Dixie Fry Clone

I, too, love the original recipe "Dixie Fry"....but for those who can't find 
it in their stores...try this:

1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

Put in plastic bag and shake it until totally blended...then put your chicken 
pieces in the bag and shake, as you would Dixie's pretty close to the 
real thing...


Thanks, Bruce!

Hello Pauline,

Can't find one with hazelnuts, but below is a soft peanut brittle recipe.


Soft Peanut Brittle Recipe

2 cups Creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cup Light corn syrup
1/4 cup Water, PLUS
2 teaspoons Water; divided
2 tablespoons Butter
2 cups Peanuts; raw or roasted
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla

In a double boiler over hot water, place peanut butter to heat while 
preparing syrup. In a large saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and 
1/4 cups water. Cook over high heat to 275 deg. on candy therm. Lower 
heat to med, add butter, stirring until melted. Add peanuts, cook 
stirring for about 5 minutes until candy starts turning brown and reaches 
300 deg. on therm. 

Remove from heat, stir in baking soda that has been dissolved in the 
2 tsps water. Add vanilla. Working quickly, fold in warm peanut butter, 
stirring gently. At once, pour candy mixture onto well greased marble 
slab or cookie sheet. Quickly spread as thin as possible. The secret 
of the candy is quick cooling. When cold, break into serving size

User Comments & Tips Let the jamun juice settle well before pouring into glasses to obtain a clear juice.
