a Fair Favorite: Fried Oreos
I know people have their favorite “kinds” of Oreos. Still, everyone loves them – from Double Stuff Oreos to special White Chocolate covered Oreos you get around the holidays, they’re everyone’s favorite cookie!
We have them in so many of our top desserts like Dirt Cake and Oreo Cheesecake. Today, we take Oreos to a whole new level – Deep Fried Oreos.
You may have tried them at your local fair, carnival, or rodeo, but today I’m showing you how to make them at home. I must warn that they are so incredibly easy to make and so stinkin’ delicious at the same time.
If you’re looking for a fun and unique treat to make at your next party, these Deep Fried Oreos will be a hit. Trust me!
How to make Fried Oreos
We make so many desserts with Oreos that we typically have them on hand. Making the actual Fried Oreos takes just a few steps.
PREP. These fried Oreos are made most easily in a deep fryer, but can also be made in a deeper pot or pan. You’ll just need a few inches of oil to fry these bad boys. Once that is all set up, follow these directions.
BATTER. Whisk oil, egg, and milk together in a medium bowl. Stir in pancake mix and mix until there are no more clumps.
FRY. Dip Oreos in the pancake batter with a fork and then place in hot oil. Deep fry until golden brown (it took about 2 minutes).
SPRINKLE. Place Oreos on a paper towel-lined plate to drain, sprinkle with powdered sugar and ENJOY!
We don’t make these often but when we do, they are definitely a hit!
Recipe Tips + Variations
Make these in a pan. We typically use our deep fryer to make Fried Oreos, but if you don’t have one you can definitely make it in a pan. Just add at least 2 inches of oil to the pan and fry until golden brown.
Oil. Peanut, canola, or vegetable oil can be used to make this treat.
Batter alternative. Use canned refrigerated biscuits wrapped around each Oreo instead of dipping them in the batter. You can then fry them in oil or use an air fryer.
Oreo flavors. Pair flavored Oreos with a similarly flavored frosting:
- Mint Oreos with a chocolate mint drizzle.
- Peanut Butter Oreos with a peanut butter dip.
- Gluten-free Oreos with gluten-free pancake mix. (Everything else in the recipe remains the same.)
STORE. Fried Oreos are best served shortly after frying them. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 1-2 days. Reheat them in a toaster oven or an air fryer.
Reheat Deep Fried Oreos. We recommend not reheating them because it’s hard to do with fried food. Instead, we’d say whip up a new batch because they’re easy and quick.

This sounds so yummy. Is it possible to use an Air Fryer?
I’m sure it probably is. I haven’t ever tried, but I imagine you could!
Thank you!! So glad you enjoyed the Oreos!
