Deep Fried Twinkies?

Anybody here ever had em??

I hope this is an okay place to post this....

lol I'm sure these are horribly unhealthy, but they're soooo goooood! They're worth trying at least once..

Here's how I make them..

1 C. milk
2 Tbsp. vinegar
1 Tbsp. Oil
1 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt


Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours, or overnight.

Heat 4 cups of vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.

To make batter: Mix together milk, vinegar and oil. In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continu mixing until smooth. Regrigerate while oil heats.

Dust the twinkies with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate twinkie until batter covers entire cake. Place carefully in hot oil. The twinkies will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browning. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.

Remove twinkie to paper towel and let dain. Allow twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and enjoy!!

I had heard of these before but I wondered if it was for real. Thanks for posting the recipe. I might actually make these once for fun! (Or if I ever think I'll need the "Twinkie Defense" - these sound like they'd guarantee an acquittal!!!)

OMG as if Twinkies weren't bad enough for us already, LOL. But, might be fun to try it out with the kids, if at least just once to say I did it and had em! ;)

Well, that's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it!

Deep-fried Twinkies are a staple here for fire department, etc. fundraisers. I've never had one but I think I'll have to try one now.

At our state fair the thing every year is to come up with something else deep fried.
I think they did the Twinkies last year.
A few others....
Deep fried Oreo cookies
Deep fried Snickers bar
Deep fried pickle on a stick (that's the other thing, stuff on a stick)
deep fried pork chop on a stick

there's more but I can't remember, havent gone in awhile!

Just found an article with pictures on deep fried Oreos. Sounds like it might work.

lol. one of my favorite subjects... FRYING DESSERT! woooohoooooooo!

If you take three cans of cola and let them flatten, and reduce them until they coat a spoon, you can replace half the milk in most batters, put the batter into a piping bag and pipe it directly into the fryer in small streams (wear heavy gloves) you can actually have fried coke. Fish them out and let them sit on a paper towel for a bit, and Cover with powdered sugar. VERY tasty as a garnish for ice cream. EXTREMELY SWEET use caution.
