Deep Fried Ding Dongs



Welcome Back to Deep Fried Dessert Week.... We have been getting such the raves from everyone over our deep fried Oreo's and candy bites, we have had a lot of people saying how they remember back in the day having these items at the local fair. Along with enjoying these treats many people have reminisced about having a fabulous deep fried Twinkies. I too have had this wonderful item, but I wanted to try something other than a Twinkie for my next deep fried endeavor. I thought of the many beloved Hostess items I could use, such as a Ho Ho or Suzy Q but we finally agreed upon the out of this world goodness of the Ding Dongs.




4 - Ding Dongs (freeze for 3 hours)
1 C. - Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix
1 - Egg
3 Tbs. - Oil
3/4 C. - Cold Water
1 Tsp. - Vanilla

In a mixing bowl combine the waffle mix, oil, egg, water and vanilla until smooth. Unwrap 1 ding dong at a time and cover in the batter. Deep fry at 360 degrees for 1 minutes, make sure to carefully turn the ding dong over after 30 seconds. Once done cooking remove to a cookie sheet lined with paper towel to drain. Cook each remaining ding dong in the same fashion, once all are cooked and drained serve then while they are still warm and crispy.

This makes me think that I need to have a bunch of people over and have a big party where we just fry all of your different treats up! So yummy!

This is getting dangerous for me. I have a box of Ding Dongs in my freezer and Ikea waffle mix in my pantry.....I am tempted.....They look GREAT!!!

Melissa said...

Oh wow! I am drooling!! Can't imagine how yummy those are.

Hubby says he loves you with this one... Ding Dongs are his favorite LOL That might be good with some vanilla ice cream and a bit of whip with some chocolate drizzle for a really decadent dessert. Yummy Mary Beth!! You always have the best stuff!

Donna, Sorry to say that they do not keep all that great. We only made the few and you really kinda need to eat them while they are still hot and crunchy. Once they cool the batter gets soft, my husband still liked it that way but I prefer it crunchy.

Holy moly girl, you are on a deep fry marathon! :)

You are the fry goddess.

Mary Beth! You are killing me girlfriend! I love it, I really love it!

I'm going to get my husband's Crestor, deep fry it and feed it to him! Ain't I a stinker? lol

You had me at "deep fried!" I had a deep fat fried snickers bar at a high end restaurant one time - um, definitely insulin worthy!

But I would still prefer your deep fried pickles!!

Bunny said...

I have that waffle mix!!! I'm gonna make these!!!

Funny! And I thought I had such a great find when I ran across the Deep Fried Twinkies stand at Santa Cruz. Deep Fried Ding Dongs sound much more appealing. With no chocolate I never could understand the attraction of Twinkies anyway.
