DEEP FRIED OREOS INGREDIENTS

Deep Fried Oreos raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 quart of vegetable oil
  • 1 package of “Double Stuf” Oreos
  • 1½ cups of Bisquick
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Confectioner’s sugar for dusting

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MILK: While Oreos are dairy-free to begin with, to eliminate the milk from the fried Oreo batter, you could simply replace the milk in the Bisquick mix with water. Just be aware that the batter will not be quite as creamy as it would have been otherwise.

OREOS: For a tasty twist, try using different flavors of Oreo cookies as the foundation for this recipe. Oreo makes so many fun and delicious flavors from red velvet and birthday cake to mint or peanut butter flavors. You could also pick a different brand of chocolate sandwich cookies if you would like. You can also create a perfect party tray by using a variety!

PANCAKE MIX: While our preference is Bisquick for the best fried dough, you can use any brand of pancake mix or a favorite homemade mix if you have one. Crescent rolls can also be used to wrap the cookie before frying for a simple alternative.

HOW TO MAKE FRIED OREOS

STEP ONE: Heat oil in a large Dutch oven to 350°F. Make sure to test the temperature of your oil with a candy thermometer. If it is too hot, your deep-fried Oreos will burn!

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

It is important to make sure you have enough oil to submerge the Oreos.

STEP TWO: In a medium bowl, whisk together the beaten egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Add the pancake mix and whisk until no lumps remain.

STEP THREE: Using a large spoon, dip an Oreo into the batter and turn it over to ensure it is fully coated. Then, scoop up the Oreo and a spoonful of pancake batter.

PRO TIP:

While you can use a fork inserted into the Oreo, this method of using a spoon allows for a more even coating and less breakage, resulting in a fully enclosed and puffy dough around the cookie.

STEP FOUR: Slowly put the batter-covered Oreo into the hot oil. As you are lowering the spoon into the oil, turn it over so that the Oreo is on the bottom and the extra batter ends up on the top. Let the Oreo cook for about 30-60 seconds (depending on how hot your oil is), or until the Oreo has turned golden brown.

STEP FIVE: Cook the Oreos in batches of 2-3 at a time, and keep an eye on your oil temperature.

PRO TIP:

As you are frying up your Oreos, be sure to pick out any pieces of dough that have fallen off into the oil. They will burn and make the Oreos taste burnt.

STEP SIX: Remove the fried Oreos using a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate. Then, sprinkle the coated cookies with powdered sugar and serve immediately while the creme filling is still hot!

CAN THIS FRIED OREOS RECIPE BE MADE IN AN AIR FRYER?

You can use an air fryer. The texture and final product will be a bit different than if you fry them using oil but they will still be delicious!

Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Put your battered Oreos into an air fryer basket that has been lined with parchment paper. Then, cook the Oreos for 4-5 minutes on one side. Flip them and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they are golden brown. 

HOW TO SERVE A FRIED OREO

Recreate the local carnival experience and serve this unique treat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or make a few different carnival treats including our mini funnel cakes and Disney churro bites.

If you are an Oreo lover, then you’ve also got to try out some of our other favorites, including this easy Oreo dessert or no bake Oreo pie.

DEEP FRIED OREOS RECIPE STORAGE

ON THE COUNTER: Ideally, you should eat fried Oreos right away. This perfect treat is best when they are hot and fresh to enjoy the melted center. They will get soggy if they sit for too long, or if they cool off and have to be reheated. That being said, you can keep them on the counter for a couple of hours if necessary.

IN THE FREEZER: We do not recommend freezing deep-fried Oreos as they will become soggy. Stick with making these fresh.

FRIED OREO RECIPE FAQ

What is Fried Oreo Batter Made of?

We use Bisquick combined with egg, vanilla extract, and whole milk to make the crispy batter for the fried Oreos.

Can I use any type of sandwich cookie for this recipe?

Any sandwich cookie will be delicious in this recipe. Whether traditional Oreos or another Oreo flavor, you can pick your favorite.

Can You Use Water Instead of Milk for Fried Oreos?

You can certainly substitute water for milk in the batter, just be aware that the mixture will not be quite as creamy.

Do You Have to Freeze Oreos Before Frying?

Freezing Oreos before frying is an optional step. If you fry room-temperature Oreos, they will be somewhat softer after the frying process. Freezing the Oreos first produces firmer cookies in the finished product.

What is the best oil to use for deep frying?

Vegetable oil is the standard oil used for deep frying at home. It heats to the right temperature and won’t leave any extra taste on the finished product.

How long do deep fried Oreos last?

This sweet treat is best served fresh before they cool. Once they cool, the batter will become soggy and won’t have that delicious, fried taste.
