Fried Candy Bars

Fried Candy Bars
The miniature candy bars work very well for this recipe.

1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
Candy bars (Mars, Snickers, Almond Joy, Kit Kat or Twix)

Chill or freeze the candy bars

Combine egg, milk and vegetable oil in a cup.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well with a wire whisk. Cover and chill for a few minutes while the oil heats.

Remove batter from the refrigerator and adjust the consistency if necessary. Heat about 4 cups of oil or shortening to 375 degrees F. Dip the chilled candy bar in the batter and gently place into the oil. Cook only until the outside is golden. Remove and drain on brown paper. Allow to cool for a minute as the inside can easily burn your mouth.

I've heard rumours that this started in British chips shops, and one that chalked it up to an ex-US president...

Simply too sinful for my thighs to handle, though it does have a certain allure

Deep Fried Mars Bars began in Scotland, up in Fife somewhere if i remember correctly. It gradually spread as people found out about such an odd thing. I'm yet to try one. There's a fast food place in Minnesota iirc that does deep fried cheescake.
