Introduction: Deep Fried Snickers


snickers bars
candy sticks(or chopsticks work)

 for the batter:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 eggs – beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
vegetable oil – enough to fry

 Vertically insert candy sticks half way into desired number of snickers bars. Place candy bars onto a baking sheet/plate lined with parchment paper/silpat and place in freezer until candy bar hardens.

 Place enough vegetable oil into a deep sided frying pan {or deep frying machine} and heat to 375 degrees. I use a candy thermometer to monitor my oil temperature.

 Into a large bowl add: milk, eggs, 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Whisk to combine. Set aside.

Into a separate bowl add: salt, sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Whisk to combine. GRADUALLY add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix until well incorporated.

 Dredge frozen candy bars in batter mixture. Tap off excess.

 CAREFULLY place battered candy bars into the hot oil. Do not crowd pan. Cook until golden. Turning so it’s evenly browned on all sides. Transfer candy bars to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
