Rodeo Houston and Fried Oreos

on March 18, 2013

My friend Robert and our fried goodies, Oreos, Twinkies and a fried Snickers.

Tip of the Day: I hate doing laundry. I mean honestly it just takes forever. To make the process a little less annoying and a little easier on the light bill throw in two (or more) tennis balls in the dryer with your clothes. It really does make your clothes dry faster any my towels were more soft even!


Trying my first fried Oreo.



I live in Texas and yes we have a rodeo. The Houston Live Stock and Rodeo Show to be exact.  Every year it’s a tradition that my best friend Robert and I go to see someone in the concerts. This year we had the amazing pleasure of getting to go see The Band Perry. They put on an awesome show! I don’t know how they dance around the stage the whole time singing and dancing, especially that one guy in leather pants.

Anyways, we go every year and I had never, truthfully, never had a fried Oreo. I’ve had the turkey legs, sausage on a stick, and BBQ but not a fried Oreo. This year I was on a mission to try one. It was great. Soft and chocolate and all things sinful. I wanted to recreate these bad boys at home so my family could enjoy them with me. A little time later I bought some Oreos and got to frying. So easy to make and even easier to eat!


Diana’s Original Recipe

Bisquick Mix (or your favorite pancake mix)

Oreos (I used Double Stuffed)

Shorting (or pure vegetable oil)

Powder Sugar

Chocolate Syrup

Make pancake mix, I used Bisquick as directed.

Add 1/4 cup of sugar to batter.

Heat enough Shorting to be at least two inches deep in the pan you are using.

Coat each Oreo with a thick coating of pancake batter, One at a time, immediately fry one at a time, for roughly 45 seconds per side.

Let cool for about two minutes and drizzle chocolate, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Don’t worry the more the better.

PS- just imagine the possibilities, with all these great flavors of Oreos. I’m thinking next time to use the peanut butter flavor, or since it’s seasonal the Birthday cake Oreos. Oh choices
