Fried Halloween Candy


Happy Halloween from all of us at Drum Rock!!! 


We thought we would celebrate in style by frying up a few Trick-or-Treat favorites for you guys. So here is our treat of the day - Fried Halloween Candy.

If you are looking for a great way to add a little excitement and extra deliciousness to all that leftover candy, then grab a bag of Drum Rock Fis-Chic and follow our lead. After all, melted morsels of chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel wrapped in a warm and fluffy layer sound pretty much irresistible, right? So why would you want to deprive yourself any longer?


Fried Halloween Candy





Ingredients:
  • 20-30 pieces of chocolate fun-sized candy bars of choice
  • 3-½ cups Drum Rock Products Fis-Chic
  • ¾ to 1 cup water
  • Oil for frying
  • Fryolator
  • Tongs

Directions:

We chose to fry fun-size Milky Ways, Snickers Peanut Butter Squares, and mini Snickers, but feel free to cook up anything you’d like. There’s no wrong way when it comes to frying chocolate!!

1. Unwrap the candy you intend to fry; put in a Ziploc bag, then place in the freezer for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight).


2. Fill the fryolator with oil and turn to 375° F.

3. Add 2-½ cups Fis-Chic to a large bowl and slowly mix in about ¾ to 1 cup of water until desired consistency is reached (you want a thick, pancake-like batter so you get a good coat).

4. Once the oil is up to temp, remove candy bars from the freezer. Add about 1 cup of dry Fis-Chic to the bag; seal bag, then shake vigorously so all bars are well dusted.



5. Then, working in batches, remove candy bars from Ziploc bag and shake off excess Fis-Chic before transferring to the wet batter. Coat all sides of each candy bar with the wet batter (it helps to use a fork so that your fingers don’t cause the candy to warm up and melt).



6. Once covered, use a fork to hold each candy bar and allow excess batter to drip off before carefully placing in the oil.


6. Depending on the size of the candy bar, each one should take about 2-3 minutes to cook. Make sure the outside is golden brown, then remove to a paper towel/plate and allow to cool slightly.

7. Drizzle with some chocolate or caramel sauce and dust with a bit of powered sugar before enjoying.




These fried mini-candy bars had an amazingly crispy crunch on the outside and were so perfectly melted on the inside that no one around here could resist. And the chocolate sauce and powered sugar definitely took them to the next level. They are best fresh, so be sure to gobble them up when they're still warm!

Halloween is not just a holiday for kids to enjoy - it is most certainly meant for adults, too! So if you're looking for a new and exciting way to enjoy your ghoulish treats, dressing them up with a little Drum Rock is the way to do it!
















Enjoy & Have a Happy Halloween!!
