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. 😉

  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. 5 stars
    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. Hey! Just had a fried Oreo at the fair and loved them and saw your instructions but what type of oil do I use ? Thanks

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

  6. 5 stars
    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!

  7. 5 stars
    Great recipe. Simple and easy with great taste. I did 1/2 Aunt Jamima and 1/2 Bisquick on the batter. Only bec i saw both ways posted and then followed the Dire to the tee. Thanks for posting

  8. ThEse look so yummy! Im thinking of a bake sale for my son are they best fresh out the fryer or can they be cooled down lets say 3 hours?

    1. That’s a great question..I personally have not tried using a complete pancake mix. One way to find out 🙂

  9. 5 stars
    This was the best treat, we dipped them into ice cream and it was to die for. I think this recipe has caused a new obsession in our family.

  10. 5 stars
    This is awesome! I’ve had them so many times from fairs and food trucks but i never thought to make them myself until I saw your recipe! Easy and delicious!

  11. 5 stars
    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.

  12. You are so annoying!!! Why do you say things like “smokin hot hubby” and “six stinkin cute kids” no one FUCKING cares bruh!!!

    1. Right I hate her, I only come to this site for her damn recipes. I would hate to know her in person.
      ….Oh and the oreos were fab!

  13. 5 stars
    Tbh I agree. The recipes are good but I hate to scroll down too far. Also she should just stick to cooking, like women are supposed to be. I mean give those “stinkin” kids a damn bath!

  14. She needs to stop with that “Lil’ Luna” shit. It is not cute, funny, or quirky. I hope she gets a real life, I feel bad for her kids….
