Fry for around a minute per side, and flip the Oreos so both sides cook. Then remove (I used this oil skimmer) and place on a paper towel-lined plate.

- Use any flavor of Oreo you would like. Peanut butter, mint, or even a vanilla Oreo would be delicious. Change up the fried Oreo ingredients to fit your preference.
- You can also use canned biscuit dough to wrap around each Oreo. If you want to know how to make fried Oreos without pancake mix.
- Make sure the oil doesn’t get too hot or it can burn the batter.
- Flip the Cookies carefully after a minute to make the other side golden brown as well.
- Let the cookies cool for a short bit, as they will be super hot.
- Use a slotted spoon for getting the deep fried foods out of the oil. This is going to help the excess oil to drip off.
- Use a candy thermometer to watch the oil temperature. If it gets too hot it will overcook or burn the batter but leave the center of the dough raw.
- I love using a large Dutch oven for frying as it is sturdy and will heat evenly without hot spots.
Ways to Serve up this Oreo dessert
Dust with powdered sugar (confectioner’s sugar) , or have a bowl of chocolate sauce, caramel or other sweet sauces for dipping.
