Make sure your oil temp is ready before you begin frying. I made the mistake of not checking before my first test, and the fried peanut butter and jelly, because an oil-logged peanut butter and jelly

I’d shoot for a temperature for 350-400F for your oil. cooking oil, or even something like peanut oil will do perfectly for this.

We’re not frying these long. If your oil is up to temp, it’s going to take a 1-2 minutes MAX.

I didn’t use enough oil to fully coat the PB&J, so I needed to flip half way.

But if you have one of those counter top deep fryers – I bet you’ll be done in 60 seconds.
