When it comes to dessert, I say go hard or go home. If you're going to indulge, then really indulge, or don't bother. These homemade fried Oreos are the perfect hard-hitting indulgence.
While fried oreos are often found at state fairs, there's no need to wait for one to get your fix. The sinfully delicious treats are actually much easier to make than they look. This recipe from Kirbie Craving is simple to follow and comes out great every time. You don't even need a deep-fryer -- just a pan that will hold about an inch of oil is fine. They're great to make for parties, but beware -- they disappear as fast as you can make them.
1 cup Bisquick pancake mix
1/2 cup milk
Powdered sugar for dusting
In a small bowl, mix Bisquick, milk, and egg. Stir until combined with a few lumps remaining. Batter should be thick.
Add oil in a pan deep enough for frying. Add oil until you have about one inch of oil, and heat to a medium high.
Once the oil is hot, dip an Oreo into the pancake batter, turning on both sides until the Oreo is fully coated (try to hold Oreo on the very tips of your fingers so that as much of the Oreo is covered and your fingers don't get in the way). Place the Oreo into the hot oil and cook for about 30 seconds to one min on each side until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining Oreos. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top before serving.
