Cinnamon Beignets with Chocolate Sauce, a Sweet Treat!
Another recipe I made for Mardi Gras were Beignets. I didn't have the right ingredients for the famed King Cake but I did have what I needed for Beignets. I had never made these before. They say beignets are much like a French Doughnut. I'll admit they were a little work and the original recipe needed some help. The dough was way too dry so I added water as needed. I added some spices to the powdered sugar mix and then I really felt like these needed help from a sauce of some type. Chocolate is good on almost anything sweet. These are really sweet tasting so if it's too much, then I would add sea salt on top. I made up my own chocolate sauce too since the recipes all called for cocoa powder. Guess what, I don't have cocoa powder either! It's good that I have a nice chocolate bar stash for these times.
