Deep Fried Candy Bars & Oreos

Deep Fried Candy Bars

This is the last recipe I’ll be blogging about from On a Stick!Make sure to read my review of the book here and also the Watermelon Sparkle Pops that were inspired from one of the recipes in the book.

Deep Fried Candy Bars

Deep fried candy bars are typically found in the US in State Fairs. I have yet to see them in England but hear that deep fried Mars bars are common in Scotland. These are definitely only to be enjoyed on special occasions. I chose to deep fry a Snickers bar and a few Oreos.

The photos are a little dark but I only bought one Snickers bar and didn’t have long to photograph it!

These are best served dusted with powdered sugar and shared with someone.
I fried them in my deep fryer but I think a pot like I use for making donuts is better as the candy bars stuck to the basket a little bit.
Deep Fried Candy Bars & Oreos

Yield: 4 candy bars


4 Popsicle sticks

4 candy bars or a mixture of candy bars and Double Stuffed Oreos (I "made" my own double stuffed by twisting apart two regular Oreos and using the two frosted halves)

2 cups vegetable oil

1 cup plain flour

1 cup milk

1/2 tbs sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a stick mid way through each candy bar. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil to 390 F. While that heats up make the batter by whisking the flour, milk, sugar, baking soda and salt together until smooth.
  3. Dip the chilled candy bars and Oreos in the batter and fry for 3-4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
