This King Cake Beignets Recipe Is Everything Mardi Gras in One Bite
Bring the Mardi Gras celebration anywhere with the ultimate sweet dessert mash-up that pretty much sums up the best parts of New Orleans.

So naturally we thought to ourselves, how can we combine the two? And thus we present the sweetest dessert you’ll want to eat on Fat Tuesday!
