Zeppole With Orange Sugar and Chocolate Sauce

Zeppole With Orange Sugar and Chocolate Sauce
Normally I like to watch food network and try out the dishes especially those cakes and dessert.
It's better to watch the preparation rather than following the recipe from a cook book.Yesterday
I happened to watch Giada making these Southern Italian Doughnuts known Zeppole which are tiny and fluffy balls rolled in orange sugar and dip in chocolate on food network.These balls doesn't need much ingredients and happened to have very single item in my pantry. These wonderfully delicious mouth-watering dessert can be served filled or with just a sprinkling of sugar.

Ingredients
Serving Size:5
Makes about 20 -25 zeppoles

For The Orange Sugar:

1 tbsp orange zest
1/2 cup sugar

Pulse the ingredients in a food processor and keep aside.

For The Chocolate Sauce:
3/4 cup cream
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Heat the cream on low flame and pour over the chocolate chips. then stir to a smooth mixture and transfer to dipping dish.

1 stick butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 water
4 eggs
1tbsp orange zest

Preparation Methods:
Combine the butter,sugar ,salt and water in a saucepan and bring to boil on low heat. Then add the flour and stir until the mixture becomes a soft dough. When the doughs pull away from the side of the pan-remove from flame. Transfer to large bowl and crack the eggs -that's one at a time mixing well. This is the ensure that the eggs doesn't scramble as the dough is hot. Then add the orange zest and beat until smooth. Set aside.Heat the oil over medium heat -carefully drop about a tablespoon of the dough into the hot oil. Turn the zeppole once or twice, cooking until golden and puffed up. Transfer the zeppole to the sugar mixture and roll to coat.Finally serve the hot fluffy coated zeppole alongside the Chocolate Sauce for dipping.
