Whether you are a Michael Meyers, Conjuring or Friday the 13th fan, this horror movie cookbook is the best companion to your next fright night. We throw it back to 1975, when we were petrified of any open water after this said movie. Jaws, makes it way to our kitchen with this delicious fried donuts topped with red velvet ice cream.
Fried Donuts with Homemade Red Velvet Ice Cream
FOR THE RED VELVET ICE CREAM:
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons red food coloring
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
ó teaspoon salt
FOR THE FRIED DONUTS:
1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
vegetable oil, for frying
KILL LEVEL: Moderate | BODY COUNT: 6 servings |
PREP TIME: 15 minutes | COOK TIME: 35 minutes
1. Start with the ice cream. Place all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions. Once finished, place in the freezer overnight.
3. Once the ice cream is set, open the can of biscuits and place the biscuits on a baking sheet. Use a small round cookie cutter or shot glass rim to cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit.
4. Pour oil into a skillet to the depth of about 1/2 inch. Heat the oil over medium to medium high
heat for about 5 minutes. To test if your oil is hot enough, lightly place one of your donut holes into the oil. If it sizzles and starts to brown, it is ready.
5. Once the oil is hot, fry each biscuit—one or two at a time to avoid crowding—until golden on both sides. You’ll have to keep an eye on them to know when they are done, but it usually takes approximately 1 to 2 minutes per side.
6. Remove each batch of finished donuts (and donut holes, of course) from the oil and place on a paper towel–lined plate.
