Need a crazy delicious treat to take to a holiday shindig? I’m not gonna lie, these little guys will probably make you the most popular person at the party. I made Mr. Lovely be my taste tester, and he ate one and went silent. I thought it was because they were no good but it turned out they were so tasty he was just concentrating really hard. And then he immediately stole a second one and ran away with it. Completely not kidding.
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup crushed Maple Bacon Kettle Brand Potato Chips
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp butter, melted
mini donut pan
3/4 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 tsp maple extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp milk
Preheat the oven to 325 and spray your donut pan liberally with nonstick spray. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Stir in the buttermilk, egg, vanilla, and butter until the mixture is smooth. Add half of the crushed Kettle Chips into the mixture and fold in. Set aside the other half of the Kettle Chips.
Pour the mixture into a ziploc baggie and snip off the tip of the bag. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each well only about halfway. Bake approximately 6-7 minutes, keeping a close eye on your donuts. They won’t look golden — the color will stay the same. You’ll need to feel the donuts to be sure that they have a soft, spongy texture to ensure that they’re done.
While the donuts are baking, mix the icing. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. Once the donuts are baked, place them on a cooling rack. One by one, dip the donuts in the icing. While the icing is still wet, sprinkle each donut with the remainder of your crushed Maple Bacon Kettle Chips. Let everything cool and set, and pack them up to take share with your fellow merry-makers!
Seriously, the crunch that the chips add to this little recipe is priceless. And the sweet-salty combination might just be my favorite part. Not to mention the fact that anything tiny enough to be eaten in one bite is perfect for bringing to a party! Hope you make these for your holiday festivities! xoxo
