Oreos are pretty spectacular on their own and probably even more amazing with a glass of milk, but imagine the thought of sinking your teeth into a deep fried Oreo. Traditionally, it’s a treat found at the carnival but I’m bringing it to you with this easy homemade deep fried Oreo recipe.

For more fried Oreo deliciousness, I highly encourage using some of the new Oreo flavors! No doubt fried red velvet Oreos and fried peanut butter cup Oreos are going to take this recipe to another level.
