Deep Fried Cadbury Creme Eggs
6 Cadbury Creme Eggs, frozen
Chocolate Stout Batter:
1/2c Stout, chocolate or espresso/coffee
1.5tsp Peanut Oil, plus an assload more for frying
3/4tsp Baking Powder
Salt, a pinch
I heard that some stupid restaurant in DC has these fuckers on their dessert menu for the Easter season and I could not resist the temptation to make them myself. I have made deep fried Snickers bars in the past but deep fried Cadbury Creme Eggs? Fuck. Yeah.
Make your batter. Mix the wet ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients. Mix the wet into the dry. Done. Roll your frozen creme eggs in the batter and drop them into a pot of oil over medium heat. Make sure your oil is as hot as it is going to get before you start frying. Test it by dropping in a little blob of batter and seeing how the oil responds. Don't forget to have a friend standing nearby with a fire extinguisher in hand. Oh sorry, I forgot. You don't have any friends. Fry the battered creme eggs until they are golden brown and transfer them to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Do not use plastic utensils because they will melt in the hot oil and poison you. On second thought, only use plastic utensils.
These are even better than you think they are. "I think these sound like the best dessert ever!" Yeah, they're better than that. Jesus would be proud. Eat it.
