Step right up into a fair time classic! This delightful treat combines the flavors of a warm carnival night with the nostalgic caramel sweetness of CRACKER JACK®

How to make it

  • 1

    Preheat fryer to 350°F. In a bowl, combine pancake mix, water and 1 cup of CRACKER JACK® "flour." The batter should be thick, like a waffle batter. Place in a squeeze bottle.

  • 2

    In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 cup CRACKER JACK® "flour." Set aside.

  • 3

    Fry the funnel cakes by squeezing the batter into the oil in circular motions, to create the funnel cake shape. Allow to fry until golden brown. Remove from fryer, and allow excess oil to drain.

  • 4

    Sprinkle the reserved CRACKER JACK® and powdered sugar mixture on top with a few whole pieces of CRACKER JACK®.

Tips & Tricks

  • In order to check if the oil is hot enough to fry with, take a pea sized amount of batter and drop it in first. If it sizzles it's ready to go!
