Grillswith (Donut Happiness) Recipe
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup water, or as needed
- 1 quart vegetable oil for deep-frying
- 4 large refrigerated biscuits
- ½ cup cinnamon sugar
- 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
step 1: Place the cocoa powder and chocolate chips into a medium bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan until simmering hot. Pour over the chocolate chips and let stand for a minute, then add vanilla and stir until smooth. Set aside.
step 2: In a separate bowl, stir together the confectioners' sugar and salt. Mix in vanilla and enough water to achieve a thin icing. Set aside.
step 3: Heat the oil in a heavy skillet or electric skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Use a small biscuit cutter or knife to cut circles in the centers of the biscuits. Fry the donuts in the hot oil until browned on each side, about 4 minutes total. Drain quickly on paper towels, then transfer to a rack. Pour some of the vanilla glaze over the tops of the donuts, let it set up for about a minute, then turn them over and glaze the other side. Sprinkle the donuts with cinnamon sugar while the glaze is still wet.
step 4: To serve the Grillswith, place one donut in the center of a plate. Top with a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with hot chocolate sauce.
