Prepare chocolate dough mix according to directions.
Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll into balls, and place on the counter covered with a damp cloth or towel.
Chop walnuts in a food processor until finely chopped. In a bowl, mix together the walnuts and cinnamon. Divide the mixture in half, and spread mixture evenly onto two plates.
Heat honey in the microwave or on the stove top, being careful not to bring to a boil. Pour into a small bowl.
Place a saucepan on the stove, fill with oil 3 in. deep. Heat over medium heat.
Once the oil is ready, fry balls on one side for 30 seconds. Turn over, and fry for another 30 seconds. Remove balls from the oil with tongs, and dip in honey. Roll balls into the nut and cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.
