Chocolate Biscoff (Cookie Butter) Cronuts | Pixiedustkitchen.com Only three ingredients needed to make cronuts at home!

I’ve been obsessed with cronuts since I first heard about them a few months ago, and instead of going up to NYC and standing in line for a few hours, I decided to make my own.  (After googling “baltimore cronuts” a few times, of course.) Have you heard of cronuts? It’s essentially a croissant and donut hybrid- and with this easy shortcut, making your own couldn’t be simpler.  All you need is a tube of pre-made croissant, oil, and a few ingredients to dress them up with- in this case, cookie butter and chocolate chips.

Before making these, I was scared to death of frying. However, it’s not that hard! Just remember to have your oven fan on and maybe a window or two open- I accidentally set off my smoke alarm 3 cronuts in. Using a heavy bottomed pan, pour in two cups of canola and olive oil, roll up your croissants with biscoff and chocolate chips inside, and fry one side at a time until golden brown.

Easy as easier than pie!

    Such a great idea, to put the biscoff in there! I was afraid of frying too, now I’m an old pro. I just hate how it makes my house smell! :)
