Fair Favorite: Fried Oreos

Who here loves OREOS? Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that didn’t like them. Yes, I know people have their favorite “kinds” of Oreos, but everyone loves them – from Double Stuffed to Golden, to the special White Chocolate covered Oreos you get around the holidays, they’re everyone’s favorite cookies. Today, we take Oreos to a whole new level as I share the recipe for Deep Fried Oreos.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Yes, you may have tried them at your local fair/carnival/rodeo, and you probably loved them, 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. They’re so fun to change up too based on the kind of Oreo you make it with. Even today I saw Blueberry Pie Oreos, so imagine making them deep fried with that variety (the options are endless).

Now, even I admit that too much fried food isn’t good for you, but if you’re looking for a fun and unique treat to make at your next party or get together, these Deep Fried Oreos will be a hit. Trust me – I know. I made them for some friends a few weeks ago and everyone loved them. And best part is you can make them with common ingredients from home!

Ingredients for Fried Oreos

We make so many desserts with Oreos that we typically have them on hand. The other ingredients for this recipe are also pantry staples and include:

  • oil
  • pancake mix
  • eggs
  • milk
  • powdered sugar

With these ingredients, making the actual Fried Oreos takes just a few steps.

How to Make Fried Oreos

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, you’ll just need to follow these directions:

  1. Whisk oil, egg and milk together in a medium bowl. Stir in pancake mix and mix until there are no more clumps.
  2. Dip Oreos in batter with a fork and then place in hot oil. Fry until golden brown (it took about 2 minutes).
  3. Place Oreos on paper towel lined plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar and ENJOY!

We don’t make these often but when we do, they are definitely a hit!

Fried Oreos Recipe

Believe it or not, I think I liked the Golden Oreos version the best, but since we’ve made these we’ve tried several Oreo varieties and they are all amazing!! I hope you agree these are dangerously easy and amazing!! I usually have all the ingredients on hand and my fryer close by, which means we’ve made these too many times. They are always a hit with guests and are usually well received since you usually only find these at the local carnival. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I was wondering what type of pancake mix did you use , I can’t wait to make these I’m going to use birthday cake oreos ( my favorite) and mint oreos for my niece her favorite! !!

  2. Is it possible to break this down? Me and my three year old are the only ones who eat them so this makes a lot of batter for only about 5-7 Oreos. Or is there a way to save the rest to make small batches every couple of days?

    1. I haven’t tried freezing it and you can’t really half one egg, so maybe freezing would work. Or keep in the fridge and make a few more a few days later?? Let me know what you try, I’d love to know. With 5 kids, I never have leftovers! Thank you!

  3. so I the recipe to the T the first time . And there was a lot of battery left. The second time I used a cup pancake mix in a half a cup of milk and follow the rest of the instructions to the recipe. I was able to make 12 dozen with that amount of batter . There was no batter to waste this time .

  4. I was only looking for a funnel cake recipe but I see so many other recipes, I just subscribed, lol

  5. I had never tried a deep fried oreo before, but I love oreos, so I thought i’d try. I have been missing out! they were so easy to make & so good!! you could really use any oreo & even dip them in my favorite, chocolate!
