Something unique and yummy… that’s what I was thinking when I created the recipe for this post. I love getting a deep fried OREO at the fair every summer. As it turns out, pumpkin and chocolate are an unusual but perfect flavor pairing. That fact made me feel certain I could come up with a pumpkin batter to fry OREOs in.
Yep… it was a good thought! More on that in a moment…
I was just at Walmart yesterday and picked up this big box of OREOs:
I wanted you to see how cool this is! I held one of the individual packages of OREOs up to a light for just a moment and then flipped off the lights…
It’s hard to get a picture that does the glow in the dark package justice, but they’re so fun! We’ll be giving these out to the kids for Trick-or-Treat.
Alright, back to fried OREOs…
I’ve learned that everyone measures flour a bit differently. If you follow my recipe for these fried OREOs then your batter should be thick like pancake batter; thick enough to coat the OREOs well. If your batter is too thin then the finished fried OREO will not be great. Just a little tip for you there!
Pumpkin Fried OREOs
20 OREO cookies (original or Double Stuff, whichever you prefer)
1 1/4 cup dry pancake mix (also called “baking mix”)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Dash of salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
Vegetable oil for frying
Powdered sugar for dusting
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the pancake mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, egg, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, milk, and pumpkin. Mix well by hand until smooth.
2. Pour the vegetable oil for frying into a medium size pot, at least 2 inches deep. Heat the oil to about 350 degrees (medium to medium-high heat).
3. Dip the OREOs in the batter and coat completely. Carefully place them in the hot oil to fry until golden brown on each side. This took me about 1 minute per side when the oil was at the right temperature.
4. Place the fried OREOs on a towel to cool. Serve dusted with powdered sugar.
Makes 10 servings.
Yum! Fried OREOs are such a special treat. The OREO becomes soft and the batter is just lightly sweet and crispy around the edges. These are basically OREOs inside of a funnel cake.
For another fun Halloween treat, freeze gummy worms in ice cubes for Wild Wormy Punch. As it turns out, I don’t have an ice tray! So I improvised and used small plastic food storage containers. Worked like a charm!
I placed two gummy worms in each container or water and froze them until solid:
Once the ice cubes are frozen, place them in cups or a punch bowl:
Pour Orange Fanta over the ice cubes and serve:
How cute are is this?! And like, way easy. So perfect for a fall party!
I found my Fanta and OREOs at Walmart:
What is your favorite Fanta flavor? Will you try pumpkin fried OREOs this fall?
