There are few places you can find corn dogs, cotton candy and fried pickles all in one place, which is why carnivals are the ultimate junk food destination. But if you feel like indulging in some guilty pleasures at home, it's definitely possible -- and probably easier than you thought. (Not to mention, you don't have to worry about keeping it all down, since we're guessing you don't have The Scrambler in your backyard.) Try our favorite recipes for carnival and fair foods, and enjoy some Americana right in your own home. Invite your friends over for a carnival party!
