Yes I did try to deep-fry a Snicker bar. Of course everyone already knows that I recently purchased a turkey deep fryer, my adventure is in this thread, picture story is here.

Here was the plan. Wrap the Snickers bars in piecrust dough with a little cinnamon and have at it for about two minutes in the deep fryer.






Well that was a disaster, didnít cook all the way, pie dough was only half baked, a quick re-dip in the hot oil proved fruitless. I drowned my sorrows in the left over candy bars while I pondered a new strategy over the course of a week.

- - - - - - - - - - -

Ok then, lets try again. This time Iíll flatten out the dough real thin and fry them up that way. I used larger bars and even tried a Milky Way bar for grins and giggles.



Well long story short, The Snickers bar had a blow out and the oil started boiling furiously, it was your basic Chernobyl, nothing left but charred remnants of a once perfectly good Snickers bar. Iíll spare you the graphic pics. Nothing satisfying about that at all.

The Milky Way bar fared better, crispy on the outside and the caramel nugget was toasty warm. It was ok, interesting but nothing to write home about. Nothing ventured, nothing gained for my little appetizer attempt.

My back up plan was a feast of Cajun pepper seasoned, deep fried turkey quarters and drumsticks. Cripsy on the outside, so juicy, succulent, mouth watering and flavorful.



Itís time now for a nice after-dinner nap.



Ah, life is good. (,,, but I won't be ruining any more Snickers bars,,,)


EDIT,,, resized pictures smaller for quicker loading.

Tip to deep friers: high water content = bad. I hade some dumplings with alot of cabbig in them and one popped open and it was ....well it was bad.

I used to deep fry cand bars all the time. I used equal parts flour and water for the batter and it worked just fine. it only took a couple minutes to cook and they were melted all the way through.

I have a friend that swears that eating a Hersy Bar dipped in Nacho cheese was yummy!

Never had the nerve to try it. Plus I don't like chocolate to begin with.

Try deep frying a Mars bar - they are so damn good. A bar down the street sells these. They actually cook them up in the same oil they use for their chicken wings so you even get a bit of deep fried chicken taste.

Healthy living, my arse.

I can see that. Chocolate and cheese go well together. Try just some regular cheddar with a chocolate bar.

And for desert - country fried bacon!

I still dip my peanut m&m's in nacho cheese. Yesterday, I had some nacho cheese left over from a party so I ran downstairs to the vending machines and grabbed a bag.

You need to put the bars in the freezer before you coat them in a batter to deep fry them. That is how they do them at the fair.
Here is a recipe I found.

DEEP-FRIED CANDY BARS

1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
Chocolate-covered candy bars (Mars, Snickers, Zero, Almond Joy, Twix or Kit Kat)
4 cups oil for frying
Bamboo skewers

Combine egg, milk and vegetable oil in a cup. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well with a whisk.

Cover and chill for a few minutes as you heat the oil. Use a chocolate covered candy bar for best results and make sure that it is chilled. Some bars work better if frozen. After the candy bars are chilled and skewered, remove the batter from the refrigerator.

Heat oil or shortening in a medium skillet to 375 degrees. Dip the chilled candy bar in the batter and gently place into the oil. Cook only until the outside is golden.

Remove and drain on brown paper. Allow to cool for a few minutes because the inside can easily burn your mouth.
