Chai Latte Glazed Donut Holes Recipe

Chai Latte Glazed Donut Holes are just what you want when your donut craving hits. The chai glaze will really make you smile!

Sometimes I think I am obsessed with donuts. I get these insatiable cravings, it is crazy.

Since moving to the new ranch we are pretty far from the local donut shop. A quick run for donuts is pretty much out of the question.

So when the major cravings hit, I will whip up a quick batch using my favorite donut shortcut - canned biscuits.

Please don't hate on me for always having canned biscuits on hand. Even though my mama makes a mean homemade biscuit and has taught me well, I still love the ones from the can.

I love to make breakfast for dinner on busy weeknights and they are just the ticket for a quick meal and there's no mess. So there it is, my canned biscuit justification.

Seriously though, canned biscuit fried donut holes are so simple! Sometimes I just sprinkle the donut holes with a bit of powdered sugar, but this time I made them extra special with a chai latte glaze.

The last time I visited my Grandma she sent me home with a tub of instant chai latte. I'm officially hooked on it now, along with the rest of my clan.

I have to giggle a little every time I make a chai latte because she called it Tai Chi instead of chai tea. Of course, I will be saying that for the rest of days for giggling at her.

I always made fun of her for calling the roll when she was hollering at us kids. Now I can't get my kids names right without going through the whole list. Karma?

While I'm not likely to turn down a yeast donut, I just don't take the time to make my favorite chocolate glazed donuts. However, donuts in 15 minutes, that I can do and so can you!

It doesn't get any easier. I mixed up the glaze and then heated up a little oil in a pan. I cut the biscuits into quarters and rolled the dough into balls. I just fried donut holes in batches and they cook up in just a couple of minutes.

I dipped them into the glaze and then couldn't stop eating them.

So next time you the donut craving hits, you can whip up a batch of chai latte glazed donut holes and be pretty happy!
