But when she was bad she was horrid….

If you are a fan of LOST, let me just say that contrary to popular belief, I am not the black smoke. I am not spreading evil throughout the world. I am just spreading it to your thighs. :P

So many a person wrote that they wanted to know when would I be making a Cadbury Caramel Egg cupcake like I did with the Crème Egg. And though it was tempting, I just didn’t want to make the same kind of thing again.

One of my fellow Seattle area food bloggers, Lara of Cook and Eat, wrote a doughnut book. She was all happy that it was pre-listed on Amazon.com (as she should be) and it got me thinking about deep fried things. The British love to deep fry stuff. One of my favorite treats at the pub are things called Scotch Eggs. They are hard boiled eggs, wrapped in sausage meat, breaded and then deep fried. They may sound odd but boy are they good. And after a few pints, they are really good.

These deep fried Caramel Eggs are crossbreed between the idea of the doughnut and the Scotch Egg. There isn’t much too these. Just some funnel cake batter that I make with brown sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup instead of granulated sugar and well, some frozen Caramel Eggs. They held up quite nicely. Even the ones that didn’t get fully coated in the batter. I also experimented with the milk chocolate covered Peeps. Which sadly did not turn out as well.

These are about as good as you would expect. I mean, doughnut batter wrapped around oozy milk chocolate and caramel. Okay, on second thought, maybe I am the black smoke. Hmmm. Now that would be a LOST plot twist. ;)

It’s Not Swimsuit Season Yet Deep Fried Cadbury Caramel Eggs
6-8 Cadbury Caramel Eggs (frozen)

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
2 TBSP dark brown sugar
1 TBSP Lyle’s Golden Syrup
1 ¼  cup flour
¼  tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
In a deep skillet, heat about four cups of oil over medium-high heat until hot.

Test the temperature by dropping a pinch of flour into the hot oil. If it sizzles right away without smoking, it’s perfect.

Beat egg and milk. Mix all other ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly add to the egg mixture, beating until smooth.

Dip frozen Caramel Eggs into batter.

Fry for about 2-3 minutes, remove from the oil when golden brown and crispy and place on paper towel to get excess oil.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.

P.S. No one from Cadbury has paid me to promote their product. Just kind of obsessed. But if they want to send me free chocolate, feel free Cadbury, feel free.

  12. Oh, man! You are pure evil! ;)

  13. OMG!!!! I have been stalking your blog for a little while (great considering I am supposed to be following Weight Watchers!!) I am definitely going to try these egg donuts – Cadbury features heavily at Easter here in Australia. Thanks for the inspiration (as well as the key lime cupcakes, I just look at those and drool!)

  14. Oh my…these look amazing. Zillions of calories. As if Cadbury eggs needed to get better!

  21. Woah! Intense!! This looks too good for words.

  22. I think you’ve given birth to something here (ok, bad pun). These should be sold at every country fairground in the world! They should be called Evil Stinkbombs so that I won’t want to buy them.

  23. Shoshanna says:

    Yum! I live 2.5 hours away from you. Do you deliver? :P

  24. I’m frightened…. but intrigued and awed at the same time.

  25. hehe love the idea! you can never go wrong with something deep fried that involves melted chocolate. yum! :D

  26. Honestly, I am so bored with LOST right now but I feel obligated to watch it till the end because I’ve invested in the previous seasons. At this point I would really welcome your twist :)

  31. There is no question in my mind that these are over the top delicious. I would eat one, if not two! ;)

  32. LOL “it’s not swimsuit season yet”. Those look incredible. Like-drive-to-the-store-and-buy-the-ingredients-right-this-second incredible!

  33. Between these and the cupcakes Cadbury should at least consider sending you a nice Easter basket full of eggs! Everything looks so yummy!

  34. I don’t, for one minute, beleive your ever BAD. If eating good food, even when you should not, makes you bad I am standing right beside you.

  35. oh you shouldn’t have. but since you did, so will i!

    what kind of oil did you use? thanks!

  36. Ginger L. says:

    I must say, you are my new hero! I like to fry just about anything, mac and cheese, brownies (ball up brownies around 60%cacao dark chocolate chunks… Yumm!) But these eggs look fantastic. Congrats for taking fried desserts to a new fabulous level!

  37. OMG! Yum!!!!

  38. Seriously. Your pictures alone make me gain 5 pounds. These look amazing!

  42. I am a dietitian, and I want one NOW! Those look out of this worrrrld!!!

  43. It looks sooo devilishly good! My sister would love this!

  44. Ha, now that is down right devilish! I think it might be a good thing for my health that these aren’t vegan…

  45. This erases any doubt – you are evil. But in a good way. ;-) I love that you have so much fun playing in the kitchen.

  46. Correct me if I’m wrong, but weren’t fried Cadbury eggs the reason for Jesus’s rising? :D

  47. I can’t. I just can’t!!! You can’t make me. You can’t tempt me!

    well…maybe just one.

  48. That looks orgasmic.
