Fried Oreos

We all have seen those booths at state fairs.  You know, the ones who fry everything? Kool-aid, laffy taffy, and butter are some of the wacky things we have heard of, but today we are going to give you the simple steps to make a state fair classic... fried Oreos. If you're not intrigued you should be because these are a sure crowd-pleaser.  Ready for the recipe?

Fried Oreos

- 2 cups Drum Rock Products Fis-Chic
- 2 cups water
- package of oreos
- oil for frying
- fryollator or deep pan

1. Heat oil in fryollator or pan to 375 degrees F

2. In bowl, mix 2 cups Fis-Chic and 2 cups water until most of the lumps are gone.  You can play with the proportions of the Fis-Chic and water depending on how thick you want the coating outside the Oreo to be.

3. Once up to temp, dip oreos into batter, allow to drip, then fry on each side for around 2 minutes (or until a light golden brown).  Let cool on a paper towel.

These Oreos should melt in your mouth and are sure to have you running to the front of the line at the frying booth at your next state fair.

Fried Macaroni and Cheese Balls

It was one of everyone's favorite foods growing up, and restaurants are always looking for new ways to serve it to the "big kids" who come in. It's soft, cheesy, and fried. Yes you read that right. Mac and Cheese is now fried, and trust me: it's better than ever.

Fried Mac and Cheese Balls


- 3 1/4 cups Drum Rock Products Fis-Chic
- 2 cups water
- 2 boxes macaroni and cheese
- oil to fry in
- fryolator

1. Prepare the 2 boxes of macaroni and cheese as described on the box. (If you're feeling ambitious, here are some great recipes for homemade mac and cheese)

2. Put finished macaroni and cheese into fridge to cool for at least 2 hours.

3. On cookie sheets lined with wax paper, press macaroni into meatball size balls.  Put into freezer and leave overnight.


4. Put oil in fryolator and heat to 350 degrees F.

5. In one bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups of Drum Rock Fis-Chic and 2 cups water.  In a separate bowl, scoop 2 cups of Drum Rock Fis-Chic.  The first bowl will be your wash and the second will be your breader.

6. Making sure to keep the pasta in the freezer until the last second, dip the individual balls of mac and cheese first into the wash, and then into the breader.  Make sure to let the wash drip before transferring to the breader.

7. Place carefully into the fryolator and let cook until golden brown, or about 3 to 4 minutes.  About half way through the cooking time, flip the ball of pasta over in the oil using a utensil.

8. Set on paper towels to drain, and serve hot

Suggested dipping sauces: Marinara, Salsa, and anything else you can come up with! Let us know your favorite combinations!
