Deep Fried Candy Bars

A very decadent snack food that is becoming more popular is the deep fried candy bar. It not only sounds decadent, it tastes decadent too. You can use any kind of candy bar you like. You can take lrger bars and cut them into bite sized pieces, you can use fun size bars, or you can go for the total gluttony and do a whole bar.

Typically you can go with your own dough or batter. In a pinch you can use pre-made pizza dough or tubed crescent dough.

One homemade dough mix recipe follows:

Measure 1 cup self-rising flour into a bowl, and whisk in half cup of  soda water to make the batter Adding more of the soda water if the consistency is too thick; you want this just thick enough to adhere easily to the candy bar. The best way to check is to turn a candy bar in it; if the batter sticks well enough, it’s fine.

Another batter recipe:

1 cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Mix flour, salt, and water until smooth, cover, and let stand at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes. Stir baking powder into batter. Coat candy bars.

In the mean time, heat the frying oil in your deep fryer. When it comes up to temperature, 350-375 degrees F. place your candy bars in the fryer basket. Fry for about 3 mins. or til golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve.
