Growing up, we called these Honey Balls, even though they are not prepared with honey. They were sweet, crunchy and yummy, and that was an easy name for them. These crispy balls of fried dough are soaked in syrup and are amazingly good. I like offering them when we have a group of eight or more with a colorful fruit platter next to them. I am always asked how I get them so crisp on the outside and light and airy on the inside. The answer is potato.
