I was excited to hear that deep fried cookie dough was on the list of goodies this year at the Canadian National Exhibit. Who doesn’t like raw cookie dough in ice cream, cakes or even just by itself? It came in three flavours: brownie, chocolate chip and red velvet drizzled in chocolate sauce and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
The brownie was pretty generic, the chocolate chip was pretty good and the red velvet was by far the best. The inside of each ball was a bit too soft for my liking, but the contrast of the crispy outer crust made up for it. However, these balls are a bit sickeningly sweet so I would recommend sharing them or having just one.
Based on observation, these balls are pretty easy to make. The staff behind the counter just rolled balls of dough, dipped the balls in some batter and then put them into the deep fryer. I’m sure these would be a cute dessert to present at a party and they’re pretty easy to make.
Up next….dessert 2 of 2 (something I’ve waited for so long to try!)
