    Thanks, I really love Krispy Kremes. There isn't a store here where I live but they ship some to our convience stores. It really isn't the same if they aren't hot and fresh. I am going to have to try and make them.

    Thanks for the recipe. I almost went into a diabetic coma just reading it. Seriously, I will probably not have that much trouble converting this to lower carb.

    An easy way to flip them over in the deep fryer is to use chop sticks. I use to be the donut maker at Winn-Dixie and we use sticks to flip them.

    These are my favorites!! It was a serious weakness that I used to have when we had a Krispy Kreme store here, since they have closed...I havent had a fresh donut in over 4 years!! I may just have to make these!!! Thanks!!!
