Deep-Fried Candy Bars
-2 quarts sunflower oil, for deep frying
-1 cup self-rising flour1 cup soda water
-1 10.5 oz bag mini sized candy bars (I used a bag with a mix of Twix, Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, and Snickers)
-Powdered sugar and/or ice cream, caramel and chocolate syrups, for garnish
At least 7 hours before you plan to make Deep-Fried Candy Bars pop the bars in the freezer. After the bars have spent their time in the freezer, heat sunflower oil in a dutch oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, add the flour and gently whisk in the soda water. Start with 3/4 cup of the water and continue until you’ve reached the consistency of a thick pancake batter. You are looking for batter that is able to cover the bars easily. Submerge each bar in the batter and place it right in the hot oil, allowing it to fry for about 3 minutes or until the batter is puffed up and golden brown. You will need to work in batches to keep from lowering the oil temperature significantly. Using tongs remove the battered bars and place them on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer them to a separate plate and dust with powdered sugar or top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and caramel syrup.
