Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie Fritters:  Is it possible that we have stumbled across the four most tantalizing words in the English language?  Well, when you put those four magical words together, and then actually make what they describe..using a brownie from the greatest brownie maker in the world, Fairytale Brownies, you will feel as though you have achieved sweet-treat culinary greatness…right in your own kitchen.

Oh, and a drizzle of homemade butterscotch sauce only solidifies the pure amazingness of this delectable treat.

When we recently discovered Fairytale Brownies, right after we took our fist bite…we immediately said (to the half-eaten brownie): “Where have you been all of our lives?!” Folks, there is not a brownie on the planet like a Fairytale Brownie.

David and Eileen are co-founders of the company and they have been producing these luxuriously decadent brownies for 25 years. Their talented team bakes, packages and delivers (to your doorstep) a variety of brownie flavors ranging from original, to cream cheese, caramel, raspberry, toffee crunch, mint chocolate, and so much more. They even have a couple of sugar-free brownies that you would never know were sugar-free.

When given the opportunity to partner with them and develop a recipe using their brand new brownie, Cinnamon Cocoa, we could hardly contain our excitement.

It didn’t take much testing to land upon what we believe is the best dessert to ever come out of the H2FaL Test Kitchen: Deep-Fried Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie Fritters with Homemade Butterscotch Sauce. Just let that sink in for a moment.

These epic brownies are made only with the best ingredients in the world including imported Belgium chocolate, farm-fresh eggs, real creamy butter, and top-notch fluffy cake flour. Meticulously prepared by expert bakers and then individually wrapped and sealed for absolute freshness, delivered to your door.

We knew elevating these perfect brownies in a unique and delicious recipe would be a tall order. But we were up to the tantalizing task.

We started with Fairytales Brownies’ newest creation, Cinnamon Cocoa Brownies, and then gave them a simple rough chop. We love these brownies so much: They are so moist and include top-of-the-line cinnamon, rich chocolate and a pecan crumble that work beautifully together in a heavenly manner. Divine.

We tested different shapes and sizes for the fritters, and found that forming the roughly chopped brownies in a ball about the size of a golf ball worked the best.

The brownies are so moist that they stay in tact with no problem.

We found that 6 large brownies (3″x3″) form 8 perfectly-sized fritters.

Next, we made a simple sweet (but not too sweet) batter that was nice and thick and would form the perfectly delicious casing for the Cinnamon Cocoa Chocolate Fritters.

We found that simply dipping the brownie balls into the batter with your fingers was easiest. You could also use a couple of forks, or even toothpicks inserted into the brownie for navigating the fritter around the batter, but again…a clean set of fingers worked best for us.

Meanwhile, heat your oil to around 350°F.

Very carefully drop the coated brownie balls into the hot oil, and let them cook for about 2 minutes, until nicely browned all over.

Use metal tongs, or forks, to rotate the brownie fritters in the oil.

It’s not uncommon for some of the batter to make little fried ‘tentacles’ dangling from the fritters. That’s no problem! We simply clip them off with scissors after they come out of the oil. Also, if the batter doesn’t 100% cover the fritter while frying, that’s no problem either. Once covered in powdered sugar and drizzled with butterscotch sauce, no one will even notice.

Now, you are almost ready to serve the best and most delicious sweet treat you’ll ever serve!

Take a good scoop of confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar) mixed with some ground cinnamon and sprinkle over the chocolate fritters for a wonderful sweet flavor boost.

These brownie fritters are so delicious and beautiful, too!

We just can’t say enough about the quality of the brownies from Fairytale Brownies. The taste and texture is truly unmatched, and we can say without hesitation they are the best brownies we have ever eaten in our lives.

They also make incredible gifts. We love that you can even supply them a logo that they will print beautifully onto the packaging that you are having delivered. Perfect gifts for friends and family or for business-related gifts.

Try these brownies…we promise…you’ll taste the difference and they will become the only brownie you will ever want to consume.

And while you’re at it…make these amazing Deep-Fried Cinnamon Cocoa Brownie Fritters. They are to die for.

