Given time, people will try and find a way to deep fry anything. From water to eggs to vegetables, the list goes on and on. So if you stop and turn your head when you hear the words "deep fried candy" just know a lot of people have tried their own variations of it. It's actually not too different than a deep fried Oreo which is immensely popular.

What kinds of Candy are best to Deep Fry?

Realistically speaking, you can deep fry just about any candy if you cover it in batter. Better yet, there are tons of different kinds of batter you can use that may fit certain types of candy better.

However, we find full sized or mini-sized chocolate bars to work best. From snickers to milky way, we recommend going with whatever your favorite bars. It makes sense to find the candy bars that offer multiple layers of flavor from chocolate to nuts, similar to what Snickers brings to the table.

Here's a short list of candy bars that you may be interested in deep frying.

  • Kit-Kats
  • Snickers
  • Milky Way
  • Hersey's 
  • Reese's
  • Butterfingers
  • Crunch
  • Mars
  • Mounds

Ingredients for Deep Fried Candy Bars

When it comes to making batters for deep fried candy, the choice is yours. Each batter can be altered with one or two ingredients to add a bit of extra flavor. For example, if you want a bit of a chocolate taste in your batter, you can add cocoa powder.


Batter#1: The Bisquick Batter

This is how you make deep fried candy with Bisquick (pancake) mix.

  • Pancake Mix (1-1/2 Cups)
  • Large Egg (1)
  • Milk (1 Cup)
  • Candy Bar of Choice
  • Toppings may include chocolate drizzle or powdered sugar

This is the same batter we used to make Deep Fried Oreos. If you're only wanting to try one or two candy bars, you can cut the ingredients in 1/2 to not produce too much batter.

Batter #2: Flour based

  • Flour (1 cup)
  • Sugar (2 tablespoons)
  • Baking Powder (1 teaspoon)
  • Large Egg (1)
  • Milk (1 Cup)
  • Candy Bar of Choice
  • Toppings may include chocolate drizzle or powdered sugar

We used the Bisquick batter when making our deep fried mini candy bars. We did this because at the time we were also making some deep fried Oreos, so it simply made the most sense.

Making the Batter

Regardless of what kind of batter you make, it's a pretty simple process. Simply put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then add the egg and milk. Stir until mixed well. For the best results, we recommend putting the batter in the fridge. This helps the batter stick to the candy better, securing it properly once the candy is put into the deep fryer.
