hazelnut spread with cocoa, cinnamon-sugar


  1. Fill 4-quart Dutch oven one-third full of oil for frying. Heat over medium heat.

  5. Fry 6 to 8 dough rounds at a time, turning constantly with spider or metal spoon, until golden brown. Remove from oil; place directly in cinnamon-sugar. Carefully turn doughnut holes in sugar until coated. With sharp knife, pierce hole in each doughnut hole. Insert end of decorating bag; squeeze bag to fill with hazelnut-caramel mixture.


Expert Tips

If you can’t find dulce de leche in the cultural foods aisle of your store, try making your own by filling a baking dish with sweetened condensed milk and tightly covering with foil. Place the baking dish in a roasting pan and fill the roasting pan with water, three-fourths of the way up the dish. Bake at 425°F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, checking every 30 minutes for a caramel color.

After filling the doughnut holes, press the hole down in the cinnamon-sugar again to help seal in the filling.
