These mini heart shaped doughnut holes are easy to make with a can of cinnamon roll dough. They are the perfect easy treat for Valentine’s Day.
1 Can cinnamon rolls dough pre-made
canola oil for frying
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 Cups icing sugar
1/4 Cup milk warmed
4 Oz. cream cheese
1/2 Cup strawberries
2 Tbsp. icing sugar
1 Tbsp. whipping cream
1 Tsp. vanilla extract
In a dutch oven or saucepan, heat 2” of canola oil to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix granulated sugar with cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk powdered sugar and warm milk.
Lightly flour a flat surface area or cutting board. Separate the biscuits and roll flat with a rolling pin to about ½” thick. Use a 2” heart shaped cookie cutter to cut dough into small hearts.
Carefully drop the hearts into the canola oil and fry for 1 minute per side. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
Place donuts on a wire rack over a cookie sheet or covered surface to catch any spills. Brush donuts with glaze, then dip both sides in cinnamon sugar mixture. It is best to do one at a time so the glaze does not set before dipping.
Repeat with all donuts.
To make the dip: Add cream cheese, strawberries, sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla extract to a food processor or blender. Pulse for 15 to 20 seconds, or until smooth.
Serve the mini heart shaped donuts with dip and enjoy!
