Homemade Beignet Tower with Easy Caramel and Classic Hot Fudge Sauce
Fellow bakers and Mardi Gras enthusiasts, this one’s for you! I’ve got a couple tricks up my sleeve for the pre-Lent festivities this year. Anyone remember my homemade beignet recipe from last year? Or my festive Christmas tree macaron tower? I’ve combined the best parts of both of these shareable treats for the ultimate Mardi Gras centerpiece dessert: A luxurious tower of freshly-fried beignets, complete with classic homemade hot fudge and easy caramel sauce for dipping.
Let’s get started!
Before you begin, cover your cone with white chocolate and let it set. Now we're ready to assemble!
Pro Tip: You're going to use a bit of melted chocolate to 'glue' the cone onto the serving platter. It helps to keep the cone in place once the tower sets. I recommend that you fill the cone from the bottom up. Then add the powdered sugar to the entire thing.
Decadent Dips for Beignets: Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce and Classic Hot Fudge Sauce
What's a beignet without some delicious dipping sauces? I mean, they’re still good, but my personal philosophy is that more is more! Take your beignet tower to the next level with my easy homemade caramel sauce recipe and my classic hot fudge chocolate sauce recipe. These delightful dips make a perfect complement for scratch-made beignets, adding rich flavor and extra sweetness to every bite. If you want to get really fancy, try my Honey Caramel Sauce with Koval Honey Liqueur or my homemade blueberry sauce!
