Thank You, Dwyane Wade, For Showing Us All How to Make Deep-Fried Red Velvet Oreos

If you're currently reading this while standing in front of an open fridge and trying to decide what to snack on next (aka my routine 10 times a day), I'd like to direct your attention to Dwyane Wade's Instagram account. In a post on Wednesday, Dwyane shared a video of himself cooking up a treat so indulgent that I need a glass of milk just looking at it: deep-fried, red velvet Double Stuf Oreos. (In the caption, Dwayne joked that sweets are his worst enemy.)

The recipe begins by creating a red velvet cake batter from scratch, which includes combining the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Once the red velvet cake batter is made, dip your Double Stuf Oreos into the mixture until fully coated. Next, deep-fry each Oreo for about one minute or until the bubbles around the edge of the cookie start to disappear. Gabrielle and the rest of the family definitely have a delicious dessert to look forward to. See Dwyane's full video here and try the recipe for yourself.
