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

      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?
