Mix salt, sugar, water, and yeast. Set aside for 5 minutes
Melt butter with milk in the microwave
Add melted butter , egg and milk to the yeast mixture , followed by flour and cocoa powder and mix thoroughly with spoon or hands
Let the mixture rise for approximately 1- 2 hours
In a large, sauce pan pour vegetable oil into a pot, until it is at least 3 inches (or about 5 centimeters) high (too little will result in flatter balls), and place on low heat.
Test to make sure the oil is hot enough by putting a ‘drop’ of batter into the oil. If it is not hot enough, the batter will stay at the bottom of the pot rather than rising to the top.
Using your hands grab a little bit of mixture at time and drop in the oil
When the oil is hot enough, use a spoon to dish up the batter, and another spoon or spatula to drop it in the oil, sort of in the shape of a ball.
Fry for a few minutes until the bottom side is golden brown.
Turn the ball over and fry for a few more minutes until the other side is golden brown.
Use a large spoon or something like that to take it out of the oil. I usually place them on napkins right away to soak up some of the excess oil.
Melt cream, butter and chocolate chips and mix.
Serve chocolate sauce with these puff-puff.
