I’ve never heard heard of Flamings Wings‘ apparently much-revered Wicked Oreos before I posted these photos to my Facebook last week and my officemates started asking me how I made them (one officemate went to Flaming Wings the next day because she craved for their Wicked Oreos after seeing my version). Truth is, K and I just saw Ann Ward in America’s Next Top Model make these, thought they sounded yummy, and forgot about it. It wasn’t until we got a free dessert platter from The Old Spaghetti House that included three of these that I remembered we wanted to try it out.
BTW, if you ever eat at TOSH and your bill amounted to at least a thousand pesos, you qualify for a free dessert platter. Ask your waiter for a survey sheet, answer the form, and you’ll get a platter with three kinds of desserts (one of them was fried cookies!) for free.
I shallow-fried these because I found it harder to deep-fry. It’s harder to control the temperature and honestly, it bothers me when the cookies are not perfectly round . I think these look nicer so I stuck with shallow frying when I made them for the second time.
These are pretty easy to make (30 minutes, tops!). The pancake batter I buy comes with it’s own sachet of chocolate syrup, but you can try sprinkling it with cocoa powder and candy sprinkles and top with off with a scoop of ice cream (we didn’t have any since we were just trying it out, but our next batch will definitely come with a scoop!)
