Overnight Gingerbread Beignets. Homemade beignets are always impressive, but we've put a spin on the southern classic and now, we're turning the normal fried puffs of dough into a beautiful Christmas spiced treat! Made using simple spices, ingredients, and then placed in the fridge overnight to develop the most amazing flavors. The next morning, you get to cut them into the cutest gingerbread men shapes, fry them, and then finish each beignet with a spiced sugar. Seriously, they are SO GOOD. Serve with a homemade chocolate sauce or caramel sauce for dipping to give them a little extra special layer of flavor. Perfect for breakfast on Christmas morning or just as a weekend morning treat!
