One of my favorite things each year is the county fair. Not because of the rides, or all the fun attractions, I go for the food. There, I said it.  I’m addicted to fair food. I may have even stopped at a random fair as my family was on a road trip just so I could get some fair food.  It’s a terrible addiction, I know.  That’s why I love this funnel cake recipe so much!! At least now I can have one of my favorite fair foods without having to wait for an actual fair to come to town!!

Be sure to pin this recipe, I know you’re going to love it!
