Stove Top Fried Oreos

Stove Top Fried Oreos

pancake batter + Oreos + powdered sugar = one helluva dessert or after school snack

I am in love with this very hardly homemade dessert for many reasons.

  1. It’s quick.
  2. It’s satisfying.
  3. It goes with just about any menu.
  4. You can fry them ahead of time, and do a quick reheat in the oven when you want to serve them for your people.
  5. One box of Oreos can serve a crowd, and I promise there won’t be leftovers.

Someone very kind at Leyden’s Christmas Tree Farm food tent shared this secret with me, and I am forever grateful. Please pass this recipe along to your people and make sure you tell them it’s “hardly homemade”.

You will need a deep skillet or stock pot to make these treats on the stove top. I prefer a deep skillet for this one because it's quicker that way.


  • 4 cups of Original Bisquick Mix
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • About 5 cups of neutral oil (such as Vegetable oil, Canola oil or Soybean Oil)
  • Step 1 Prepare the Bisquick batter according to the directions on the box.
  • Step 2 Heat the oil in a deep skillet or stock pot and bring the heat up slowly. When the heat is between 350 and 375 degrees, it is ready. If you don’t have a thermometer, then test the temperature with a 1 tsp of batter. If the batter fries quickly, without burning, it is ready. It takes a little trial and error, but when you get the temp just right, it’s time to fry!
  • Step 3 In batches of 5, put the Oreos in the mixing bowl of batter and coat both sides. Put a mitten, glove or oven mitt on your hand, and one at a time, with a fork in the hand with a mitt, slowly lower each Oreo into the oil. When all five Oreos are in the pan, immediately go back to the first Oreo you put in and flip it, and then flip the others in the order they were put in. Once they all have been flipped, take each one out in that same order. Repeat with the remaining batches.
  • Step 4 Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve hot. Enjoy!
