Deep Fried Candy Bars

Dust them with unsweetened baking cocoa for a more intense chocolate flavor.

Use wide craft sticks for maximum strength.


  • 1 (16.3 ounce) can Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated original or buttermilk biscuits
  • 8 assorted candy bars
  • Canola oil for frying
  • 8 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with round ends)
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Roll out each with rolling pin or press with hands until large enough to wrap around candy bar.
  2. Place 1 candy bar in center of each biscuit. Wrap dough around each to completely cover candy bar; pinch to seal well.
  3. In 10 to 12 inch skillet, heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  4. Fry each wrapped candy bar until golden brown on all sides. Remove from oil to cooling rack; cool.
  5. Insert 1 craft stick halfway into each.
  6. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
