The batter for these Deep-Fried Candy Bars is quick and easy. Other than that, all that is needed is a deep fryer or pan filled with oil, a few fun-size candy bars, and a little powdered sugar for sprinkling. If you object to the smell of deep frying in the house, you can reserve a clean place in the garage (I have a tool bench that I keep impeccably clean exclusively reserved for deep-frying and other stinky cooking) or on the patio (make sure it’s covered and dry so that no one gets electrocuted if it rains or gets damp). Deep-Fried Candy Bars are always a big hit at children’s parties; they can even be put on a stick before freezing and deep frying so the kids can hold them.
