Doughnut Holes with Chocolate Fondue

What could be more fun that doughnut holes to serve at your next get together!!!  Trust me they are really not hard to make, and they fry up so quickly.  I have started using my electric frying pan to do my deep frying for smaller items like these, you don’t use as much oil which really helps to save you money, and I can fry them on my counter top while something else is cooking on my cook top.   I also save the oil I used to fry things like doughnut holes to use the next time I’m deep frying, I never reuse the oil that I’ve fried fish in, it has a leftover fishy flavor.  I served these as part of my Superbowl menu, but they are also fun to do for brunch with a fun cup of hot chocolate, I also like to serve these when I’m doing a fondu menu!
