Every year I look forward to the summer county fair and all the deep fried foods that are offered. One thing we almost always get are fried oreos. It occurred to me the other day that fried oreos aren’t actually very hard to make and I didn’t need to wait until the fair to enjoy them.

The fried oreos I’ve had at the fair are always dipped in pancake batter. So I basically did the same thing. I took a pack of oreos, some pancake batter, and fried them in a pan. They came out quite pretty. They weren’t quite sweet enough on their own, but a dusting of powdered sugar solves that problem.

I couldn’t believe how easy these were to make. And so much cheaper than getting them at the fair. I thought this version was good enough that I’m going to cross that off on my list of fair foods for next summer.

Homemade Fried Oreos


10 oreos
1 cup Bisquick pancake mix
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
powdered sugar for dusting


1. In a small bowl, mix Bisquick, milk and egg. Stir until combined with a few lumps remaining. Batter should be thick.
2. Add oil in a pan deep enough for frying. Add oil until you have about 1 inch of oil, and heat to a medium high.
3. Once the oil is hot, dip an oreo into the pancake batter, turning on both sides until the oreo is fully coated (try to hold oreo on the very tips of your fingers so that as much of the oreo is covered and your fingers don't get in the way). Place the oreo into the hot oil and cook for about 30 seconds -1 min on each side until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining oreos. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top before serving.

    Hi! I’m writing a page on Squidoo about deep fried Oreos, and I was wondering if I could use one of your photos because they’re gorgeous. I would give your site credit and include a link. Let me know. Thanks in advance for your response!

    Oh my gosh, I just made these, and it was so quick and so easy (AND delicious!). I had some Oreos I was looking to use, so I came across this site and thought I’d give them a shot. I probably could have cut the batter in half.

    Instead, I had leftover batter, so I looked for the nearest fun thing to experiment with. The answer? Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts!

    Not the healthiest, of course, but TRULY delicious.

    For dipping and removing, I used some tongs, which worked great. Thanks again for posting this!

      Fried Pop Tarts! Wow. I need to try that one out. I’ve never had a fried pop tart.

    Do these have to be eaten right away or will they hold out for a slumber party treat?

    • Kirbie replied: — February 15th, 2013 @ 9:20 am

      Like most fried foods, they should be eaten right away. Otherwise the fried batter won’t taste good later on.

    • Kirbie replied: — February 24th, 2013 @ 12:45 am

      I’ve only tried with Bisquick but I think buttermilk flapjack batter should work too.
