They're not quite as chocolate-y as I personally would prefer. But other than that, with a little glaze they should be just fine.

Chilling the batter in the freezer while waiting for the oil to heat in my fryer made it thicken nicely. I did add a little extra flour per one of the other reviews. I didn't try to roll them I just put them in the fryer in rounded spoonfuls. They puffed up nicely. When they came out I dipped the tops in a powdered sugar/milk glaze. Yum!

I tried to make these tonight, measuring the flour a little liberally since the first reviewer said the batter wasn't thick enough. I tested the batter by making one doughnut hole since the batter was not thick enough to form. It was okay and had a good texture but was not chocolate enough for me. So, I doubled the sugar and cocoa, and it ruined the batter. I realize this is probably all my fault; so, I am not going to give the recipe a bad rating. I just wanted to warn people who may want to try this to not make the mistakes I did.
