The icy conditions outside led to a pajama clad morning at our house. Without church to go to, I thought it was the perfect time to make chocolate donut holes. I saw the recipe on Smitten Kitchen awhile ago and was just waiting for the perfect day to make them. They are wonderful!!! The kids enjoyed theirs coated in powdered sugar...I ate mine with my cup(s) of coffee.
I made a few changes to the original recipe - I only had dark chocolate powder on hand so I used that. And instead of rolling them out and cutting them, I used a small cookie scoop to make balls and dropped them right into the hot oil. This resulted in less than perfect "holes", but it was much easier.
