The last sleepover for the season was last night. Four giggly girls with their Roblox, junk food, and movie night ready to go. I asked my daughter which snacks should I pick up for the celebratory event. Oreos, Pirate Booty, pretzels, and Hot Flamin Cheetos. Check! Some of the girls came with every sour candy you can think of. Must be nice to be 10.
Sometimes I get these crazy ideas, and anyone who knows me would agree. Fried Oroes…..I only see them at fairs, but I figured, let me take a stab at it. Super easy, so delicious. Hit of the party!! I defintely earned cool mom status, at least for 5 minutes.
These are simple to make. If I can do it, you can too. I fortunately own a frialator, but you can use a sauce pan 1/4 way filled with cooking oil to set on medium heat. Use tongs and/or a slotted spoon to help make the dipping process easy. I set my frialator on low as well, about 300 degrees.
- 12 Oreos, I used the Double Stuff, but any type will do
- 2 cups of Bisquick or your favorite pancake mix
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vaniila
- Confectioners sugar optional
Whisk Bisquick and egg together in a large bowl. Add in milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, whisking until well blended. If the batter is too liquidy, gradually add in 1/4 cup off pancake mix until you get a smooth but thick batter.
Dip Oreos fully into the batter until fully covered. I put three Oreos in at a time and place carefully into the oil. Let them fry for about two minutes, Flipping them after a minute on each side with tongs or slotted spoon.
I place a plate with paper towel over it to absorb excess oil. Place the Oreos on the plate when done. Let them cool a few minutes if you decide to sprinkle some confectioners sugar on top. Best enjoyed warm. Guaranteed you will be the coolest mom ever that they’ll always want to sleepover your house. Wait? Maybe that’s not a good thing?
