Fried Oreos and candy bars


There’s no denying that one of the best things about carnivals and county fairs is the food. Whether served on a stick, fried, stuffed, or all of the above, fair food always offers a mouth-watering assortment of delicious and decadent recipes. Now you can enjoy all the tastes and smells of carnival in the comfort of your home, thanks to the many fair trade recipes copied on TikTok. If you can’t make it to the state or county fair this year, but are craving some deep-fried goodness, here are five copycat carnival recipes that taste as good on your stovetop as they do in a food truck.

Crispy on the outside and sweet and gooey on the inside, fried treats are a staple at state fairs. To make your own, simply unwrap a candy bar and coat it in flour. Then dip it in a batter made from flour, corn flour, baking soda and milk. Finally, fry the candy bar, let it cool and enjoy!

Wash down that fried candy bar with refreshing lemonade. Start by thoroughly washing and drying a bunch of lemons. Next, grate the lemon zest into a bowl and mix it with the sugar. Then set it aside for at least two hours. Pour boiling water over the mixture and stir until the sugar dissolves, forming a syrup. Strain the syrup before combining it with fresh lemon juice. Finally, pour the lemonade into a pitcher over ice and refrigerate for a few hours before serving.

Anything goes when it comes to frying food at a state fair, especially Oreo cookies. First, roll out a sheet of puff pastry on a floured cookie sheet. Then line up a few rows of Oreos. Then use a pizza cutter to cut the dough around the cookies into squares. Wrap the dough around each Oreo and pinch the ends to seal. Finally, put them in the deep fryer at 330 degrees Fahrenheit for eight minutes. Then sprinkle generously with powdered sugar before serving.

No carnival would be complete without corn dogs. For this recipe, start by coating the uncooked hot dogs with cornstarch. Then poke each one with a popsicle stick. Then dip each hot dog in a batter made from cornmeal, flour, baking powder and garlic powder mixed with buttermilk, eggs and melted butter. Finally, fry the corn dogs over medium-high heat for three to four minutes before serving with your favorite toppings.

This caramel corn recipe is so delicious and simple. All you have to do is combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for five minutes. Then add the baking soda and vanilla extract. Pour the sauce over a bowl of freshly popped popcorn and stir well, making sure all the popcorn is coated. Finally, bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes and enjoy!
