Funnel Cake Batter
A bag of regular Oreo cookies (Double stuffed, if you dare)
Step 1: In a deep pot, heat enough oil to fully submerge an Oreo cookie.
Step 2: While waiting for the oil to heat, make the funnel cake batter according to the directions on the box. or pail.
Step 3: Before coating the cookies, make sure the oil is has reached the right temperature. I usually do a quick test by dropping dollop of batter into the oil. If it browns too quickly, it’s too hot and if it sinks to the bottom with no bubbles, the oil is not quite ready.
You’ll know the oil is ready when you see bubbles and the test batter floats to the top after a few seconds, showing a golden brown color. Fish it out quick! It’ll continue to cook for a few more minutes out of the pot.
Step 4: Dunk the Oreo into the batter and give it a good coating.
Step 5: Immediately after the dunking, gently drop the cookie into the oil. Be careful of oil spatters! I would only do 3-4 cookies at a time since they do cook fast. The batter usually takes only 3 minutes to fry.
Step 6: When the batter looks golden brown, use a slotted spoon to scoop it out and place on a paper towel-lined plate.
