Charlie Boghosian has invented Fried Kool-Aid balls. He debuted these little wonders at the San Diego County Fair. Doing a search for these I mainly found people saying how disgusting they think these will taste. I beg to differ. This looks completely heavenly to me. But I am a fatty and if you deep fry it I will eat it. I have had shark, alligator, snake, frog legs and pickles. Not all in one sitting of course.
So I offer up a recipe for these balls of delight and if you make them you must bring me one…or 10. Whatever.
Fried Kool-Aid Recipe
– Vegetable oil (for frying)
– 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup Kool-Aid (We like )
– 3 eggs
– 1/4 of sugar (Want it sweeter? Add more)
– 1/2 tsp. of salt
– 2 tsp. baking powder
– 2 cups milk
– 3 2/3 cups of flour
Make the batter by beating the eggs and sugar together. Gradually add the milk and dry ingredients. Cook in hot vegetable oil until golden brown (a few minutes, depending on heat). Cool in tray for a few minutes, then dig in.
