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.
