Beignets are square doughnut that is covered in powdered sugar. Dip them in our Chocolate Hazelnut, Butterscotch Caramel, and Vanilla Raspberry sauces.
With Mardi Gras coming up, I thought I would share some Mini Beignets, my favorite dessert from the beautiful city of New Orleans! For those that aren’t familiar, beignets are kind of like a square doughnut that is covered in powdered sugar. Did you ever see Disney’s Princess and the Frog? That’s the dessert they eat in the beginning of the movie! When we were visiting New Orleans we regularly hit up the famous Cafe Du Monde for these tasty treats! And if you are at Disneyland, they have the closest replicas, besides my own :), that I have tasted so far. In a restaurant in New Orleans Square they serve their beignets with delicious dipping sauces, which is my favorite way to eat them! For making my own I have three sauces that are all amazing, a Chocolate Hazelnut, a Butterscotch Caramel, and a Vanilla Raspberry, recipes (HERE).
Be sure to prepare the dough at least 4 hours before when you plan to serve these because they need at least 3 hours to raise in the fridge then 30 to 40 more out of the fridge.
