Do you love donuts? How about potato chips? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then you're in for a real treat! Spud nut donuts are the perfect combination of these two classic snacks. They are crispy, salty, and sweet all at the same time. Plus, they are super easy to make. So, what are you waiting for? Give them a try today!

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup spud nuts (potato chips that have been crushed into small pieces)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

*Note: You will also need a deep fryer and a doughnut cutter (or a biscuit cutter and a sharp knife).*


  1. To make your spud nut donuts, start by crushing the spud nuts into small pieces using a food processor or a sturdy ziplock bag and a rolling pin.
  2. Next, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well until you have a thick batter.
  5. Heat some oil in your deep fryer according to its instructions. Once the oil is hot enough, use your doughnut cutter (or biscuit cutter and sharp knife) to cut out rounds from your batter.
  6. Gently lower the donut rounds into the hot oil and cook until they are golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  7. Once your spud nut donuts are done cooking, transfer them to a wire rack or plate lined with paper towels to cool slightly.
  8. In a small bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make a thick glaze.
  9. Drizzle the glaze over your donuts and serve immediately while they're still warm! Enjoy!
