Milk's favorite cookie just got a little sweeter

Print this recipe
It must have taken a mad genius to look at an Oreo and think, "You know what would make that even better? Deep-frying it!" But thank goodness that person did, because battering and deep-frying these childhood favorites completely transforms them. With this recipe, the crispy chocolate cookie goes tender and soft, and the vanilla cream frosting oozes out in every bite.
Deep-fried Oreos are a cinch to make when you rely on pancake mix to make the batter. Fying them in peanut oil makes them delicately crisp on the outside and wonderfully fluffy inside: The perfect containing vessel for the Oreo within.

Heat the frying oil to 375 F in a deep-fryer or a deep pot such as a Dutch oven.

Working in batches, dip each Oreo in the pancake batter, covering it completely, and drop into the hot oil.

Sprinkle the hot Oreos with powdered sugar, and serve warm.
