If doing this is wrong, I don't want to be right.
First, let me explain. There is an amazing restaurant in Houston called Beavers. If you are anywhere within 100 miles of Houston, you should make it a point to eat there. And don't leave until you have a dessert called Beaver Balls. It is deep fried brownie balls with peanut butter powdered sugar, ice cream and vanilla sauce.
I had to give you some context so you didn't think I sit around and dream up ways to make the richest dessert I've ever made even richer. When I made these over the top fudge brownies, I had just been to Beavers and got the crazy idea to replicate the dessert. So I balled a few of these up and froze them.
I've been on spring break for the last week and thought there has never been a better time to try and fry these up. Oh, they were so good... so good. If you've made these brownies, you know they are so rich so you might as well freeze a couple for a rainy day and try this out. Yum.
I promise to get back to some practical, quick and healthy recipes soon!
From my little kitchen to yours... Enjoy.
Deep Fried Brownie Bites
If you do not have a fry thermometer, you can heat the oil over medium high heat. Toss a little bit of flour in the oil and if it simmers quickly without burning, your oil is ready.
Over the top fudge brownies, frozen, rolled into golf ball size balls (click here for recipe)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg
1/2 cup seltzer water or club soda
Vegetable oil, for frying
Step by Step
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Add the egg and half the seltzer and whisk well to combine. Add more seltzer as needed until the batter is thick and the consistency of heavy cream. Add just enough vegetable oil in a deep, heavy pot to cover the brownie balls (about 3 inches deep). Heat oil to 350 degrees F (see recipe note). Dip the chilled dough balls in the batter and carefully place them in the hot oil. Turn balls a few times until are sides are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.
