Expert Tips

  • Use a cookie scoop. When forming the brownie balls, it is easier if you have a cookie scoop. You can make the balls quickly and they will all be the same size.
  • Chill the brownie bites. Allow the dough to chill at least 30 minutes before frying.
  • Soap up excess oil. Drain excess grease by placing the fried brownies on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Make sure you use enough oil. You need 3 inches of oil in the deep frying pan to fry the brownies.
