Deep Fried Oreo Cookies

The weekend before last the family ventured out to the Delaware State Fair where the kids rode the rides, gorged themselves on junk food and my daughter and I went to see Big Time Rush.(Yes, my concert going habits sure have changed over the years).
















Anyway, as my kids gorged themselves on deep fried Twinkies I noticed the woman sitting next to me eating some sort of deep fried something that looked delicious. I asked her what it was and she responded that they were deep fried Oreo cookies.  I had heard of these in the past and had always dismissed them as unhealthy and over the top indulgent.  But man, they looked GOOD!

Since I figured the batter used at the fair probably had egg in it I did not try any but decided that I would try to make a vegan version at home.

I had friends for dinner last night and we tested out my version of deep fried Oreo cookies. They were a huge hit with the kids and adults alike. In fact, the guys are already plotting and planning what they will deep fry next.  Candy  bars seem to be in the lead at the moment..

I promise these will knock your socks off!  And yes, they are unhealthy and over the top indulgent but man are they delicious! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Deep Fried Oreo Cookies

1 package of Oreo Cookies
1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup Bisquick Baking Mix
1 cup So Delicious Original Coffee Creamer
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup vegetable oil (for frying)
Confectioners sugar (for sprinkling)

Mix the Bisquick Baking Mix and Coffee creamer together to form a thick batter.  I started with a single cup of Bisquick and slowly added more until the batter was a nice thick consistency.  I estimate this to be between 1 and 1/2 cups and 1 and 3/4 cups.  Add the vanilla and stir well.

In a saute pan heat oil until it is very hot but not smoking.  Roll the Oreo cookies in the batter until well coated.  Drop into the hot oil and fry quickly on each side until golden brown (you could use a deep fryer as well).

Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to drain.  Plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Eat while still warm.

    So many reactions, but I sure would give it a try... makes me wonder what else they deep fat fried before they stayed with this idea.

  7. Thanks so much for this version as we have issues with dairy products and my daughter wanted to try these and all the other recipes have milk and eggs in them

    1. When we did them I believe we got around six or so of them-it was so long ago now that I don't remember exactly. I hope that helps. When/if I make them again I will update the post.

    1. Oreo's are "accidentally" vegan as is Bisquick baking mix. While not particularly healthy, this is vegan.
