How To Make Deep Fried Snickers® Candy Bars Without the Mess

Share on:

Deep Fried Candy Bars Are A Truly Decadent Dessert That Will Make Your Guests Jump for Joy!

If you’ve ever been to a carnival or country fair then you know that there is very little in this world that can’t be deep-fried, including entire sticks of butter (gasp!)!

By far, my favorite sinfully delicious, once-in-a-while, ok-why-not battered carnival fare is the deep fried candy bar. But why wait for the midway to arrive in town? You can easily make your own battered and fried Snickers® at home. The best part of this particular recipe (aside from the ooey gooey sweet goodness encased in the fried shell) is the fact that it is fried outside on the grill. Learn more about the grill frying technique here). That means no mess and no lingering “fried food” smells in your kitchen!

Feel free to substitute other candy bars in this recipe. Just be sure to refrigerate them before deep-frying. Do not freeze the candy bars as frozen candy bars will not heat through during the frying process.

Method

  • Prep. Refrigerate the candy bars for at least 30 minutes or several hours.
  • To prepare the batter, combine 1 cup/125.2 g of the flour with the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir to combine all of the dry ingredients.
  • Add the egg, vanilla extract, and milk to the dry ingredients. Whisk to create a smooth batter.
  • Fire up. Add 1 inch/25.4 mm of oil to a pot or cast-iron Dutch oven, place it on the grill, and preheat to 375°F/190.6°C. This technique is referred to as grill frying and is a great way to avoid the smells and mess associated with deep-frying indoors.
  • Prep again. Place the remaining 1/4 cup/31.3 g of flour in a shallow bowl. Remove one of the candy bars from the refrigerator and roll it in the flour until fully coated. Fully immerse the flour coated candy bar in the wet batter.

  •  Cook. With tongs, pull the candy bar out of the batter, allow some of the excess batter to drip off, then gently slide the candy it into the oil. Flip the battered candy bar often and fry until the batter is golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Lift the deep fried candy bar out of the oil with tongs or a spider strainer, and place it on paper towels to drain. Repeat the process with the second candy bar.
