All it takes is 5 ingredients to make these chocolate-filled beignets that taste just like churros.


  • ¼ cup (60 mL) sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon
  • 1 pkg (16.3 oz./462 g) flaky biscuit dough (8 biscuits)
  •  Flour for dusting
  • 1 cup (250 mL) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
  •  Oil for spraying
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter, melted
  •  Optional: Chocolate sauce


  1. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl, and set aside.

  2. Peel and divide each piece of biscuit in half to create 16 biscuits total.
  3. Dust a rolling pin with flour and roll out each biscuit to a 4" (10-cm) round.

  4. Dip the Hand Pie & Pocket Maker in flour and place the dough on top. Fill one side of the dough with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of chocolate morsels, press to seal, then remove from the pocket maker. Repeat for each piece of dough.

  5. Spray the trays of the Deluxe Air Fryer with oil. Divide the beignets evenly onto both trays. Place the trays on the bottom two racks. Cook on BAKE for 12 minutes, until golden brown, rotating the trays halfway through.

  6. Brush the top of each beignet with melted butter and dip the buttered side into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

  7. Serve the beignets warm and drizzle chocolate sauce, if you’d like.
