Deep-Fried Candy Corn
Warm, crispy balls of fried batter with candy corn hidden inside. You won't believe how good candy corn can taste!
Servings 24 pieces
- 2 cups all-purpose baking mix Bisquick
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 to 3/4 cups buttermilk
- 3/4 cup candy corn, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup cornflakes cereal
- Vegetable oil
- Powdered sugar
In a large bowl, mix together Bisquick, the egg, and buttermilk.
Stir in candy corn and cornflakes.
Pour 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven and heat to a temperature of 350 degrees. I like to attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan.
Carefully drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough into oil. Fry about 6 at a time and cook for about 1 minute per side.
Drain on a wire rack placed over paper towels.
To serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Makes about 24 Deep-Fried Candy Corn Balls.
