Bounty Snowball Doughnut

Making a Bounty Snowball Doughnut is a delightful way to bring some festive cheer to your kitchen! Here’s a recipe to guide you through the process:


For the Doughnut:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Oil for frying

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • Small pieces of Bounty chocolate bar
  • Silver edible glitter (optional)


  1. Make the Doughnut Batter:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    • In another bowl, mix together the eggs, melted butter, buttermilk, and coconut extract.
    • Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Shape the Doughnuts:
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness.
    • Use a doughnut cutter or two differently sized round cutters to cut out doughnut shapes.
    • Let the cut doughnuts and doughnut holes rest for a few minutes.
  3. Fry the Doughnuts:
    • Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 375°F (190°C).
    • Fry the doughnuts in batches, turning once, until golden brown on both sides.
    • Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  4. Prepare the Topping:
    • Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl or over a double boiler.
    • Dip each doughnut into the melted white chocolate, then immediately into the shredded coconut, ensuring an even coating.
  5. Add Final Touches:
    • Place small pieces of Bounty bar on top of each doughnut while the chocolate is still soft.
    • Sprinkle with silver edible glitter for a festive touch (optional).
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Allow the doughnuts to set for a few minutes before serving.
    • Enjoy your homemade Bounty Snowball Doughnuts with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate!

These doughnuts are best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in an airtight container for a day or two. Remember, the key to a good doughnut is to not overcrowd the fryer and to maintain a consistent oil temperature. Happy baking!
