Deep Fried Cookie Dough Bites

Indulge in cookie dough that's batter dipped, then deep fried to golden perfection.

Ingredients

1
package Betty Crocker™ cookie mix (any flavor) (17.5 ounces)
Any ingredients called for on cookie mix package
Sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, cinnamon imperials or other small candies (optional)
1/2
to 1 cup Original Bisquick™ pancake and baking mix
1/4
to 1 cup milk
1
quart vegetable oil, for frying
Powdered sugar, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Prepare the cookie mix according to the package, stirring ingredients together until a dough forms. If you'd like, mix 2 tablespoons of sprinkles or mini chocolate chips or cinnamon imperials into the cookie dough at this point.
  • 2 Line a baking tray with wax or parchment paper. Scoop a small bit of the cookie dough (less than a tablespoon) and roll it into a ball between your palms. The ball should be no bigger than one inch across. Refrigerate the tray of dough balls for at least an hour (up to overnight).
  • 3 To prepare your frying batter, mix 1/2 cup Bisquick with 1/4 cup milk. Gradually add up to 1/4 cup more milk, stirring, until the batter is a nice dipping consistency - runny, but not too thin. If you run out of batter while frying the dough balls, prepare a second mixture.
  • 4 Line a baking tray with wax or parchment paper and place a wire baking rack on the tray. Set aside. Pour about 1 quart of vegetable oil into a saucepan so the oil is two inches deep. Insert a candy or deep-fry thermometer into the oil and heat the oil until it reaches between 325-350ºF. Keep the oil at this temperature while frying.
  • 5 Dip a dough ball into the batter and coat completely. Hold the ball on a fork so the excess batter drips off, then gently lower the ball into the hot oil. Work with only 3 dough balls at a time. Let the dough balls bubble and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, until the ball is a deep golden brown. The longer the balls remain in the oil, the more the dough will cook, so don't remove the balls too early. Remove the balls with a slotted spoon and place on the wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
  • 6 Sprinkle the fried cookie balls with powdered sugar, if you like. Best served warm.

Step By Step  

Yummy cookie dough is dipped in batter, then fried to golden brown. Yes, we're serious.

As prepared by The Decorated Cookie,

Your cookie plate just died and went to heaven.

Deep fried cookie dough is more luxurious than sitting in a Bentley enveloped in pearls and surrounded by stacks of gold. (I’m guessing based on tasting these deep fried cookie bites, not on my experience with all that glitzy stuff.)

And ‘tis the season for luxury. Or at least gluttony! We found these little gems, inspired by Sugarhero!, and just had to give them a holiday try.

Even though these look like they take a lot of know-how to make, using cookie mix and pancake mix simplifies everything dramatically.

 

Deep Fried Cookie Dough Bites

First, stir up any flavor of Betty Crocker cookie mix you want. Then add whatever you like – sprinkles, small candies, nuts, dried fruit, or mini chocolate chips. As state fairs have taught us, you can deep fry anything!

So here's a batch of chocolate chip cookies with mini chocolate chips. 

To make the balls, just roll dough into a ball in your palms. The ball should be no more than an inch across. Any bigger and the inside won’t cook as well and may be too mushy.

Sugar cookie mix with rainbow sprinkles!

Here's snickerdoodle dough with a few cinnamon imperials placed in the middle. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar that came with the package after you put the cinnamon chips inside. I did lose a one or two of the imperials when frying, I should warn you. They just popped right out, much to my surprise!

I rolled the peanut butter dough balls around small pieces of a chocolate bar.

After you prepare the cookie dough balls, place them on a baking tray lined with wax or parchment paper and refrigerate for at least one hour. I ended up getting busy and mine stayed in the fridge overnight, which worked well too.

To prepare your frying batter, mix Bisquick and milk. Gradually add more of milk, stirring until the batter is of a nice dipping consistency – runny but not too thin.

Line a baking tray with wax or parchment paper and place a wire baking rack on the tray, then set aside.

Pour vegetable oil into a sauce pan so it’s two inches deep, about one quart. Insert a candy or deep frying thermometer into the oil and heat the oil until it reaches between 325-350ºF. Keep the oil at this temperature while frying.

Dip a dough ball into the batter and coat completely. Hold the ball on a fork so the excess batter drips off. Gently drop the ball into the hot oil. Work with only three dough balls at a time. Let the dough balls boil and fry for several minutes. The longer they are in the oil, the longer they cook so they won't be mushy inside. Remove the balls with a slotted spoon and place on the wire rack.

If you like, sprinkle the fried cookie balls with powdered sugar. Then enjoy! I mean, really, really enjoy.
