Make your own doughnuts

 It's super easy and your kids will have tons of fun creating their own.

What you will need:
1 can of biscuit dough (not the flaky kind)
vegetable oil for frying in a skillet
biscuit cutters (or round cookie cutters smallest size)
Chocolate for melting
powdered sugar
granulated sugar

Slightly flatten each biscuit then with a small cookie cutter (I used the cap to the bottle of oil, lol) cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit...Don't toss those holes, fry those last for doughnut holes!
Heat your oil on medium, drop each doughnut in, fry for about 30 seconds on each side (until each side is golden brown, watch out, they fry VERY quickly and burn easily)
Lay then on a paper towel lined plate.

1/3 cup butter (melted)
 2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 -6 tablespoons hot water
Mix together in a mixing bowl and dip tops and bottoms of doughnuts.
Chocolate icing
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon heavy cream
2 tablespoons butter
Melt together and stir.  Dip tops of doughnuts in.

Mix 2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon in a paper lunch bag, brush doughnuts with melted butter...Put doughnut in paper bag and shake.
