Fried Oreos; Fat Girl Post I first heard about fried oreos from Angela Simmons via her twitter. She was at some restaurant I think and she twit-pic fried oreos. Now when i first saw it; i was like eww. Who would eat such a thing? But me being the person I am decided to research this new snack craving that people are talking about. Its unknown as to who exactly first created these oreos( if you have information on who; let me know, so i can pay homage to that person) They are being compared to carnival snacks such as funnel cakes, corn dogs, etc. But fried oreos are heaven sent! especially with some icecream "licks lips, and goes to la-la land...." Here is the recipe for fried oreos. Im interested to know who has tried them; who would be willing to try them, and who thinks the idea is mortifying. Send me pics. Ill post pics of my cooking adventure later..
Enjoy :) 

Fried Oreos Recipe

Things You'll Need

  • 20 Oreo (or other chocolate sandwich) cookies (some people will freeze the cookie) 
  • 1 cup dry pancake mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 4-6 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • Deep fryer or large saucepan
  • Powdered (confectioner's) sugar


  • Measure dry pancake mix into large bowl. Crack egg, stir into mix.

  • Slowly add one cup of milk a little at a time, stirring after each addition. Stir in 2 tsp. vegetable oil

  • Pour oil into deep fryer up to fill line. If using a saucepan, pour in enough oil to cover the Oreos completely and allow them to float freely. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.

  • Dip the Oreos in the batter, turning to make sure they are completely coated. Do not let them soak in the batter for too long or they may get soggy and fall apart when you try to fry them.

  • Fry the Oreos in small batches (4 to 5 cookies at a time) for 1 to 2 minutes or until they are golden brown and puffy. Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon or spatula and let them dry on a plate covered with paper towels to soak up any grease.

  • Dust the Oreos with powdered sugar.

  •  Eat them while they are still warm.
