Deep-fried candy bars take indulgence to a whole new level. A homemade or store-bought candy bar is dipped in batter, then fried to a golden brown and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The outside is light and crisp, while the inside of the bar liquefies into a gooey, chocolately, caramelly treat. This deep-fried candy bar recipe uses a regular saucepan for frying, but if you have a deep fryer you can use that according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For easily printable instructions, refer to the Deep Fried Candy Bars recipe.

To make this recipe, you will need:

  • Up to 8 full-size candy bars*
  • 8-12 cups of vegetable or peanut oil, depending on your pan
  • 1.5 cups flour, divided
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
*You can use purchased candy bars, or make your own bar from the list at the bottom of this recipe.

Begin by freezing your bars: remove your desired bars from their wrappers, and place them on a cookie sheet. Freeze them for at least 2 hours, until they are solid and frozen throughout.
