Instructables
Picture of fried oreos
Fried oreos are a state fair special. The ones at the Kentucky State Fair are especially good. I know because I have eaten lots of them. :D

Fried oreos are also a fun dinner party dessert because they're so easy to make at home. This might be a bad thing to share with the internets, and I might be contributing to the rise of obesity, but good lord they're good.

As my boyfriend said:
"It's like a pancake and an oreo had a delicious baby!"

He ate six fried oreos. This, my friends, is a man who knows what he's talking about.

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • double stuffed oreos (If you're gonna do it might as well go all out!)
  • 1 1/4 cup pancake mix (I used Krusteaz buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon canola/veggie oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
You'll also need a pot filled with canola/veg oil heated to 350 F. I used a probe thermometer to make sure my temp was staying where it needed to be! :D

Step 2: Make the batter and heat the oil

Put the pot of oil on the stove over medium heat.

In one bowl, mix together the milk, egg and oil. Mix it really well - you shouldn't have any bits of egg floating around. Add a pinch of salt to the pancake mix, and then pour in the milk mixture.

Combine these two with a whisk until you're nearly clump free. :D

Step 3: Getting the right batter consistency

Depending on your pancake mix, you mix have a runny batter right now. We'll do a test fry to see how things are going. :D

As you can see, the fried oreos on the left are looking a little sad. The batter for these was just too thin. I originally started out with a 1:1 ratio of pancake mix and milk and it just wasn't working. Adding another 1/4 cup of pancake mix made it perfect.

So if your batter is too thin, just add mix little by little (1/4 cup at a time) until it's thick enough to cover the oreo well!

Just wondering why Instructables makes it less than easy to SHARE such ideas with others.
Yes, there's a 'F' (Facebook) button, but it' not where it's supposed to be.
Why not put it up where folks can actually see and use it?

Instructables is a way of sharing. Facebook isn't a default (and some of us won't get near it).
I am with all the way on this. That bizarre response you got only reinforces that despite the winky face. They can stick their virtual thumbs in their virtual bums. Aye, I think I just had an AOL flashback.

Fried Cookie?! Another one of Jessy's guides Evernoted

You have been identified. Don't comment to me/us about this again. It will be taken as harassment otherwise. ;)
ha ha ... ROFL. +1... no, +2, so you can both share...lol

These actually look quite delicious! I didn't think much of them, but that was before I saw them like this...
I made these for my family for christmas. At first (before they even tried them), my family found it a gross idea. Luckily, they gathered courage and tried some. They were all eaten in no-time. :D

Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

There's no longer any need to attend a state or county fair. Touché, madame.
One of the best things I've made in a deep fryer. Now if only they were healthier. Haha
looks nummy. All that's missing is a wrap of bacon. ;)
...wow

In case ya all missed the Fair this year--that would be the Washington Count NY Fair one of the OLDEST continous running Fairs in this country that is!!!!--after you pig out on the Fried Oreos try the Fried Pickles; Mars Bars; PB&J; Twinkies; Reeses Cups; Cheesecake--IS there anything MORE fattening and decadent than FRIED CHEESECAKE?--if there is please do not let me know I already HAVE my last meal planned!!!!

I heard once that you can deep fry pretty much ANYTHING if the INSIDE is FROZEN ie candy bars and cheesecake and the batter is the right thickness and the oil is HOT. The oil "Flash Cooks" the outside so the inside doesn't soak up as much grease as one might think. And then the heat makes the insides gooey but not runny.

I am sure I am forgetting some of the other Fried Goodness' but I think I sustained a little brain damage from the Cheesecake Episode.

I am thinking about putting them on a stick before deep frying them. Easier to clean up, and plus everything tastes better on a stick.

break Oreo's up in your favorite waffle mix ! now that's a yummy breakfast !
jessyratfink (author)  fretted1 year ago
That does sound excellent. :D Yet another reason to get a waffle iron!
Do you a recipe of pancake batter made from scratch that would work well? Or would you just reccomend that I use my usual from-scratch pancake recipe?

Greetings from Germany ;)
jessyratfink (author)  crazyjack241 year ago
I would just use your from scratch recipe with a little less liquid. That should work perfectly. :D

The Oreo's are already baked, if you fry them less nutritious value remains in the little if any they had before...Have fun.
I've made these before, boy did i get sick :)

I have recently stocked up on a huge box of oreos........... just need pancake mix now..... :-D
Jessy, you should visit Scotland, they fry everything there!
Deep fried pizza and deep fried mars bars are famous dishes, probably not good for the figure though.

Damn, that looks so wrong *secretly wishes he had Oreos to do this, but it to lazy to go to the grocery store*

The look soo good: need to fry some up next we have a pot ready to do sourdough donuts! It's also nice that the pancake batter frys so well.

Looks good Jessy. =) Does the Oreos get soft after frying them?
jessyratfink (author)  PitStoP1 year ago
Thanks! :D

And they do - the cookies soften a little bit, and the cream gets gooey. They're so good!
