Deep fried Oreos are a country fair staple that you anticipate all year. This amazing treat takes the simple Oreo to the next level, making it even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, until now, you could only acquire one a few times a year. Fixing deep fried Oreos in your own kitchen is no harder than any other fried dessert. By simply creating the
Table of Contents
- 2 quarts oil for frying (vegetable oil or peanut oil are usually recommended)
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1.5 teaspoons oil
- 1 cup pancake mix
- 1 package of Oreos (use your favorite kind)
- Powdered sugar, for sprinkling
Heat the oil in your deep fryer to 375 degrees. Stir together the egg, milk, 1.5 teaspoons of oil, and pancake mix until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain. Dip each of the Oreos in the batter, dipping quickly to prevent them from becoming soggy. In general, it’s recommended that they go from the batter to the fryer quickly, so it may be more efficient for you to dip and fry in batches. Insert the battered Oreos in the deep fryer. Cook only 3-4 Oreos at a time to avoid overcrowding and sticking. Fry until golden brown, around 2-3 minutes per batch. Place them on paper towels to drain and cool. While the Oreos are still hot, dust them with powdered sugar. You can also drizzle with chocolate to create an even more decadent treat.
Tips and Tricks
Some cooks have noted that deep fried Oreos are at their best within a few minutes of being removed from the fryer. This is a very greasy treat that can quickly become soggy, so waiting until the next day to enjoy your Oreos isn’t recommended. Make smaller batches and enjoy them as you cook them.
If you’re struggling with cookies that crumble before they hit the deep fryer or if your cream center is becoming too melted, try popping them in the freezer for half an hour before frying. This will help maintain the cookies’ integrity and keep the cream center intact.
Consider serving your deep fried Oreos with vanilla ice cream, caramel drizzle, or with a squirt of whipped cream if you’re looking for a little something extra with your treat.
Keep a close eye on your cookies, and don’t walk away while cooking. They cook quickly and could burn if unattended.
