Does the L.A. County Fair Need These Deep Fried Samoas?
That's a silly question to ask, isn't it? Of course we need more deep fried goodness -- especially if it has anything to do with Girl Scout cookies.
"Christi Erpillo, a deep-fried food veteran at the fair and a former Girl Scout, decided to take up the challenge. The Thin Mint wouldn't survive the fryer, but the Samoa could," says HuffPo.
Only problem is, Erpillo's cookies, which have been encased in won ton wrappers in order to ensure a melt-free fry, will only going to be at the Texas State Fair -- or until Chicken Charlie figures out a way to bring them to SoCal's festivities. In the meantime, we'll just have to stick with Samoa treats close to home, like Bake You Happy's Samoa cupcake (pictured below), a chocolate cake base topped with browned buttercream, toasted coconut and a drizzle of caramel.
