This is a carnival favorite where I grew up. Oreos get dipped into pancake batter and fried - yummy!! You can do this with or without a deep fryer.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Whisk together the egg, milk, and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the pancake mix until no dry lumps remain. Dip the cookies into the batter one at a time, and carefully place into the hot frying oil. Fry only 4 or 5 at a time to avoid overcrowding the deep fryer. Cook until the cookies are golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

So so so bad, yet so so so good. Love em. Just mix up some pancake batter with water until the consistency is enough to coat the cookie, you don't need egg or milk. Read More

They do taste good right after coming out of the oil. However, are terribly greasy and unappetizing if they sit for too long and definitely not good at all for the next day. Read More

I fixed these last night and they were pretty good. They had a funnel cake taste to them. One thing is they have to be eaten right away when they are still warm. They were not very good once they cooled. I would still fix them again. Read More

Oh my how delicious! I left out the egg and milk and just used the pancake mix. Not the prettiest end result but that doesn't matter because they disappear FAST. Thanks for this sinful fabulous treat! Read More

Awesome recipe for a sweet tooth! Make the batter thick enough that when you allow it to drip off the spoon, a good amount will stick. Place in the frig for a couple of hours. As well, put the cookies in the freezer for the same amount of time. When the cookies are done and you take them out of the hot oil, place them on a cooling rack to allow for the extra grease to drain off. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with chocolate or syrup. .........AND I HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH MANY OTHER REVIEWS, ours kept very well and were just as good the second day!

Simply delicious! I changed a bit this recipe. Instead of mixing egg,milk, etc..I bought the Add water only Pancake Mix and that was it! You gotta try it!! Leave the mix a bit on the thicker side to get that right fluffyness. I have been doing them for my church fundraiser and its been a hit! Don't forget your glass of milk ; ) Read More
