Looking for deep fried desserts in the Boston area...

Does anyone know where I can find deep fried Oreos or Snickers bars in the Boston area? I recently tried both on the Jersey Shore this past weekend and have been craving them ever since!

    Tavern in the Square, Central Square location has Snickers.

    I'd be interested in trying deep fried Oreos if anyone knows of a local place.

      Not quite local, but when the Big E starts back up in a month or so (in Springfield), there's been a vendor who has had them in the past. I MAY have also seen them at the Topsfield Fair. I tried them once, wasn't that impressed (the filling melts into thecokies , so what you've got is tempura-coated soggy chocolate cookies.)

        Tommy Doyle's in Kendall Sq lists a deep fried cheesecake. Never tried it (my arteries harden just by reading that), but if you do, please report. :)

          You didn't by chance watch King of the Hill on Sunday night, did you?

            You should try making them at home! They're super easy, I just use Bisquick Complete and add a little less water than I would for pancakes. Just dip the Oreos into the batter and drop them in a pan with a few inches of oil, flip them until both sides are golden and voila fried oreos! =]

            I love the way that the filling melts into the cookies! The cookies turn into something like gooey chocolate cakes which contrasts the crispy exterior.
