Nigella Lawson Deep Fried Candy Bars

2 quarts sunflower oil, for deep frying
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup soda water
8 fun-size chocolate coconut bars (recommended: Mounds)

Heat sunflower oil in a deep-fat fryer or a Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, add 1 cup of flour. Gently whisk in 3/4 cup of soda water, if the batter is too thick, add the 1/4 cup. It should be able to coat the candy bar easily. Submerge each chocolate coconut bar in the batter and place it right into the hot oil either with your fingers or tongs, allowing it to fry for about 3 minutes or until the batter is puffed up and golden brown. Using a tongs remove the battered chocolate coconut bars and place them on a paper towel lined plate. Transfer them to a plate, enjoy immediately.

Use leftover batter to make funnel cakes.


We used this recipe to deep fry a whole lot of items. Did not make the pineapple stuff. The batter for this is amazing, though!! We deep fried some oreos, mini candy bars, york peppermint patties, and mini toblerones. The oreos were AWESOME!! You have got to try this!! We heated Canola oil in a wok pan on the stove and it worked great. Use the extra batter to make yourself a funnel cake! So good!
