Deep Fried Candy Bars & Oreos

Deep Fried Candy Bars

This is the last recipe I’ll be blogging about from On a Stick!Make sure to read my review of the book here and also the Watermelon Sparkle Pops that were inspired from one of the recipes in the book.

Deep Fried Candy Bars

Deep fried candy bars are typically found in the US in State Fairs. I have yet to see them in England but hear that deep fried Mars bars are common in Scotland. These are definitely only to be enjoyed on special occasions. I chose to deep fry a Snickers bar and a few Oreos.

The photos are a little dark but I only bought one Snickers bar and didn’t have long to photograph it!

These are best served dusted with powdered sugar and shared with someone.
Deep Fried Candy Bars
adapted from On a Stick (makes 4 candy bars)
Ingredients
4 Popsicle sticks
4 candy bars or a mixture of candy bars and Double Stuffed Oreos (I “made” my own double stuffed by twisting apart two regular Oreos and using the two frosted halves)
2 cups vegetable oil
Batter
1 cup plain flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Deep Fried Candy Bars
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a stick mid way through each candy bar. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat the oil to 390 F. While that heats up make the batter by whisking the flour, milk, sugar, baking soda and salt together until smooth.

3. Dip the chilled candy bars and Oreos in the batter and fry for 3-4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.

I fried them in my deep fryer but I think a pot like I use for making donuts is better as the candy bars stuck to the basket a little bit.

Oreo Cake Pops

Oreo Cake Pops
I’ve been on a cake pop kick lately. My sister sent me some Oreo cake icing and I knew I couldn’t make cupcakes after my recent tirade. Cake pops are a great way to use up the bits and pieces of cake paraphernalia I’ve accumulated.
Oreo Cake Pops
I used a yellow cake mix, mixed with the Oreo icing, dipped in white and milk chocolate (that Dr. Oetker sent me) and sprinkled with finely crushed Oreo cookies.

I made the cake balls froze them overnight and then dipped them when I got home from work. These are tasty and quick for weeknight baking.

by me!
Ingredients
1 box cake mix
1-2 packages Oreo icing (if you don’t live in the US or have little sisters that send you stuff you can make your own Oreo icing by folding some crushed cookies into vanilla icing)
milk and/or white chocolate for dipping
1 roll Oreo cookies
Lolly sticks
Oreo Cake Pops
This made one 8 inch cake round (a typical cake mix makes 2). I got this at the $1 store!
1. Make the cookie crumbs by throwing in a good handful of Oreo’s in a food processor and grind until fine.

2. Make the cake according to the package (or make one from scratch). Set aside (or in the fridge) to cool.

3. Once the cake is cool crumble it finely with a fork. Squeeze half of the frosting into the cake and stir until it starts to combine. Add more frosting as needed (I used the whole tube). If you used a regular cake mix you might need 2 pouches.

4. Using an ice cream scoop make a round shape using 2 scoops of cake for each one. Line on a baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes stick the lolly stick in each and freeze over night (use a dab of melted chocolate on the end when you stick them in).

5. Once the pops are firm, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on 30 second intervals. Dip each pop in and shake off the excess. Sprinkle with the cookie crumbs straight away as it will set quickly! Store in an airtight container.
