Recipe from On a Stick! by Matt Armendariz/Quirk Books, 2011.


  • 4 pop sticks
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 candy bars, such as Mars Bars, Snickers, and Milky Ways
  • Powdered sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • powdered sugar


  • Preheat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pierce each candy bar with a pop stick, place on the prepared baking sheet, and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • Whisk all batter ingredients until little to no lumps remain. One at a time, dip chilled candy bars in batter and coat well.
  • Once oil reaches 390°F, carefully place candy bars in oil one at a time and fry about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired, and serve hot.
