I’m not going to lie, I originally bought 6 doughnuts, and yes, I did eat one doughnut chip myself before starting the recipe. I just couldn’t help it. I’m not sorry. I’m also not sorry about the delicious aroma that oozes from the stove as these little sweets fry in their own sugary glaze. It filled up the whole dorm kitchen. People came down just to see what the glorious smell was from.

Bonus, the smell will stick to your clothes, and you will smell heavenly and sweet for the next hour or two. I think this is one of those things that is surprisingly easy to make and consistently surprises people too – like, how does a doughnut chip not sound enticing?

#SpoonTip: If you want it like a churro, under fry it so it’s still a fair bit soft and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar while it’s hot.

These little guys are easy to whip up, the longest amount of time being however long it takes you to physically get the doughnuts. So, if you’re tired of eating plain boring not quite crisp enough doughnuts, I highly recommend revamping them into the perfect chips they can be.
