i don't have much in the way of pictures when it comes to food, so i'll just share a simple dessert that my friends and i always end up making when we're hanging out at my place. (it pays to own a deep fryer!)

it's probably more common in the US than it is here, which is why we like making it so much. we deep fry everything! we tried snickers bars, kit kat, and i think we once tried chips ahoy cookies. but the staple (and the favorite) is oreos. mmmmm, deep fried oreos. mmmmm.

it's ridiculously easy; it doesn't even need a real recipe! just buy a pack of instant pancake mix (the kind that uses one egg), chocolate syrup, and if you're feeling extra festive, get a canned peaches or bananas or any other fruit that you like.

make sure to put the oreos (or snickers bars, or whatever) in the freezer for at least an hour before deep frying. get the deep fryer going, and prepare the pancake mix. when the oil is nice and hot, take the oreos out of the freezer, coat them in pancake batter, and drop them one by one into the deep fryer. you'll know they're done when they slightly start to rise to the top and when the color of the batter turns to , well, the color of pancakes.

when it's done, arrange it on a plate, dust it with confectioner's sugar if you have it on hand, and put the chocolate syrup in a small bowl. we like to eat it with canned peaches on the side; when i make it by myself, i prefer freshly sliced granny smith apples.

ta-daaaah! a delicious, inexpensive dessert you can make in 10 minutes, tops.

My husband has ordered fried twinkies and fried snickers at the ball park before. Fried Oreos sound wonderful!
