Popeyes Chocolate-Stuffed Beignets Are Now Available Nationwide
The fried pastries will be available for a limited time.
Popeyes is upping its dessert game!
The fried chicken chain has officially added its chocolate-stuffed beignets to menus nationwide after testing at select locations in September 2020. The classic New Orleans-style fried treat comes sprinkled with powdered sugar and will be available in three-packs for $1.99, six-packs for $3.99, and a dozen for $7.49, according to FoodBeast.
To celebrate the new dessert, Popeyes also released a limited edition "Beignet Camo" hoodie that is dusted with a white pattern to imitate the powdered sugar sprinkling on the beignets. Both the beignets and the hoodie will be available only for a limited time.
Back in September, it was uncertain if the dessert would receive a nationwide rollout. "As a brand from New Orleans we are always looking to bring new dishes and desserts from our hometown to the menu, but at this time the beignets are only available at select restaurants," a rep for Popeyes told PEOPLE.
Food Instagram @a_couple_fatties tracked down the dessert at a location in the Boston area. They told FoodBeast that "the chocolate was just oozing out of them," and that they come covered in a ton of powdered sugar.
If you'd rather make your own beignets, you can take a stab at making Disney's version at home.
Over the last few months, Disney has been sharing fan-favorite recipes from the parks — including their famous Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets.
“Now, you can cook up your favorite memories from New Orleans Square and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter from the comfort of your own kitchen,” wrote Disney Parks Blog, as they recommended pairing the powdered sugar-covered treat with a family viewing of The Princess and the Frog.
In order to make the batch-sized recipe, you’ll need a handful of ingredients — many of which are pantry staples — as well as an electric mixer, a dough hook and a Mickey-Mouse shaped cutter.
For 10 large beignets (or 2 dozen smaller ones), all you’ll need is dry yeast, sugar, vegetable shortening, salt, heavy cream, flour, vegetable oil, powdered sugar, 1 egg and water.
You can find the full recipe on the Disney Parks Blog.
