Cadbury Creme Eggs are my religion. (See Exhibits A, B & C.)
So when my friend Amanda was denied a deep-fried Cadbury Creme Egg at a local establishment that fries them around Easter each year, I had to come to her aid. Her rescue.
Thus, I galloped in on my white horse and…OK. That’s enough.
Much less dramatically, I went to the Googles and found a recipe for fried candy bar batter (isn’t the internet wonderful?). Very simply, I froze UK Cadbury eggs our friend Kate picked up at the aforementioned establishment, battered them and then put them in my grandma’s old Farberware lidded electric fry pan.
***PSA – If you ever have to fry anything, use this pan. It makes frying a breeze and the lid contains the oil that typically sprays *everywhere.*
Were I to make this an annual tradition, as Kate suggests (and really, who am I to argue?), I would truly deep fry them. Turning them in the pan was a bit of a challenge, but though somewhat ugly, they tasted sinfully delicious.
Have you ever deep fried candy at home?
