1. In a saucepan, heat the milk with the butter over low heat until the butter has melted. (Don’t let it get too hot!)

2. Remove from heat and stir in the dry yeast, then let sit for 5 minutes.

3. Place your dry ingredients in an electric mixer fitted with the dough attachment (it looks like a hook).

4. Gradually add your liquids, then add your egg.

5. Allow the dough to develop in the machine on medium speed for about 10-12 minutes.

6. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover with cling film or cloth. Leave at room temperature for about an hour to double.

7. Once the dough has risen (aka fully rested), dust some flour over your work surface. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to about 2 cm thick.

8. Use a cutter about 8cm round to cut out your donuts. Leave them covered with a cloth for another 30 minutes.

9. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan or deep fryer to 180°C. Lay your donuts in two at a time and let them color for 2-3 minutes before repeating on the other side.

10. Place on a paper towel and allow the oil to absorb briefly before tossing in the powdered sugar.

11. Chop your KFC Popcorn Chicken into fine pieces.

12. Heat a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add powdered sugar and stir until it turns a caramel color.

13. Add your chopped KFC Popcorn Chicken. Stir into the caramelized sugar, then transfer to a tray and let cool.

14. Once the donuts have cooled, use a piping bag to evenly fill them with KFC Double Chocolate Mousse. Below is a rough guide if you’ve never filled a donut before.

15. Top your donuts and top with KFC Popcorn Chicken.


Insert the piping bag tip through the side of the donut and into the center. Apply light pressure to the piping bag. Within a few seconds, pull the piping bag out of the donut and squirt as you go.
