I am not the biggest fan of Oreos. I love cookies'n'cream ice cream, but I really don't like to sit and eat an Oreo or two by itself. I know, it's like sacrilege or something. However, I was definitely intrigued to try fried Oreos at home. A few years back, the kids and I (prior to Mason) went to the New York State Fair while Nick was deployed. I looked and looked for fried Snickers but couldn't find any. I didn't want to settle on fried anything else just in case I found the Snickers. I saw fried Oreos everywhere. I knew they were a big deal.

Making them at home is super simple. I used my trusty deep fryer, but you can use a good deep skillet and it works just as well. They brown quickly so you have to babysit them, but that means that a ton are done in a very short amount of time. Which can also be a little dangerous. THEY ARE SO GOOD. I know that doesn't really mean much in terms of explaining what they taste like or convincing anyone that they need to try them. But you know how it is when you taste something and the first words out of your mouth are: THIS IS SO GOOD!! It's like that. The Oreo cookie softens up just slightly and the batter that you fry them in is divine. It works together somehow by some witchcraft and they are so good with a little powdered sugar dusted over top and a big glass of milk.
