“Oh, LAWWW DOOGGGG! Where’s the recipe for DeepFried Twinkies??? LOL”
The recipe for Deep Fried Twinkies a/k/a Death on a Popsicle Stick:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
The recommended amount of cooking oil for your fryer.
Take your Twinkies and impale them on the popsicle sticks. Leave enough stick protruding from the twinkie to make a decent grip and bung the twinkies into the freezer over-night.
On the day of the deed, mix your flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate dish, mix your milk, vinegar and oil. Once the liquids are mixed, whisk them into the dry mix and mix until smooth. This is your batter, toss it into the fridge.
Heat your fryer to about 375.
Once the oil is at the proper temperature, take your twinkies from the freezer, dust lightly with flour, and swish through the batter mix, making sure to coat evenly and fully.
Holding your twinkie stick with some tongs, dunk it into the oil. It’s going to try to float, so hold it under the surface until it turns a nice golden brown — usually about three to four minutes.
Toss twinkie onto a paper towel, allow to drain, and consume.
If your cardiologist finds out you’ve been eating these, I didn’t post this, I wasn’t here, and you must have gotten the recipe from my evil twin, Skippy.
