Deep Fried Oreos

While we were on vacation, we took the boys to the movies. The theater at the beach had quite the selection of snacks outside the norm of popcorn and raisinettes. They had deep fried Oreos and funnel cakes. I didn't let the boys these since they were charging premium prices and I assured we could make these at home for a fraction of the price.

Deep Fried Oreos

1 cup buttermilk pancake mix
3/4 cup ice water
1 quart vegetable oil
1 sleeve of Oreo cookies (14 each)
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar


Freeze cookies for 3 hours. In 3-quart saucepan heat oil to 350 degrees F. While oil is heating, set up a cookie sheet with paper towels for draining.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl stir water into pancake mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. As soon as batter is smooth, dip each cookie, one at a time, into batter and smooth batter, making a thin coat completely around the cookie. Place coated cookie carefully into hot oil. Repeat for each cookie. Fry on both sides, turning over once until golden brown.

Remove fried cookie from hot oil with metal tongs and drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners sugar.

Let cool slightly (about 2 minutes) before serving.

I have always wanted to try these at the movie theater. However, I'm afraid it would result in a trip to the cardiologist's office! :-)
