Chocolate Beignets Ingredients

  • 1 regular can of biscuits
  • chocolate chips
  • oil for frying enough to make about 2 inches of oil in skillet or deep fryer
  • powdered sugar
  • chocolate syrup

Regular Beignets Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Honey Syrup, Molasses or Powdered Sugar (Optional)


Chocolate Beignets Instructions

  • Spread each biscuit into a circle and add 4 chocolate chips and fold the biscuit in half, pressing edges together. Drop each biscuit into oil around 350 degrees.  They will come to the top as soon as you drop them in oil.  Turn to brown both sides and remove from oil with slotted spoon.
  • Have a bowl of powdered sugar ready and roll hot beignets in sugar.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Makes 10 beignets.  Enjoy!We like these with and without the chocolate syrup.  You can also make these leaving out the chocolate chips for just plain biscuit beignets.

Regular Beignets Instructions

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix well in a bowl with a wire whisk.  Beat milk, egg, oil and vanilla together and add to dry mixture.  Beat batter with whisk until smooth.
  • Drop by tablespoon full into hot oil either in skillet or deep fryer. Cook to golden brown on each side being careful not to burn.  Drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with honey, syrup or molasses.  Makes about 24 beignets.
