You’ll have the taste of New Orleans in twenty minutes.

We like to celebrate everything in my household. It just makes life a little more fun. In this case, it made it a little more sweet too!

Before I go on, I want to share that I originally saw this recipe on Instagram: @lorafied. It looks like a fun and recipe I knew I needed to try with Mila. I’m so glad I did that I had to share with all of you.

Here’s the three ingredients you’ll need to let the good times roll:

  • 1 can of biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar

First, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 375 F.

While your oven is warming up, get out your canned biscuits. I always love the way it pops and just expands instantly. It brings make so many childhood memories!

Then, cut your biscuits in small pieces. I just did a cross section in mine to make four bites per biscuit.

Next, melt your butter. Put biscuit bites in a bowl and coat them with butter.

After they’re covered, pour the sugar all over them. I took my hands to mix them up and make sure all sides were covered. Move them to a plan after they’re all good.

At this point, I added some colored sugar to make them a little more festive for Mardi Gras.

Place them in your oven for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to flip your little beignets half way through too! You’ll know they’re done when they’re a beautiful, golden brown.

You can either dust with powder sugar or enjoy them as is!

We loved how our sweet treat tasted. Plus, it was such a fun way to talk about Mardi Gras with Mika while she did a mini activity too.

Hopefully you can get to make and enjoy these beignets for Fat Tuesday!
