The Fourth of July holiday is coming up fast! We can hardly believe how fast this year has flown by, and now it’s almost time to celebrate the freedom that makes our nation great. And what better way to celebrate than with red, white, and blue sweets! You’ll want to start off your Independence Day right with a decadent breakfast dessert, and we have the perfect, simple treat for you: patriotic Fourth of July Cronuts with holiday sprinkles!
The cronut- a croissant donut hybrid- trend took off in New York City in 2013, and was invented and trademarked by pastry chef Dominique Ansel. Her official pastries can only be purchased in four locations worldwide, but we’ve found the ultimate copycat secret; it takes about twenty minutes, six ingredients, and one of our favorite patriotic sprinkle mixes for infinite deliciousness.
You’ll need one package of frozen puff pastry dough to start. Cut it into donut shapes (and donut holes of course!) and fry them in vegetable oil at 350 degrees fahrenheit until golden brown- about three minutes on each side.
Once your dough is fried, you’ll want to make your icing. We used a simple frosting of powdered sugar, vanilla bean paste, heavy whipping cream, and a splash of bourbon- it is a celebration after all! And of course you’ll want to top off your cronuts with a delicious sprinkle mix- we used “Old Glory II” for a bit of American flair!
So there you have it, the easiest cronut copycat you'll find, and the perfect first meal of the day for your Independence Day celebration! From all of us here at Sprinkle Pop, we want to wish you and yours a happy, safe, and sweet Fourth of July!
