Deep Fried Oreos

A few weekends ago we went camping with my future brother in law & his family.  We had 5 kids under the age of 9, which can be a bit of a challenge.  Lucky for us, we were only about 45 minutes from home. Kids these days aren't always "thrilled" to be in the great outdoors.  As a kid, my parents took us camping all the time.  We always found ways to occupy ourselves, even if we didn't want to.  Our next camping adventure, I will be sure to come up with some ideas for the kiddos.

My future BIL brought his deep fryer, he is an avid outdoors man so he has all kinds of camping gadgets.
Well, I heard deep fryer & thought.....DEEP FRIED OREOS!!! 

Yes, that is excatly what every bride to be should be thinking about, LOL! So I grabbed the rest of the pancake batter & a few packs of Oreos and hoped this would be doable.  Not only were they doable...they were down right delicious!

I simply made batter & to be honest, I had no idea how much batter was there, I just added water.

Then we dipped the Oreo cookies into the batter

Then put them in the deep fryer at 300 degrees for about 2-4 minutes.  
*Note---Make sure you put them in one at a time.

They are done when they are golden brown. 
All we were missing was the powdered sugar!

Next time you have some fresh oil in the deep fryer try these out. 
An easy crowd pleaser for sure!
