Start by making your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, or skip it and use store-bought dough instead. The secret is to refrigerate the balls for an hour or so before you start frying. This will help them keep the right shape while they fry.

Don?t forget to dredge each one in the flour mixture before sticking them in the hot oil. That way you?ll get the perfect crispy outer layer.

Watch to see how easy these are to make.

Here?s what you?ll need:

For the cookie dough:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For the dredging and frying:

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 quart vegetable oil, for frying
  • Melted chocolate, for garnish
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish
