Chocolate Cream Donuts
The day I made kopy Kat Krispy Kreme donuts I decided to make more than just regular glazed donuts but wanted to use the same dough recipe for the base.
These chocolate covered cream donuts are incredible! They have a chocolate ganache layer with a vanilla cream center that's not too sweet. The vanilla and chocolate flavors play off of each other and melt in your mouth. If you love chocolate, you could make a chocolate cream instead of a vanilla cream.
Chocolate Covered Cream Filled Donuts
You will need the Kopy Kat Krispy Kreme Donut Recipe, divide if desired
Ingredients for Kopy Kat Krispy Kreme Donut Recipe
A piping bag
A size 10 piping tip
A Coupler for the piping bag
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
8 T. heavy cream
1 (3 oz.) package vanilla or chocolate pudding
1 c. milk
1 container of Cool Whip
You will need to follow the Kopy Kat Krispy Kreme Donut Recipe. After the dough has rise, turn dough onto floured surface; roll around lightly to coat with flour. Gently roll dough 1/2 in. thick with floured rolling pin. Cut with floured large round cookie cutter or regular donut cutter with center piece removed. Cover and let rise until double, approximately 30 - 40 minutes.
Heat your oil to 350F. Place the donuts in the oil. Cook on each side for about 1 minute. Remove the donuts from the oil and place on a rack to drain.
While the donuts are cooling mix 1 package vanilla or chocolate pudding with 1 c. milk. Whisk together until the mixture starts to thicken. Fold in 1 container of Cool Whip. Place the pudding mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large piping tip.
Place the tip into the donut and put approximately 1 tablespoon of the vanilla pudding mixture into the donut.
Take the 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Once the chocolate chips are melted, mix in the heavy cream. Dip the top of the donut into the chocolate glaze until the top of the donut is covered. Allow the glaze to harden.
The best icing!! All you do is mix one vanilla pudding packet with half of the milk called for on the package. Whisk until it begins to thicken. Then fold in one container of Cool Whip. A great frosting spread on cakes and piped onto cupcakes, a tasty filling in crepes or on waffles along with some fruit...way less sugar too!!!!
