Happy Fried-Day! (April edition)

Well, here we are again: another Fried-Day! I honestly think these are one of my favorite posts to write because they are usually so ridiculous. Seriously, deep fried bacon? Who thinks of these things? (And where are they because I want to give them a big ol' hug!)

Before getting ourselves all battered and fried today, I wanted to share a link to a fun slide show with ya. I came across it on Delish and it was all about weird fried foods! Take a click through and let me know if there's any that you've tried, want to try, or would-never-eat-even-for-a-million-dollars. Personally, the Little Nookies sound right up my alley...the tarantulas? Not so much.

Alright, drum roll please! This month's Fried-Day features........


Deep fried Snickers!

My babe and I snagged these beauts at Atlantic Beer Garden in Boston last summer. (Great place, by the way - outdoor seating by the water, fabulously enormous orders of nachos, and these lovelies, of course.) Snickers are - in the own right - a pretty fantastic candy bar. They have so much going on already: chocolate, nougat, caramel, and peanuts. Might as well kick it up a notch, right? 

You betcha! Toss that baby into some batter and let it take a swim into some hot oil. When the bar comes out,  the chocolate bar inside has started to soften into perfect consistency - contrasting well with the crispy blanket of heaven on the outside. Why stop now? Let's gild the lily with a drizzle of chocolate sauce...and  serve it alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream, strawberries, and whipped cream. Seriously? You can't ask for a much more decadent dessert. (And surprisingly gorgeous for a deep fried treat!) *drool*

These are making me ponder the possibilities of other deep fried candy bars. Oh boy, I might have opened my own personal Pandora's box with this one... ;)

  1. Um, wow. This looks crazy good.

    There's this huge fair that I go to every couple of years (this summer will actually be 2 years in a row), and they released the new food vendor items this week.

    One of them? Deep fried Wagon Wheels. Thought you'd appreciate that :)
