First things first: a beignet is a pillowy French donut, covered in icing sugar, and usually served piping hot. I had the pleasure of enjoying one (or three) in New Orleans. I wanted to recreate these beignets, but with a delicious twist- filled with a peanut chocolate spread.
Reese Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread fit the bill. This new spread tastes just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup! This recipie is pretty easy, but make sure you have time to let the dough rise for 2 hours! I made my beignets into different shapes (square and circle) but ultimately settled on the traditional square shape. Happy baking! (and frying. and eating.)
