How to fry Oreos

Featured
Oreos. Mans greatest achievement. These wonderful snack cakes are enjoyable to everyone with a glass of milk. But man soon grows bored with his simple dessert. What else is there to do to an already amazing snack?! Fry it.

Step 1: Ingredients

10 (or however many can quench your insatiable hunger) Regular Oreos
1 Bottle of Vegetable Oil
1* Box of Pancake Mix
1 Mixing bowl
1 Saucepan




* Instead of pancake mix, you can just substitute your own pancake batter or even waffle batter.

Step 2: Make Your Pancake Batter

Whip out your favorite dry pancake mix (or wet pancake mix, but I doubt that exists) and use your eyeballs to read the instructions on it. Use everything it tells you. Don't assume that "Oh nobody will know if I skimp out on using two eggs, and instead use this fake egg solution I found at the grocery store!" They will know.
When you are making your pancake batter, use more flour than it calls for, or less milk. You want the batter to be thicker than normal that way it clings to the oreos. I also threw in some vanilla extract and cinnamon for taste.

Step 3: Fill 'er Up!

Pour in just enough oil to totally cover the Oreos and to give them room to move around without hitting bottom. Set your stove-top to medium-high (ours went to 10, and I had it on 7). Using a candy thermometer (or any thermometer, I won't tell anyone) check the temperature every few minutes. When that bad boy reaches 280 Fahrenheit (138 Celsius), your ready to fry!

Your welcome! :)
hey you just stole this idea from ANN WARD
frozen hot chocolate is good too. You take a small ice cube tray and make chocolate ice balls then batter and fry. super yumm

Deep fried Twinkies are amazing too. Maybe one way to keep the items from melting during the frying step is to start with chilled items.

In Holland people eat fried stuff, you make them with a special batter. They're called 'oliebollen' (= oil balls, literally) and they are eaten at new years eve. With some raisins in them and powdersugar, they're lovely!
What?!?!

Don't they have 'oliebollen' in the U.S.?

How do they make it through New Years Eve without oliebollen?

you might try this with Nutter Butters or Almond Roca.
Looks good! I might try the Snickers and Reeses versions, never thought of those... They sound almost better then fried oreos ;P
