Fry Me Up Summun' Grood

In our lovely little day trip to the Texas State Fair we spent about 20 minutes walking around and checking out our instant heart attack options.  We settled on this:

It's three giant balls of cookie dough covered in batter and then deep fried.  Then they pour chocolate syrup all over it and sprinkle it with powdered sugar.

This is how I felt getting ready to take a bite:

This is how I felt after eating one of them...

Okay, I didn't exactly want to puke.  Only a little...  Normally I'm a big cookie dough fan, but these balls of cookie dough were huge... and fried...  Really, I think they were about the size of a snitch... maybe bigger.  See below for reference:

So anyway...

Grant ate some too.  Amazingly, I think he ate as much or more than I did.  

But after a while, we decided that the batter was the best part.  The cookie dough was just a little too rich and we liked the crunch that the batter offered.

So we ended up with this:

The verdict: 
Worth it?  Absolutely.
Eat it again?  No chance.
(And that's coming from the ultimate sweet tooth)

Oh my word! That's how we felt with the deep fried Oreos - Tyler and I love Oreos - but when they are fried (an addition we thought would make them even more decadent and delicious) it proved to be not worth it. I'm glad we tried them, but I wouldn't recommend them.

What else did you guys try? I'm completely facinated now...

Yeah- it's a little overkill for sure. That's the only deep fried thing that we did-- they have a T-shirt you can get and check off the top 10 fried things at the fair. I'm amazed that people can do that without throwing up or something! We tried a smoked turkey wing which was pretty good. I have some pictures that I'll probably put up tomorrow.

Oh and Carisa can I get an invitation to your blog? You've been making such fun cute crafts lately! I love halloween decorating!

We got the fried cookie dough last year. It sounded better than it was....we weren't a huge fan, but we HAD to try it!

kelseybeth said...

Yeah for sure! Have you guys gone this year?

Thanks for the message yesterday. I think your fried cookie dough might have been better with "something" to drink, if you know what I mean. :-)
