Snickers candy bars
funnel cake mix
frying oil

For the funnel cake batter, you can either buy the mix at the store or make your own batter (there are several one's on recipezaar).
Dip frozen Snickers into the batter.

Medium bowl
Metal tongs

Step 2: In a 3-quart saucepot or deep fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees F (medium heat on stove top).
Step 3: While oil is heating, set up a sheet pan with paper towels for draining.

Makes 14 cookies

Deep Fried Twinkies

6 Twinkies
Popsicle sticks
4 cups vegetable oil
Flour for dusting
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight.
Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.
Mix together milk, vinegar and oil.
In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt.
Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth. Refrigerate while oil heats.
Push stick into Twinkie lengthwise, leaving about 2 inches to use as a handle, dust with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake.
Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie 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 drain. Remove stick and allow Twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
