Donuts are undoubtedly fluffy pillows of heaven, and the toppings are surely what dreams are made of. Making them into fries is just a total game changer. They are little bites that you can dunk into whatever sweetness your heart desires. Just roll the dough into ropes and fry on both sides until golden brown. Best served with icing, cinnamon sugar, or chocolate sauce.

    Flatten each dough disk, and cut into 3 strips. Roll each strip into lil’ ropes.
