Print Recipe


  • 6-8 brownies prepared
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces low fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 11/4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 13/4 cup soda water
  • Canola oil
  • Powdered sugar for garnish


  • In a large bowl, crush the brownies. It's easiest to just use your hands to crush up the brownies into small pieces.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix together the crushed brownies with the cream cheese and chocolate chips. Stir until well combined. It doesn't have to be perfect.
  • Using your hands, roll the brownie mixture into 12 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • When ready to fry, place 1 1/2 inches of canola oil in a dutch oven over medium high heat. You want the oil to get to 350F.
  • While the oil is heating, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, egg, and soda water until smooth.
  • Working in batches, coat each brownie bite in the batter mixture and then fry 3-4 at a time. Fry until the outer coating is crispy, turning once. I fried each bite for about 2 minutes, but times might vary.
  • After done, use a slotted spoon to remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to drain.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
  • Enjoy!
