fried oreos

deep fried oreos recipe

Fried oreos are one of my favorite things to get at the fair. They’re everywhere at the Kentucky State Fair, along with deep fried twinkies and snickers bars. 😀 (ughhhhhhhh need) But they’re super easy to make at home, and they cost hardly anything! And what better way to end a fancy dinner?



  • double stuffed oreos (If you’re gonna do it might as well go all out!)
  • 1 1/4 cup pancake mix (I used Krusteaz buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon canola/veggie oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg

You’ll also need a pot filled with canola/veg oil heated to 350 F. I used a probe thermometer to make sure my temp was staying where it needed to be! 😀

Mix together the pancake mix with the rest of the ingredients – getting the batter right is key to nice fluffy fried oreos! You want the batter to be nice and thick and to coat the oreos well – if it’s so thin that you can see the designs on the cookie, you need to add more pancake mix.

You can see the difference between a thick batter and a thin batter below!

Fry the battered oreos right away in 350 F oil – they’ll puff up nicely! Flip them occasionally – they’ll only take a couple minutes. 🙂 Once they’re golden brown, drain them and remove them from the oil. Let them cool on paper towels and serve right away.

They’re not the best a couple hours after – they get soggy and weird. I cannot recommend frying them for eating later. 😉
