  1. Hello, I was wondering if this recipe would work for normal or mini donuts too? I’m asking because these donut holes remind me of these mini chocolate powdered sugar donuts I use to buy all the time but I can’t find them anywhere and I can only find vanilla at the store, I really miss the chocolate ones.
