Everyone goes crazy for this delicious and fun dessert. I can’t wait for you to give these a try at home. You might even like them better than the ones you’ve had at a carnival or fair!

 

Ingredients

While we all know that eating tons of fried food is never good (even as delicious as they are) this fried Oreos recipe can be so fun to make. It’s such a unique treat, and a super fun way to bring home that favorite carnival/fair food.

The ingredients list is quite simple. I tend to have most of the ingredients on hand in my pantry. To make fried Oreos here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 quart of vegetable oil
  • 1 package of Double Stuffed Oreos (or one of the other options listed below!)
  • 1 ½ cups of Bisquick
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Powdered Sugar for dusting

As you saw in the ingredients list above, making the batter for your fried Oreos is as simple as whipping up some pancake batter!

I always use Bisquick, because I have found that it tends to make the best fried Oreo batter. However, you can use just about any pancake mix.

If you have a brand you prefer, give it a try! It can be fun to test out a few different batters to see which flavor and consistency you like best.

How to Make Deep Fried Oreos

  1. Heat oil in a large dutch oven to 350 degrees. Make sure to test the temperature of your oil. If it is too hot your Oreos will burn!
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the beaten egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Add the pancake mix and whisk until no lumps remain.
  3. Next, you’ll be ready to dip your Oreos! To do this, place one oreo on a large spoon. Then, dip the oreo into the batter and turn over. Then, scoop up the Oreo and a spoonful of pancake batter. NOTE: Make sure that the tops and sides of the Oreo are all covered equally and look pretty! It will affect how they look once they’ve been fried.*
  4. Slowly put the batter covered Oreo into the oil. As you are lowering the spoon into the oil, turn it over so that the oreo is on the bottom and the extra batter ends up on the top.
  5. Then, let the Oreo cook for about 30-60 seconds (depending how hot your oil is), or until the Oreo has turned golden brown.
  6. Cook the Oreos in batches of 2-3 at a time, and keep an eye on your oil temperature.
  7. Remove the Deep Fried Oreos to a paper-lined plate. Then, sprinkle them with powdered sugar and serve immediately while the creme filling is still hot!

How to make Deep Fried Oreos

Pro-Tips

  • Many other recipes you will find out there will call for you to heat your oil up to 375 degrees. We really recommend only going to 350 degrees. If you heat to 375 it’s too hot and the Oreos cook in about 20 seconds per side and almost burn. 20 seconds is not enough time to let the creme filling get melty!
  • You might find instructions out there telling you to insert a fork into the center of the creme filling to cover it in batter and put it into the oil. When trying this technique, we found that the Oreos broke really easily! It’s better to follow the instructions we’ve provided above, that use a spoon method instead!
  • As you are frying up your Oreos, be sure to pick out any pieces of Bisquick batter that have fallen off into the oil. They will burn and make the deep-fried Oreos taste burnt.

Can I Use Flavored Oreos for Fried Oreos?

This is where this recipe can get really fun. You could pretty much use any style of Oreo cookie for this recipe, so the options are endless!

Above, I say that using Double Stuffed Oreos is best. They are much creamier than just your regular Oreos. However, Oreo makes so many fun and delicious flavors.

Here is a list of possible flavors you could try out in your fried Oreos:

  • Birthday Cake Oreos
  • Chocolate Creme Oreos (for the chocolate lovers!)
  • Peanut Butter Oreos
  • Golden Oreos
  • Mint Oreos

Deep Fried Oreos with milk and a black and white strawCan you Make Deep Fried Oreos in the Air Fryer?

Air fryers are truly amazing. You can make just about anything in them, including Fried Oreos!

To do so, you will follow all of the above instructions, but when it comes time to putting the Oreos in the oil, you will put them into the air fryer instead.

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Put your battered Oreos into an air fryer basket that has been lined with parchment paper. Then, cook the Oreos for 4-5 minutes on one side. Flip them, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until they are golden brown.

The texture and final product is a bit different than if you fry them using oil. I prefer to use oil, but an air fryer can be another quick and easy method for making your fried Oreos!

Can you Reheat Fried Oreos?

I highly recommend eating your fried Oreos right away. They are best when they are hot and fresh. They will get soggy if they sit for too long, or if they cool off and have to be reheated.
