Easy Nutella Peanut Butter Glazed Doughnuts by

Oh man, you guys.ย 

Normally I start each post with a funny/witty/amusing little tale which has little, if anything, to do with the actual recipe I’m posting. Because I think everyone likes those kinds of stories. Especially when they involve imaginary turkeys or Paul Anka.

But, I just can’t this time.

These are too freakin’ good. They deserve their own post.ย 

They are one of the tastiest things I’ve ever concocted – and I don’t throw that around lightly! Even better? They are BEYOND easy.

You start with refrigerated biscuit dough – that’s right, no mixing, no yeast! I had seen several bloggers using this method and I was intrigued, but not totally convinced. Could they really be as a tasty as they all said?

YES. Yes, they are.ย 

They fry up nice and crisp in some hot oil, and then I dunked ’em in a simple (microwaved!) glaze of unsalted butter, chunky peanut butter, and Nutella. Oh, and a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips too.

My husband tried one and I knew from the look on his face that if I didn’t photograph them immediately, I would have nothing to show you all! Obviously, that is unacceptable, so I snapped the pictures I needed and gave him permission to have at it.

The things I do for your guys :)


Easy Nutella Peanut Butter Glazed Doughnuts
Author: Jennifer
Serves: 8
  • 1 can refrigerated large biscuits (8 per can)
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/3 cup chunky peanut butter (you can also use creamy, as long as it is not natural/homemade)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • Mini chocolate chips, optional
  1. Place about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Heat to approximately 325 to 350 degrees.
  2. While oil is warming, remove biscuits from can and peel apart. Using a small, round cutter, cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit (save the middles and fry them to make doughnut holes!).
  3. When oil is ready,gently place 2-3 doughnuts at a time in oil until lightly browned on each side (watch out – they cook fast!). Place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain when done.
  4. In a medium bowl, place the butter and chunky peanut butter. Microwave for about 30 seconds, or until melted. Stir to combine. Add the 1/2 cup of Nutella, mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. Dip doughnuts into the Nutella mixture. Use a spoon to add more glaze if it comes out uneven. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips, if desired. Serve immediately. Makes 8 large doughnuts (and 8 doughnut holes!). Recipes can be easily doubled.
