"easy to make and tasted great! Had them made within 15 minutes! Used candy bars and Oreos, but this batter can be used for just about anything. Twinkies?? : )"

"This is such a fun recipe. Kids got involved in choosing which candy bar they wanted. The batter is so good that it is good just fried in itself and dippped in powdered sugar. Love this for New Years"

". . .if I can figure out what I did wrong, the batter wasn't much like a batter. . .it was dough. I didn't have any 2 percent milk only whole but that should not have made a difference, i used whole milk with a different recipe i found online and it worked perfect. Maybe too much flour by accident? Idk."
