How to Make Red Velvet Fried Oreos?
I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to try, and when I came across this Red Velvet Fried Oreos recipe, I knew I had to give it a go. Before you start preparing them, have in mind a few essential tips for creating these fantastic treats that will impress every single person.
First, it’s essential to make sure your oil is at the correct temperature for frying. Too hot and your Oreos will burn, and too cold and they won’t fry up properly.
Secondly, make sure to evenly coat the Oreos with the batter so they fry up nicely and then let any excess batter drip off before dropping them in the oil so they don’t get too greasy.
And don’t overcrowd your pan: fry up four or five at a time, so each gets enough space to crisp up properly without sticking together.
These are the ingredients you will need:
- 20 Oreos
- 1 ¼ cups Red Velvet Cake mix – I used Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 egg
- Vegetable oil for frying
Now, these are a couple of easy steps anyone can take and make these super attractive and delicious Oreos:
Step 1: Preparing Cake Mix and Oil For Frying
Combine cake mix with the remaining ingredients – oil, milk, and egg – and leave it for 15 minutes for everything to blend nicely. The mixture will gain a thicker, foamy texture so it will be easier to work with.
Pour the oil into a frying pan to heat up on medium heat. Make sure to be at least a finger deep so Oreos can float in it. Also, the oil shouldn’t be too hot so you don’t burn the Oreos.
Step 2: Frying the Oreos
Dip each Oreo cookie in the batter and carefully place them into the heated oil. Fry them on each side for 30 seconds, then put them on a paper towel to soak the extra grease. Serve them with a side of vanilla bourbon ice cream or whipped cream.
How to Store Red Velvet Fried Oreos?
To store Red Velvet Fried Oreos, I recommend keeping them in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge. They’ll stay fresh for up to 2 days this way.
One thing to note is that you’ll need to let them cool completely before storing them in an airtight container. Otherwise, the sugar will start to melt, and the cookies will lose their crispy coating.
