Deep Fried Oreos

You have no idea how good these are.

Just remember moderation is key. Now don't make these when you are alone because you will easily want to eat every last bite. Last month one of our friends, JM, who also has a food blog Plated Perfection, co-hosted a Deep Frying Party with her boyfriend. If you have never heard of a Deep Frying Party, it is a party where the guests bring food and then the host fries it. Zack and I decided to bring/make fried pickles, fried mac and cheese and fried Oreos. Some other items people bought/made were doughnuts, fried mozzarella, chips, chicken tenders, and calamari. I may be forgetting a couple things, but I think you get the point. The fried Oreos ended up being much more delicious than anybody expected they were tied with the pickles as my and Zack's favorite. They could not be more simple. You just make a batter with pancake mix and then fry it. When you make these, you should really serve them warm. The Oreo becomes the same soft texture as the rest of the cake. They really just melt in your mouth! I suggest dusting them in powdered sugar and going to town.

Deep Fried Oreos
recipe adapted from

2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
1 large egg
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup pancake mix
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 (18 ounce) package Oreos
Powdered Sugar for dusting

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Whisk together the egg, milk, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the pancake mix and salt until no dry lumps remain. Dip the cookies into the batter one at a time, and carefully place into the hot frying oil. Fry only 4 or 5 at a time to avoid overcrowding the deep fryer. Cook until the cookies are golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.
Dust with powdered sugar.
