Pancake mix recipes: Deep fried goodness

This tutorial starts with the pancake mix recipe posted earlier this year 
but any pancake mix can be used. 

You will need to prepare the mix as directed to make pancakes. 
In the case of the home made pancake mix you will need:
1 cup of mix
1 egg
1 cup milk
 And then mix it together to create the batter

Now the fun part, picking the ingredients

You can deep fry almost anything. Yes it's true. I use this technique to deep fry sweet things. 
 things you might want to fry are:
Oreo cookies
Chocolate bars
Fig Newton
Reese's peanut butter cups
Cheese cake
Chocolate chip cookies
Oatmeal cookies

Pictured on the right are some things I chose to fry up. There is an Oreo type cookie that I made from scratch, some chocolate bars, fig newton style fruit bars and some peanut butter cups.
Cut everything to bite size pieces. 

Then coat it in the batter and place in deep frying oil on a high heat.
The pieces will float so you will have to turn them over once they are browned on one side.

When you take them out of the oil after several minutes of cooking the snacks need to be placed on a plate with a paper towel on it to drain the oil off. 
Let it cool for a little bit. You want it to still be hot in the middle but not boiling. It is easy to burn yourself on hot melted chocolate so be careful, especially when serving this to children!

It is also really easy to over eat these and feel fat. So delicious!
