I miss the beach. We went only twice this whole summer and now with the mild weather, I am already well into autumn-mode and I can’t go to the beach when I am thinking about Halloween. It’s just not possible. So, in honor of all that is good about the beach and the boardwalk, I am bringing you funnel cake. Not just any funnel cake, mind you. This funnel cake is topped with a lemony white chocolate and powdered sugar and it is So. Freaking. Good.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I go to the beach, I HAVE to go on the boardwalk and I HAVE to get funnel cake. It is mandatory. That sweet fried bread topped with powdered sugar is the definition of summer for me. There is something about the salt water air and the sound of seagulls that evokes this uncontrollable craving.
Funnel cake is super easy and inexpensive to make, plus it uses ingredients you already have on-hand. Aaaaaaaaand it takes about 20 minutes to complete the whole thing and have this glorious treat on the table. It’s a win-win-win. Win!
And then I decided I needed to take it another step and add lemony ( <– I love that word!) white chocolate because it’s a flavor combinations I’ve been dreaming about for ages and I just could not hold it in anymore. And the results were a-maz-ing! Happy, happy belly.
When the white chocolate starts to solidify, you can start eating this with a fork and knife (we were using hands before), or you can be like me and shuffle the funnel cake to the edge of your plate and just bite down with vigor and a smile on your face. Don’t worry, we don’t judge around these parts.
