Learn how to deep-fry Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in this Howcast video.


This is a working kitchen. We've got some fish and chips for the customers working out there. Again, there's a very different way of putting these Reese's into the fryer. You've got to put the batter on them first, so that the flour adheres to them, and so the batter adheres to them. And it's a real art form.

It's one of those things that if you didn't grow up with, you don't like it. I can't abide the stuff. I like peanuts, don't like peanut butter. But I do like Marmite, and unfortunately, they didn't want to do a Marmite sandwich.

You spin these babies in. These take a couple of minutes. Brilliant, so the Reese's are now done. I'm going to pull them out, drain them and I'm going to put them on this plate. There's my glove.

It looks bloody good, and if you like peanuts, this will put you into heaven.
