It’s hard to think of anything yummier or more comforting than an Oreo.
For many of us, they bring up fond memories of childhood. Maybe you were that kid who wolfed them down, one after another. Maybe you were inclined to dunk each one in a big ol’ glass of milk. Or maybe you were the kind of kiddo who would pull each half of the cookie sandwich apart, slowly devour the creamy center, and then munch away at the chocolatey cookie goodness.
Whatever your method of Oreo consumption, these classic cookies hold a special place in our hearts. And we certainly don’t have to leave Oreos behind in childhood. There are tons of delicious ways to enjoy them and bake with them as adults.
Deep-Fried Oreo Cookies
Yes, deep-fried Oreos are a thing. It feels like the ultimate American junky but delicious food creation—and the ultimate indulgence. It’s a favorite for fair season, but since fairs aren’t likely to be much of a thing for the time being, we might as well make them at home!
The good news is that deep-fried Oreos are fairly easy to recreate in our own kitchens. In addition to Oreo cookies, all you need is pancake mix, vegetable oil, water, and powdered sugar for dusting. And it goes without saying that they do require a bit of deep-frying, so do be careful with all that hot oil!
