake in a 325 degree preheated oven for 7-9 minutes (depending on your oven) or until the dough rise a little bit. You need to carefully watch the dough. You do not want to cook it all the way through. You just want to bake it until it holds its shape. The chocolate bunny bites should be very soft but not melted. Remove and place in a refrigerator for 5-10 minutes or until the dough settled and the bunny bites hardened.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large, deep pan. Carefully remove the chocolate bunny bites from the top of the dough without breaking; set aside. Using a table knife, gently loosen the sides of the dough to remove it from the muffin tin. The dough should have dents in the center from the bunny bites. Fry in batches until golden brown and place on a plate lined with paper towel . As soon as you remove the doughnuts from the oil, immediately place the chocolate bunny bites on top (where the dent is) and gently press down. Repeat with the remaining doughnuts. The chocolate will melt halfway and adhere to the fried dough. The reason in doing this is so the chocolate is intact and not fall when you bite it. Then immediately coat the doughnut with sugar.
Done. Your hard work paid off. Devour! 🙂
In order to achieve the same result, you must follow the above crucial steps. If you have any leftover chocolates from Easter, try making these doughnuts. They are insanely delicious. 😀
