much of a good thing!(lol)

I am completely flabbergasted~!!

As if they aren't a treat all on their own, I found this:.....

Deep-Fried Oreos
From Shirley London
October 22, 2003

Deep-Fried Twinkies, fried chocolate bars and now fried cookies have been selling like hot cakes at fairs around the nation recently.

Deep-Fried Oreos The chefs behind these sugary fried treats say success depends on the batter, which insulates the fried object from direct contact with the oil. If the batter is done right, it will become an edible shell and protect its the melted innards.

Shirley London shared the recipe for her deep-fried Oreo cookie treat with Good Morning America.


  • 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

  • Directions

    1. Freeze cookies for 3 hours.

    2. In a heavy-gauge 3-quart saucepot heat oil to 350 degrees F.

    3. While oil is heating, set up a sheetpan with paper towels for draining.

    4. In a medium-sized mixing bowl stir water into buttermilk 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.

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

    6. Let cool slightly (about 2 minutes) before serving.

    I gotta say that coming from someone that has never said the words "too greasy" or "too much cheese", this looks awful.
