Part of the fun is "guessing" the shapes of the ollie bolen when they are done. They do not form into perfect balls, each one has little "appendages" that make them look like animals and such. It's a lot like making shapes out of clouds, except you can eat them.
Then the next step is to roll the hot, crusty dough balls in cinnamon sugar....mmmmm.....
Then you sit around with about 50 other people and eat them and lick your fingers!
Then you hug the cooks and waddle home to take your cholesterol meds.
