Ingredients:

4 cups of 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
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Confectioner's sugar for topping
Red food coloring for color desired
Cream cheese icing if desired

Directions:

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 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 alot, feel free to keep these warm in
the oven until you are ready to serve
