I’ve only had deep fried Oreos once before I made this blog post and they’re my new favorite sweet treat. I first made earlier this year at work, when we had a theme night of carnival foods aka where everything was fried. Except at that point, they ended up making like 50 some packs of Oreos, I was having dreams of Oreos by the end of the night.
Have you ever been to a carnival and gotten over priced deep fried Oreos? Yea, that and funnel cake is my favorite sweet snacks to munch on down.
I thought it would be a fun recipe to try with the kids, we did it basic the first time around, next time we’re gonna change up the batter as well.
Mix the pancake batter according to the back of the package.
Preheat your oil to at least 250 degrees (or use an actual fryer, I just used a pot on the stove).
TIP: Drop a bit of the batter into the hot oil to see if it drops. Then floats and bubble to the top, that’s when you know it’s ready.
Dip each Oreo in the batter and then into the oil. Flip each Oreo over so they’re golden on both sides.
It takes about 1 minute tops on both sides. I batched cooked these in groups of 5-7 depending on size of pot or fryer.
Strain on a tray with paper towels, then dust with powdered sugar while they’re still hot.
Let cool a minute or two before eating. I didn’t really wait and regretted after I bite into the deep fried oreos, haha.
These are by far not healthy, but it’s a fun and easy snack for a get together with friends or just for a sweet treat during the summer break with the kids. We are going to try a few of the other kind of oreos and see which are the best to get fried.
