State Fair Foods Fit for a Mug

State Fair Foods Fit for a Mug

There’s only one thing better than the State Fair—and that’s State Fair food! From award-winning preserves and blue-ribbon pies to salty foods on a stick, summertime simply isn’t the same without these scrumptious bites.

Inspired by State Fair classics, we’ve put a really fun riff on two fair favorites—turning corn dogs and churros into single-serving mug treats.

Most mug recipes are messy, microwaved until overflowing from tiny coffee cups. So we made the cooking process simpler, cleaner and more stylish than ever with the oversized CW BY CORNINGWARE™ 20 OUNCE STONEWARE MUGS.

Made with durable stoneware, the mugs are created to withstand cold and heat,so you don’t need to dirty a dozen dishes while making one little treat. Simply stir our tasty batters together, then pop them straight into the oven in these handy mugs. Their tight-fitting lids keep food fresh in the fridge until ready to serve, and can even be used in microwave to reheat leftovers.

Available in five brilliant colors with playful names that offer a wink and nod to summertime delights (Sprout, Pool, Twilight, Curry, Vermillion), these mugs are a great way to bring the fun and flavors of summer right into your own kitchen.

Grab yourself a set of these mugs and scroll below for our recipe remakes. We think you’ll find these delightful dishes are even better than a ticket to the fair.
