Once all the croissants have the holes cut out, put them in line for the fryer!
Fill pot with about 2″ of oil. Heat oil to 350 degrees and then place cronut in oil…
When side is golden brown, flip the cronut over–about 10-20 seconds per side.
Remove golden brown cronut to paper towels…
Oh, just look at the flaky goodness!
I think the orange zest really makes the color and flavor pop!
Now it’s time to glaze the cronuts!
Briana made Whiskey Ganache (aka Irish Car Bomb Filling)
Then bathed the cronut in the ganache.
Double dunk in the glaze and let them sit.
She also made a batch of Bailey’s Irish Cream Icing–or just stick a tub of Betty Crocker icing in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir, then dip the cronuts.
And bathed a few cronuts in this delicious buttercream.
Maybe you want to get all fancy and add some rainbow jimmies to the cronut.
Now, these are delicious, but you can take this taste to the top by filling the cronut with the Irish Buttercream Icing
Simply fill a piping bag with the frosting, add a large tip and poke the tip into the cronut, squeeze and repeat. You’ll want to use the smallest piping bag you have to save your hands and wrist.
Then Briana dipped the filled cronuts into the whiskey ganache.
There you have it. An easy way to get the hottest commodity in New York without paying an arm and a leg OR sleeping on the sidewalk.
Sure, you could make the recipe I was sent, but these are easy and require very little effort before you get to bite into the crunch, flakey cronut that is calling your name!
