The Hot Stuff

It's time to fry! Make sure your oil is pre-heated to 190 degrees celcius (375 degrees fahrenheit). Use a thermometer if you're not using a fryer.

Using tongs (not your hands!), carefully plunge your Oreos into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd the pan, it will cause the temperature to go down and you will end up with a greasy ugly dessert (no one wants a greasy ugly dessert). The cookies will want to sink to the bottom of the fryer and stick. Don't let this happen! Coax them off the bottom with your tongs (not your hands!) as soon as you can. After you get their lazy selves up off the bottom they will happily bob along in the oil for the rest of the cooking process. As they fry, flip them over a few times so they will evenly brown. They are ready when they start to get golden. This takes anywhere from 3 - 4 minutes.

Remove the Oreos from the hot oil carefully with your tongs (not your hands!) and place on a rack over top of some paper towels to drain briefly (a few seconds will do). Yes, you can eat them now, but why not take them to the next level?
