Deep Fried Anything?

The Fair is a great place for fun, family, and FOOD! lots of it! 

this past summer, i went to a couple of fairs and they served me THIS!
 (above: deep fried snickers)
 (above: deep fried cookie dough)
(above: deep fried twinkie, oreos, and snickers!)

i seriously loved all that fried goodness, that i decided it was going to happen...i was gonna make it happen in my life!

I made batches, batches, and batches of all sorts of fried stuff... here were the successful ones that made it into pictures!

(above: the very first deep fried snickers i ever made. as you can see, i used the fun size snickers. it's easier to fry and they are less filling than the large ones. that way you can eat all 4 of them! hahahahah)
just drizzle some chocolate syrup and dash some powdered sugar on them and serve! seriously, it took about 10-15 minutes to prepare and cook these, and the whole plate was gone in 2 minutes.

Now here's a close up!
So this next batch, I ran out of milk, so I replaced it with some condensed milk and evaporated milk and they seriously tasted like donut holes.
It got a little out of control with the powdered sugar. You must know I love that stuff!

And now, onto the recipes.

Deep fried snickers and Oreos

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk (i use 2%)
1/2 tbsp sugar (i use a little less than that)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt (i use just a pinch)

powdered sugar, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup for serving (optional)

1) freeze snickers and Oreos over night or for at least 1 hour.
2) prepare batter: mix all the ingredients together.
3) heat a small-medium sized sauce pan filled with vegetable oil (enough to submerge the snickers and Oreos), to medium heat.
4) Roll frozen snicker or Oreo in flour (cover well), tap excess, then dip into prepared batter. Remove excess batter by tapping. 
5) FRY! Drop the covered snickers or Oreos into hot oil and cook for about 3-4 minutes, turning once, until it floats and looks golden brown on the outside. 

Tip: Make sure the oil is not too hot or else the batter will burn on the outside and wont cook in the inside. And cook only 4 at a time, so the oil doesn't get too cold too quickly.

Remove from pan, let cool a little, and serve warm. crunchy on the outside, and chocolate-y on the inside.
