Deep Fried Butter Served Up In Scotland



After the success of the deep fried Mars Bar, chefs in Scotland have devised the ultimate high-calorie snack — deep fried butter balls. The sticky dessert, called Braveheart Butter Bombs — has been described as a “coronary on a plate.” Chef Simon Robertson, the inventor of the dish, says that while it’s not exactly health food, you should be okay if you’re not having it every day. The dessert is made by freezing balls of butter before dipping them in batter soaked with Irn Bru — a Scottish carbonated soft drink. They are then submerged in hot oil until browned. Considering Scotland's favorite pizza is Pizza Crunch — frozen pizza folded in half, dipped in batter, and deep fried — it’s obvious that deep-fried culture there is no joke.
