One of the girls at work makes these every year and we go crazy over them. She finally shared her recipe so I want to share it with you. (She deep frys these but you can fry them on the stovetop)

Made these for my wife's office party. The girls in her office loved them. Even the ones that do not ordinarily eat hot food.
