Deep fried Mars Bar

I know I am into healthy foods nowadays, but sometimes there's always this strange recipe that is sooooooo rich and tasty that you just can't resist posting it. Just ONE deep fried Mars bar can pack up to at least 400 calories. That's huge! One bowl of beef noodle soup or one Mars bar? Choose only one (I cheated. I chose both)

*High Calorie Content Alert* (I figured if cigarettes come with a health warning, this recipe deserves its health warning as well - of course in small font so people won't really notice. Hee hee)

Here's the recipe. Snickers because they have nuts and they rock!

Recipe for Deep Fried Snickers:

For batter:

* 1 cup milk
* 2 tablespoons vinegar
* 1 tablespoon oil
* 1 cup flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt

The other important ingredients

Some Snickers (or other candy bars, even Oreos also can) *Note: I think it's easier to cut your candy bars into smaller pieces*
Oil for deep frying

Method:


1. Make sure your candybar is frozen or in the fridge for some time. Thoroughly mix batter ingredients. Let this batter stand at room temperature 20-30 minutes.


2. Add the baking powder to the batter. Heat up the oil for deep frying.


3. Dip the Mars Bars into the batter, draining off the excess.

4. Fry in 375 degrees farenheit (hot) until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels.

5. Enjoy your rich snack/dessert.

Cucur Pisang? Cucur Ubi? Who needs those when you got this fattening stuff. Seriously sinful and delicious. Imagine - eating a warm fudgey brownie with nuts. Yum!

You can deep fry almost anything. Even Oreos as some FairyMazdan did on her blog. She's Indonesian by the way - so Asians are daring to try stuff as well.

Cucur Oreos!

  4. Nope - it originated from Scotland and there are many recipes online for the batter - but this one's probably one of the better ones.
