Air Fryer Donuts or Fried Oreos?

If you read my last post, you know I attempted making Krispy Kreme-ish donuts in my air fryer…. and that I failed. Miserably. They were disgusting. I’m not sure how any donut could be inedible, but sadly these were.

I vowed to try again. Maybe it was the recipe I was using, or maybe my yeast was dead, or maybe the powdered sugar had expired. So the next day I went to the store and bought new yeast and powdered sugar and got home and thought, “I don’t even really like donuts all that much” and “will the outcome be worth the effort”? Ultimately I decided . . .


But I really wanted to make something sweet in my airfryer, and decided on something SUPER easy and foolproof that ended up taking a total of about 15 minutes from start to finish.

STATE FAIR-ISH DEEP FRIED OREOS (without the deep frying)!

Just four ingredients and you’re ready to go!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED (makes 10 servings):

  • Oreos
  • 1 package of crescent roll dough
  • Powdered Sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp unsalted butter (melted or very soft)

Have you ever noticed that there’s only one “f” in Double Stuf Oreos? I never noticed it until I inserted the above photo, and was naturally compelled to find out why. From my 1 minute research, this is because “Double Stuff” is trademarked by a bedding company. You can use that trivia to impress your friends at work, you’re welcome.


Tear off a portion of the crescent roll and wrap around an Oreo. I tried to tear off any extra as you really don’t need an entire piece of the dough to completely cover the Oreo. I was able to make 10 fried Oreos from the 8 crescent roll portions.

the dough is stretchy – just pull it around your Oreo and pinch it together and smooth out
Here’s the Oreo all tucked inside the dough

Once you’ve got all your Oreos encapsulated in dough, spread a bit of the butter on each side and place in the air fryer in a single layer.

Each air fryer will differ slightly, but I cooked mine at 350 for 6 minutes. Your Oreos should be golden brown when they are done. Take them out and place on a wire rack, let them cool for a couple minutes, and then sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar. I let mine sit for about 5- 10 minutes. They are best eaten warm.

the finished product

Couldn’t eat them all in one sitting? They still taste great the next day (ask my husband who took them to work as his breakfast). I’d suggest microwaving for about 15 seconds first though.

Hope you enjoyed making and eating these! So much easier than a homemade donut (seriously, save yourself the headache and just go to to Dunkin’ if you want a donut). But you do not need to go to your state fair to get a fried Oreo now!
