At first, this sounds very strange, but it is actually quite good. So good, people are making and selling these at fairs all around the United States! The recipe for fried Kool-Aid is pretty hard to come by. Here is our version, which tastes great!
2 Cups of Milk
1/4 Cup of Sugar
3 2/3 Cups of Flour
1/2 Teaspoons of Salt
1/4 Cup of Cherry Kool-Aid
2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
Vegetable Oil For Frying
Making the batter:
Beat the eggs and the sugar together in a mixing bowl. Slowly add the milk while beating slowly. Add all of the dry ingredients, and beat until the mixture is slow and creamy. The batter should be a bright pink color. Add more Kool-Aid as desired.
Cook in hot vegetable oil for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the hot oil when the fried Kool-Aid batter is golden brown and is crispy.
If desired, the deep fried Kool-Aid can be rolled in a mixture of powdered sugar and cherry Kool-Aid after it is fried. Use about 1/4 cup of Kool-Aid to 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.
Allow the deep fried Kool-Aid to cool a bit before eating. They will burn you badly if eaten too soon. Fried Kool-Aid tastes best with a fresh glass of Kool-Aid!
