Instructions

For the cookie dough:

  1. Allow butter to come to room temperature.
  2. Combine butter and both sugars in a medium-sized bowl. Mix with a handheld mixer until smooth. All chunks of sugar and butter should be broken up.
  3. Add flour, dry cake mix and salt. Mix just until combined. Mixture will be crumbly.
  4. Add vanilla extract and milk. Mix until dough is soft. Add chocolate chips and sprinkles last.
  5. Roll dough into balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons for each. Set aside.

To assemble and fry

  1. Preheat oil to 365°. Use caution when deep-frying. Oil is extremely hot.
  2. Use a food processor to crush Corn Flakes into small pieces. Set aside in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, beat egg with a fork. Add water.
  4. Add 1 cup of dry pancake mix and powdered sugar and whisk together until smooth.
  5. In a third bowl, place the remaining dry pancake mix.
  6. To assembly the deep-fried cookie dough bites, first roll dough in dry pancake mix, then dip into wet batter and lastly, roll in Corn Flake crumbs.
  7. Place dough ball in oil and fry for one minute and 30 seconds.
  8. Remove from deep fryer and tap off excess oil and place on a paper towel to dry the dough ball and absorb remaining oil. Allow to cool for several minutes before eating.
  9. Sprinkle with powered sugar or drizzle with chocolate syrup.
