      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.

      I make donuts maybe twice a year, my family would love it if they turned out like real Krispy Kremes!

      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 st:039:icks. 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!!!

      Thanks for the info! What else do you use chopsticks to turn?

      gizzymo…what a clever idea! I use a wooden fork and spoon to flip them. it never occurred to me to use chop sticks!

      thanks!!
