Fried Hershey Bar Bites!

Posted by on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013


Ever had a fried Hershey Bar?  They are incredible!  We made these on our last camping trip of this season.  How can one go wrong with fried batter and chocolate?  I used 2 of the large 4.4 oz size bars (I regular, one Special Dark) and scored each along the retangular lines printed on the bar.  There are no words I can think of to describe these delectable chocolate treats.  Appreciation and comprehension will only come by tasting these for yourself.

  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 large 4.4 oz Hershey Bars cut along score lines (the family preferred Heshey’s Special Dark)
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting


In a deep medium skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil over medium-high heat until temperature reaches 375 degrees. (Use a deep-fat thermometer).

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and add the milk, vanilla, and eggs; whisk until smooth.

When oil reaches 375 degrees, the pieces of scored Hershey bar can be dipped in batter. Using a small set of tongs or a fork, carefully lift the battered piece of chocolate out of the mixture, letting excess drip off chocolate.  Place dipped pieces of chocolate into hot grease, being careful not to splatter grease.  Fry 6-8 pieces at a time in skillet. Use tongs or fork to flip battered chocolate if necessary.  Fry pieces until golden brown, approximately 4-5 minutes.  Remove fried Hershey bites from hot oil and drain on layers of paper towels.  Sprinkle fried Hershey bites with powdered sugar.  Serve while bites are still warm and have lots of milk handy!

    Yay! I i think Richard uninstalled the plug in that was supposed to make the blog look better on an Ipad. Guess there must be a glitch with that. Thanks for your feedback.
