1 pkg Pillsbury Grands biscuits
1 box JELL-O Instant French Vanilla Pudding (3.4oz)
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
For the Ganache:
2Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp corn syrup
2 oz dark chocolate
2 oz milk chocolate
2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Prepare the filling first by whisking together the pudding mix with milk. Beat with whisk for about 2 minutes. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat on high with an electric mixer the heavy cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form (about 3 minutes). Fold in pudding mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat oil about 1/2-3/4 inch high. Depending on your size skillet will determine how much oil is necessary.
Separate biscuits. Fry each biscuit for 2-3 minutes each side. Allow to cool and dry on paper towels.
For the ganache, add cream, milk, butter, vanilla and corn syrup to a medium saucepan. Heat on medium until butter is melted. Turn to low and add in the chocolates. Whisk continuously until smooth.
Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until ganache is smooth. Set aside.
To assemble the donuts spoon filling into a large pastry bag with tip. Press tip into side of donut and squeeze until donut appears “full.” There will be some filling that comes out and this is ok.
Repeat for remaining donuts.
Spoon warm ganache over each filled donut. Enjoy!
