DIRECTIONS

For Soft Ganache: Heat cream to boiling. Remove from heat, and pour over white chocolate in bowl. Let stand 5 min. Blend with immersion blender until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to use, whip until soft peaks form. Spoon into pastry bag fitted with #6 French star tip.

For Cake Donuts: Combine first 6 ingredients in mixing bowl. Whisk buttermilk and butter in separate bowl, then mix in eggs and vanilla until blended. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients; mix gently until almost combined. Carefully stir in 2-1/2 oz. cookie pieces. Let dough stand at room temperature 15 min. (If dough is very soft, refrigerate 15 min.)

Roll dough out on lightly floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Use 3-inch round cutter to cut out 15 donuts. Use 3/4-inch round cutter to cut and remove center of each donut.

Fry donuts and donut holes in 350°F oil until golden brown. Drain; cool completely. Glaze and finish each donut when ready to serve.

For each donut: When ready to serve, glaze 1 donut and hole with 3/4 oz. vanilla fondant icing. Pipe 1 oz. Soft Ganache into center of donut; top with glazed donut hole. Sprinkle with 1/4 oz. of the remaining cookie pieces, pressing into ganache. Drizzle with 1 oz. caramel sauce.

Tips

  • Several batches of donuts can be made early in the day, according to the amount needed. Cool and hold at room temperature. When ready to serve, glaze and top as directed.
