This recipe was heaven sent for someone who likes both cookies and cream and tasty fried doughnuts. These doughnuts are soft, fluffy and filled with a smooth cookies and cream filling that will leave you wanting more. Since preparing doughnuts from scratch can be so time-consuming, many people leave it for another day, however, this recipe is ready in just five minutes so you won’t have to wait for hours to satisfy your doughnut craving! If easy, quick and delectable donuts sound like your thing, I suggest you make this recipe.


Cookies & Cream Filling:

  • 10 chocolate cookies
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 12 pieces chocolate

Doughnut Mixture:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 4 cups sunflower oil, for frying

Doughnut Topping:

  • ⅓ cup white chocolate


  1. Pour the cookies into a ziplock bag, fasten, and bash into crumbs using a rolling pin.
  2. Pour half of the cookie crumbs into a bowl and mix with the cream cheese. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the doughnut mixture by combining the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  4. Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  5. Add the milk, melted butter, and sunflower oil into the hole of dry ingredients.
  6. Mix together with a fork until a dough is formed. Start rolling the dough into golf ball-size balls and then flatten using your thumb.
  7. Spoon in a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture and a square of chocolate. Close the dough with your hands and roll into a ball.
  8. Heat up the liter of sunflower oil in a pan until it reaches 375°F.
  9. Deep-fry the doughnut balls for about 4-5 minutes, until golden brown. Then leave donuts to drain and cool on a wiring rack or paper towel.
  10. Drizzle over the melted white chocolate and remaining half of the cookie crumbs.

With these doughnuts, you’ll find that the tempting first bite and the delicious aroma will make you glad you decided to make it. These fluffy, delicious doughnuts were simple to make and a big hit when I served them to guests. This time around, I had all the ingredients; but, when I prepared them the first time, I ran out of white chocolate and used melted Oreo cream instead and it worked all the same. The doughnuts turned out a tad dark, so I would suggest cooking at a slightly lower temperature for five and a half minutes. Overall as I was making these doughnuts, I could not stop thinking about how good they would be, and they certainly did not disappoint.
