a Fair Favorite: Fried Oreos

Who here loves OREOS? 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 (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 as I share the recipe for Deep Fried Oreos.

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!

Fried Oreo Batter in bowl


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:

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 batter with a fork and then place in hot oil. Fry until golden brown (it took about 2 minutes).

SPRINKLE. 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!

Recipe FAQ

Can you 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 that easy and quick.

Can you 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.

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. 😉

    It was a very simple recipe and it was great. I also took some of the batter and added a little bit of coconut extract and wow that was great flavoring. My guests loved it. Thank you and look forward to trying more recipes.
