White Chocolate Doughnut Poppers #Choctoberfest

White Chocolate Doughnut Poppers from The PinterTest Kitchen

When Allison and I started planning #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I automatically was put in charge of coming up with some white chocolate recipes since I LOVE it and my sister is not a fan.

Loving white chocolate is something I share with our dad. Growing up, my mom would have to search for white chocolate bunnies for the ‘Easter Bunny’ to bring both my dad and I every year. We’d both be a little disappointed to find milk instead of white chocolate Easter morning… but not THAT disappointed because hey, chocolate is chocolate!

Lindt Chocolate is one our #Choctoberfest sponsors this year and when I received a White Chocolate CLASSIC RECIPE chocolate bar (among several others!), I knew I had to find a recipe to use that one for sure!

Frying donuts is something I’ve never tried before, yet have always been interested to try. When I came across this recipe pinned from Oh My God Chocolate Desserts, I was intrigued…  White chocolate? Check. A new challenge? Check. A delicious looking recipe? SOLD.

I’ll be honest, I was a little intimidated by the idea of frying donuts. But It wasn’t hard at all! I will warn you though… unless you’ve fried doughnut holes before, I recommend only putting three or four in the oil at a time. Any more and it’s hard to fry them evenly.

These poppers are so good I’d even eat them without the filling! It’s an option if you’re looking to make a ‘skinny’ version of this recipe. But c’mon… It’s #Chocoberfest after all. You might as well go all out! Speaking of going all out, have you heard about the huge chocolate gift pack we’re giving away?!? Enter to win here.

Good luck trying not to eat your ingredients while making this recipe. Lindt chocolate bars so creamy and smooth that it is tempting to eat them alone, instead of saving them for your recipes. If you love chocolate, Lindt also has flavor-infused chocolate bars, featuring Hazelnuts, Salted Pretzel, Caramel with Sea Salt, and Strawberries. Yum!

Oh, and if you aren’t a fan of white chocolate (like my weirdo sister), these poppers would also be delicious with Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE milk chocolate or even Lindt EXCELLENCE 70% cocoa (dark chocolate).
