    Thanks Cheffie!

    I will try it again, probably next week, it's going to take me awhile to find that balsamic you mentioned, as our food workers are on strike here too, so I have to travel to find a decent selection.

      Fair Goers Feed On Fried Snickers

      DALLAS -- Don't have enough fat in your life? Try some deep-fried candy.

      The Wall Street Journal reports visitors to the Texas State Fair have had a chance to boost their cholesterol higher than Big Tex, the fair's giant cowboy.

      Fair goers lined up at Butch Benavides' booth to buy deep-fried Snickers. He says the batter has to be just right. If it's too thin, the chocolate melts. But if it's too thick, the candy bar puffs up like a fried pie.

      Benavides says another secret to fried confections is keeping them on a stick. He says fair goers like to eat on the go.

      For those of you who'd like to try frying a candy bar or two at home, here's the method:

      You'll need a good batter, something sticky enough to hold onto the bar, but one that won't puff up too much and turn your bar into a biscuit. Storebought funnel cake or beer-batter mixes, chilled for 30 minutes before use, will do the trick.

      Next, you'll want to make sure the bars are ready. For home deep fryers, the snack-size bars are easier to handle than full-size ones. Put a wooden skewer through each unwrapped bar longwise, then put them in the freezer for 30 minutes until cold all the way through.

      Heat oil in deep fryer to 360° Fahrenheit. Dust each bar with flour, then roll in batter, coating thoroughly. Allow excess to drop off.

      Fry bars, holding onto the end of the skewer to keep them submerged, until batter is golden brown, about four minutes. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

      This is something I would have expected the British to try because they deep fry just about everything... some of which is really not as bad as it sounds. But this one kinda took the prize for the day. (so far anyway)

        27- I am just a wee bit worried about you with these threads you have been posting. I think you need a vacation lad.

            The deep fried candy bars arent just in Texas they were at the SC state fair as well. Not just snickers either, if i remember correctly there was milky way, butterfinger, and 3 muskateer maybe a few others too.

                    no deep fried candy here. I take care of my crew

                    Pan seared then oven roasted and served with a garlic-herb butter. Picture the plate with thick slices with the butter melted over the crust and topped with fresh arugula, freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiao and then drizzled with a lemon garlic vinaigrette.

                        I have a few minutes here between eating and getting on with my history assignment, so I figured I would add what came out of the skillet tonight.

                        BTW, what I describe below is or can be very very spicy hot, so if you are kinda low tolerant, please consider this your "Disclaimer statement". LOL

                        Anyhow, a stop at the local grocery store produced:

                        1 packet prime stew beef
                        1 packet red snapper fillet
                        1 packet stir fry veggies with chicken
                        1 packet jumbo prawns
                        1 packet Uncle Ben's Homestyle Chicken & Wild rice
                        2 Habanaro peppers
                        Cajun spice
                        Frank's Red Hot
                        Lemon juice
                        Garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you have it)

                        1) Prepare the rice according to packet instructions
                        2) clean the prawns as needed, and dice chicken, snapper and beef as desired (I like mine in small bites - LOL)
                        3) throw the meat items into a large skillet, with some olive oil, and pre-cook; add in liberal amounts of garlic powder and Cajun spice and a splash of the lemon juice
                        4) chop the veggies etc to be added once the meat is nearly cooked completely then add in with a liberal dose of Frank's Red Hot and soya souce, ensure that the Habanaro's are diced very fine, they can be "just a little hot" sometimes.
                        5) stir and cook for a about 10 minutes, stirring to ensure nothing sticks/burns (that would suck!! )
                        6) serve

                        When I dished mine up I made sure to splash a little of the meat juice on my rice. (I think we need a Smiley with fire shooting from his mouth )