  • Canola, or vegetable oil for frying
  • 6 large Cinnamon Cocoa Brownies
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a medium, sturdy pan, heat the oil to 350°F, using a candy thermometer. (You can also test with a small pinch of bread, or batter...if it sizzles and browns within a minute or so, it's ready).  
  • Using a large knife, roughly chop the brownies and form into 8 balls.  Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and sugar.
  • Add the vanilla, eggs, and milk to the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.  The batter will be fairly thick.
  • Add the brownie balls to the batter and move around (fingers work well) until coated.
  • 2 to 3 at a time, carefully add the coated brownie balls to the hot oil.  Use a fork to rotate the balls in the oil so they brown evenly all over.  Cook for about 2 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove with metal spatula or spider and place on paper towel-lined plate.  Repeat with remaining brownie balls.
  • Mix together the confectioner's sugar and cinnamon and place in a small sieve and gently sprinkle over the fritters.
  • Cut fritters down the middle and drizzle with homemade butterscotch sauce.


  • Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Add the brown sugar and stir until completely dissolved.  Add the cream and bring to a gentle boil. 
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.  The sauce should simmer, but not boil vigorously.  If you over-boil, the sauce will become too thick.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the salt and vanilla.  Pour into heat-proof container and let cool.  (The sauce will thicken as it cools).

    • Hi Donna! We’ve not done these in the air fryer. My thought is they may be somewhat problematic since it’s a wet batter. I’ll need to think through this a bit to figure out a nice dry coating that will crisp up nicely in the the air fryer.

    • Hi Sheila! So very sorry for the delayed response. Absolutely! You can use any brownie you want. We would just recommend going with a brownie that is moist and not dry. This will allow you to mold the brownie into a bite-size portion that will be easier to fry. Let us know how it turns out!! All the best, Kris & Wesley

    What a fun way to serve a brownie for dessert! That butterscotch sauce looks so glossy and I just want to reach in and grab a fritter! These would be so great for a game day party, can you imagine how fast they’d disappear?

    I am speechless — and that is an unusual occurrence! I bet those brownie fritters are amazing. I’m surprised the county fairs haven’t discovered these by now. The fairs always come up with the most amazing treats but instead the two of you did. I don’t think I could keep something that good around the house.

    Well aren’t you clever, and you certainly have a way with words – I am salivating over here looking at these brownies!! I am loving this twist on a regular (although amazingly delicious sounding) brownie…and that butterscotch sauce – YUM!!

  • 5 stars
    These look so devinely decadent. You had me at fried brownie. Those brownies look absolutely amazing, but coating them in batter and drizzling with butterscotch is making my mouth drool. It looks simple too since the brownie is already made. Thanks for this recipe!

    oh my goodness – you had my heart with that first photo! The drizzle on the brownie? YES PLEASE. I’m definitely going to have to eat more than one of these bad boys. Lemme at them!

    Sweet merciful cocoa beans. I mean brownies are always good (imho), but you took a killer brownie, battered it, and fried it? It’s a good thing (for my waistline) that you can’t download food. Ridiculous. Seriously though, love that you went simple on that dough layer – I find things like this are usually over-battered and it kind of spoils the fun for me. And that dusting of powdered sugar is just a great little finish that lightens the taste so nicely!

    You are bad, EVIL men. I’ve been on a no-carb, no-fun diet for the past 1 1/2 months. I have successfully avoided every manner of cookie, cake, pie, tart and ice cream. So you just had to up-your-game, didn’t you. Specifically what do you have against my skinny jeans? I surrender. Pass the plate.

    Oh my lord. You deep fried a brownie. I’m literally sitting here drooling over my keyboard. These look so perfect– and those brownies are so YUM looking! I’m going to be thinking about these all day wow. I need!

  • 5 stars
    Wow. This is like a brownie on steroids. Who would have though to doctor up a delicious brownie this way to create something even more tasty? I’m bookmarking this to make the next time I’m looking for something decadent. YUM.

    I bet you cannot eat just one!! Or two!! These sound so delicious. What a fun treat to make the kids for an afterschool snack. I know they will fight over the last one for sure.

  • 5 stars
    This is simply a brilliant use for brownies…. taking it to a gourmet level. I love how it looks crazy impressive but there is nothing that intimidates me in giving this a try. Im thinking our next dinner party will be serving these wonderful fritters!

    • Thank you, Michele! I have to say these are pretty amazing. One of the most delicious treats to come out of our H2FaL kitchen. Let us know if you give them a go! Thank you!! Kris & Wesley
