These little yummies taste just like those mini cinnamon sugar donuts you get at the fair… only with no line ups!! Just 3 easy ingredients and these babies are ready to go!

I played with many different methods.. the smaller size just made better donut holes.  They cooked through quickly and only took a couple of minutes.  I used two paper bowls to toss them in sugar.  It was easy to just transfer them back and forth between the bowls to get them coated.
