Funfetti Fried Candy Corn

Funfetti Fried Candy CornPIN IT!Everyone loves a good funnel cake. The fried batter and sweet sugary goodness just melts in your mouth. Candy corn for me can be a hit or miss, however, combining these two sweet treats together is a fall dessert come true. This fun spin on funnel cake is a perfect addition for any fall gathering and sure to be a hit.

You can grab all of your supplies at any grocery store since its all common baking ingredients. Since you don’t need a lot of frosted flakes, grabbing an individual container instead of a regular size box will work just fine.

In a large bowl, add the pancake mix, egg, and buttermilk. Stir well so that you have a thick batter like mixture. Make sure you break down all of the pancake mix so no one gets a mouth full of powder when they take a bite.

Once your mixture is good to go, add the chopped candy corn and crush cereal to the mix. Stir well to incorporate everything together. I wouldn’t chop the candy corn too small or you won’t be able to taste it distinctly. Your mix should look something like the photo below.

Add 1.5 inches of oil to a frying pan and heat over MEDIUM heat for 5 minutes (or use a candy thermometer to reach 350°). Drop the candy corn dough by the tablespoon into the hot oil. Fry on both sides for 1 minute each. You have to be pretty on top of the frying. If it goes too long it will be too crunchy and not taste great. If you don’t cook long enough it will be gooey.

Once cooked, place each piece on a paper towel for 1-2 minutes to soak up any excess oil. Do not wait any longer than 2 minutes to transfer or the fried candy corn dough will begin to stick to the paper towel. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and transfer to a wire rack to completely cool. Enjoy!
