Deep Fried Kool Aid Balls

Marla Leverett


Correction to the recipe! it is 4 tablespoons of Kool Aid Mix with sugar. I use SPLENDA so I make my own "canisters" 1 pack KOOL AID to one cup SPLENDA.

This would be a great idea for a kitchen party with friends, cutting the recipe in half and make a lot of different flavors.

2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 tsp
4 Tbsp
kool-aid (any flavor) mix*
1 Tbsp
baking powder
2 Tbsp
melted, unsalted butter
1/2 c
egg, beaten

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the melted butter, and mix until the batter is crumbly. Stir in the milk and the egg. Mix until smooth. Roll the dough into quarter-size balls and drop them carefully into the hot oil a few at a time. (or use a small cookie scoop instead!)
Cook in oil for about 3 minutes. Remove when the fried Kool-Aid batter is golden brown and crispy.
After removing from the oil place on paper towel to drain.
You can dust with a mix of same Kool-Aid and Powdered Sugar (1/8 cup Kool-Aid to 1/2 cup powdered sugar) or just Powdered Sugar.
