While these delicious bite-size treats are ready in minutes, they’ll disappear in a flash. And don’t relegate the deep-fried goodness to the breakfast nook—I’ve never had anyone turn these down no matter the time of day. —Chelsea Turner, Lake Elsinore, CA

"I made these for a secret Santa gift and they were gone in minutes! So quick, super easy (except for getting the batter to stay in ball shapes) and WAY DELICIOUS! Highly recommended! Bonus/Side Note - My house smelled like maple syrup, pancakes and bacon for about two days - it was magical! :0)"
