Mr. Pisano’s Review:

I really enjoyed these delicacies. They reminded me of an Italian zeppole, except they are moister with a chocolate kick.  I love zeppole, and this adds to the fun of eating them. They are heavy in texture and eating more than two or three will be pushing your limits. Frying dough is hard, but Laura did a good job in enhancing an old Italian recipe. They will be fine as a before or after dinner treat.
