Deep-Fried Cookie Dough

Deep Fried Cookie Dough

I would like to dedicate this post to Hayley from The Domestic Rebel and Sarah from The CandiQuik blog. Thanks to those two ladies, I was introduced to Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, Texas. Besides having some amazing tacos, they also have deep-fried cookie dough. Having a limited experience will deep-fried desserts, I was overcome with joy as I bit into the soft chocolaty center. Their deep-fried cookie dough was crisp on the outside and soft in the middle with melted chocolate chips. I set out to recreate this deep fried deliciousness at home.

Besides being a little messy, this was pretty fun. Plus, it gave us an excuse to make homemade chicken fingers with the deep fryer (Thanks Jef!). I had some helpers with my deep fried dough and we had a great time. Edible cookie dough is kind of amazing. I coated my cookie dough with a mixture of egg, pancake mix and crushed corn flakes. The corn flakes give the outside a crunchy layer without dominating the cookie dough flavor. I happened to use a deep fryer for mine, but you could do this with a Dutch oven on the stovetop as well.

Cookie Dough Muddy Buddies

Puppy chow

What do you call this? Puppy chow or Muddie buddies? I grew up calling it puppy chow but for lack of confusion; let’s just go with muddy buddies. What I remember from my teenage years is that muddy buddies were THEE sleepover snack. I mean what teenager doesn’t want melted chocolate covered in powdered sugar? What I love about the modern day muddy buddies is all the new variations of it.

Lately I have seen so many creative muddy buddy recipes that I decided I needed to revisit my childhood snack and put a modern day spin on it. So, I took my second favorite sleepover snack, cookie dough, and combined it with Chex mix cereal, melted chocolate, cookie butter and powdered sugar to make Cookie Dough Muddy Buddies. I proceeded to eat half of the bag, by myself and curl up with a chick flick, I wasn’t looking to share.

Rice Krispies Snack Mix

Rice Krispies treats

Warning, this is super addicting stuff right here!  On one of my recent road trips, I saw a Rice Krispies “Crunch Mix” in a gas station. “Duh, I can totally make this,” I thought. It’s so easy!

The best thing about this Rice Krispies snack mix is that you can add whatever you want! I think this is an easy-to-do gift or snack for any party. What are your favorite snack mixes?

Start by making a batch of Rice Krispies treats. I followed the original recipe from Rice Krispies. I added some sprinkles to my batter, which ended up making them a little pink in color; I loved it!

Let the Rice Krispies cool and set; then cut them into squares. I let mine sit for about 30 minutes. I took the squares and cut them into even smaller pieces and rolled them into tiny bite-sized balls. Continue reading
