deep fried mini mars bars

mini Mars bars, chilled
1 cup flour
¼ cup plus 2 tbs cornstarch
¼ cup fine cornmeal
pinch baking soda
1 1/3 cup milk
oil for deep frying

Note: if fine cornmeal is unavailable, grind regular cornmeal in a clean blade-style coffee maker.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, cornmeal and baking soda. Add milk and whisk. Add more milk, if necessary, so that the mixture is the consistency of crepe batter.

Heat oil to 370F. Coat bars in batter and carefully place in hot oil. Fry until golden. May be served with ice cream or something tart to offset the richness of the dish. Batter makes as few or as many minis as you want and can easily be halved.
