Fried Oreo

Fried Oreos

Today is the first day of Fall. I didn’t want summer to be long gone before I share with you a fun treat. This summer while we were at the boardwalk we enjoyed Fried Oreos. Ever since we had them, no one could stop thinking about them. They were like Chocolate filled Zeppoles {think funnel cake}.

I don’t typically deep fry food at home. But this was for Oreos after all.

How could I resist?

I made two batters to see which one I like better. The yeast batter that is used for funnel cake, was very light and crispy, but it didn’t turn out well at all. The center of the Oreo dissolved and there wasn’t much batter to enjoy….when we had  them at the boradwalk, they were coated with a thicker layer of dough.

Since I like pancakes batter and it worked out well for

Pancake Cupcakes

Mango Pecan Pancake Pie and others here


and a fun Pancake Cake

I gave it a try and you know what..

It worked!

Fried Oreos

Fried Oreo
  • Pancake mix
  • oil
  • powdered sugar
  1. Mix pancake batter according to package or try this great
  2. Pancake Recipe
  3. Have 3 inches of oil hot and ready.
  4. Drop a bit of batter in and see if it drops then floats and bubbles up.
  5. If it's not hot enough the Fried Oreos will be greasy.
  6. When your oil is hot enough dip each oreo in batter and then into the oil, flip each Oreo over so they are golden on both sides.
  7. It will only take a couple minutes until they are cooked.
  8. Strain on a tray with paper towels, then dust with powdered sugar while they are still hot.
  9. Let cool a minute or two before eating.

They were delicious and I am glad we made them, it brought back great memories of our summer vacation!

Do you have a great food memory of this summer? Did you make it or recreate it? Feel free to share it with me, I’d love to see it.

    I don’t deep fry at home, either, but i think I could deal with 3 inches of oil—that’s not too bad, and these look really delicious. Even the outer dough part looks tempting!

    Your fried Oreos are spectacular. I bought some at the fair and they had uncooked batter around the Oreo and were just nasty. I wish I’d had yours instead.

    Fried oreos are the absolute best!!! I tried those at a fair a few years ago and fell in love with them. Your homemade ones look absolute delicious!!! I am now craving them and it is still morning;-)

    wow! Hugs and wishes for a joy filled weekend.

    OMG-I LOVE this, Diane. I’ve actually never had one, but yours looks so much better than the ones I’ve seen at the fair.

  6. 6

    Wow, I’m getting excited over these just looking at the picture. Those look very very tasty!

  7. 7

    These look amazing. I’ve never had fried oreos, but I am itching to. Baby Boy was too young for us to head to shore this year so maybe next year…. Or I could just fry up a batch of these at home :)

  8. 8

    Oh wow! Those beat anything I’ve ever seen at the fair before – so decadent!

  9. 9

    Those look mighty delicious!

    I had one once, and decided that was a wonderful treat I only had to have once in a lifetime! But congratulations on figuring it out! I never would have dreamt it was pancake batter.

  11. 11

    OMG SOLD! I could see this as a treat day treat :)

  12. 12

    I’m beginning to think that there is nothing you can’t make from pancake batter! Another unique and delicious treat from your kitchen.

    I’ve seen these at some of the little festivals and fairs around here, but I can never bring myself to try them……..#1. for fear of being labeled at the fat girl eatting fried oreo, and #2… they are to darn expensive to me haha, But with this DIY home recipe. I might have to try them

  14. 14

    awesome! I am working on a huge fried project. I might need to ask you some pointers

      I can only tell you that at the boardwalk they had a whole list of fried candy….I have a photo of the list if you’d like to see it…really is funny. Also tried fried pickles but haven’t had fried butter, have you?

    Diane, You’re amazing! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    FYI~I was finally able to get onto my Munchkin Munchies fb page(as the admin), but it won’t let me comment as MM! Oh well.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    This has to be one of the most creative and different dessert bites I have ever seen. I love sweets sprinkled with powdered sugar. Your photographs are wonderful!

  24. 26

    What a treat, Diane! My kids would be over-the-moon excited if I made these for them.

  25. 27

    that makes perfect sense, almost like a fritter! My girls would go crazy if I taught them to make these, what a great treat for the end of summer!

  26. 28

    So wrong and yet so right! :)

    I first saw those at the State Fair but it really ruined my experience with them. The Oreo inside was soaked in oil. I have a feeling a homemade version would be a lot better.

    Fried Oreos??? Holy mother of pearl! I need these right now!!! I’m so making these. Thanks!
