Deep-Fried Snickers Bar!

April 20, 2011

This post was originally titled, “Deep-Fried Snickers Bar and Mini Funnel Cakes!” I figured adding the funnel cakes into the title would take away from the sheer decadence and outrageousness of a Deep-Fried Snickers Bar. Now, there are a few blog viewers who don’t live here in the US, and some might be unfamiliar with such an American delicacy! One of the best ways to sinfully indulge yourself is at the County Fair. An annual festival that delights in deep-fried, high-fat, high-caloric foods and snacks! I’ve always loved funnel cakes at the county fair. That crisp, yellow batter deep-fried until golden, then dusted with powdered sugar and dolloped with a generous amount of whipped cream! So very delicious! In recent years, the fair has added some outrageous foods, dipped into that same funnel cake batter recipe – such as deep-fried Oreos, deep-fried White Castle burgers, deep-fried Mars bar, deep-fried Pepsi (yep!!!), and even deep-fried frog legs! I’ve tried all of them except the frog legs! One of my all-time favorite candy bars is a Snickers. It’s classic, full of caramel, nougat, peanuts… it reminds me so much of elementary school! I found a great funnel cake recipe and I figured why not dip my favorite candy bar into it?

The final outcome? …HEAVEN!!!!!!! It reminded me of a thick crepe, with melted Nutella, caramel, nuts and whipped cream!


3 2/3 cups all purpose flour

2 tsps baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

2 cups milk

1 tsp vanilla

vegetable oil (for frying)

powdered sugar

Snicker bars

whipped cream

chocolate sauce

nut topping (optional)


1. freeze Snicker bars

2. preheat a cast iron casserole with vegetable oil to 375 degrees

2. when Snicker bars are frozen, use a wooden skewer and dip Snickers into the batter then release battered candy bar into the oil. deep fry on both sides until golden brown

3. serve with powdered sugar, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, nut toppings


1. in a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside

2. in another bowl, beat eggs and sugar together with a hand mixer. add the milk and vanilla and beat until just incorporated

3. add the dry ingredients in 3 additions and beat until smooth

4. preheat an iron skillet, adding about 1 inch of oil to the bottom. place a round cookie cutter in the skillet. temperature of the oil should be around 375 degrees

5. with a large ziplock bag, transfer some of the batter into the bag. Cut a small opening on the bottom corner of the bag – rendering you a homemade pastry bag. use a finger to plug the hole and carefully extract the batter by pushing the top of the bag with your right hand and directing the bottom tip into the cookie cutter. deep fry until golden brown on both sides

6. dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream. you can also add chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, etc.

    I love this Boogie. When I was an apprentice chef one of my chefs (a really big fat guy) who could make the most melt in your mouth french food decided to treat us one day (a rare & almost spiritual event I tell ya) & he served up deep fried Mars Bars (do you guys have Mars Bars…., similar to Snickers).
    We all sat there in silence (a huge kitchen, huge staff of some 16 chefs) all in absolutely awe as to the party in our mouths happening – you see we had no idea exactly what he’d made for us as we didn’t see him cooking or opening the wrappers of Mars Bars. I’ve gotta tell you we all thought we’d died & gone to heaven or he’d just created the next big recipe that would take the culinary world by storm………, until he told us we were all eating fried mars bars.
    They were awesome I tell ya…, thanks for the memories my friend 🙂

    To see these pictures and not be able to taste them is absolute torture!

    This is way better than anything you’d actually taste at a fair. I’d somehow missed out on the deep-fried White Castle burgers, you really do learn something new every day. Oh, and on the fried legs… you can do it!
