Last year, during our yearly Magrath celebration weekend we plugged in the deep fryer and ate battered and deep fried Twinkies, Peanut Butter Cups and Twix bars. They were so delicious that we put a limit on our consumption, we're only allowed these deep fried treats once a year, I'm pretty sure that's all our bodies can handle so when this weekend rolled around we were excited to repeat the experience. We made a few changes and added a couple rules. Not only are we only allowed to eat them once a year we're also only allowed three treats per evening. If we want to add something we need to subtract.
Everything we made we deep fried in funnel cake batter and since we knew they were delicious we started with Reese's Peanut Butter cups, only we used the mini ones. They're awesome and will make a third appearance next year.
While looking for a good funnel cake recipe (which I found here and highly recommend) I stumbled on the most amazing idea... Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. She gives an egg-less recipe and this was hands down our favourite treat. We did make the usual Twinkies but they were so overshadowed by the cookie dough we don't even need to make them next year, we all wanted more cookie dough.
Next year we're going to try some deep fried cheesecake.
We also enjoyed some funnel cake with strawberries and cream. It was a good evening and I already look forward to next year.
