Cinnamon-Butter Krispy Kreme ‘Kroutons’

Krispy Kreme “Kroutons” are a fun treat by themselves, but floating in boiled custard to enjoy at the bottom of your cup is good, too!


  • 6 Krispy Kreme doughnuts
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Cut each doughnut into 12 pieces (“kroutons”). Spread on pan and let air dry overnight. 

  2. Preheat toaster oven or oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in microwave and stir in cinnamon. Toss “kroutons” in bowl with butter. Bake about 5 minutes, tossing as needed, until golden brown.

  3. Cool and store in airtight container.

These "kroutons" were MADE for Ma Perry's Boiled Custard. Grab the recipe!
