  • 4 cups vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or eggnog for something more festive!
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioner's sugar for serving or other toppings
  • Red food coloring for color desired


  • Heat oil in a pot to about 375 degrees.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl until combined.
  • Next whisk in wet ingredients: milk, eggs and vanilla extract until the batter is nice and smooth. Add red food coloring as well and whisk until it is the color you want it to be.
  • Add batter to a funnel, squeeze bottle or even a cake decorating piping bag with a round tip.
  • Once oil is nice and hot, swirl batter in a spirally shape (have fun with this part) into the oil and fry. Turn over once the first side is nice and golden brown.
  • Once both sides are golden brown, remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain. These babies fry fast!
  • Immediately cover with confectioner's sugar or other toppings and serve while hot. If you are frying a lot, feel free to keep these warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.
