This state fair and carnival favorite, deep-fried Oreos, just got an upgrade. Delicious Air Fryer Oreos are a simple dessert you can make in minutes and only hot air (no hot oil) is needed!
This is one of the first air fryer recipe desserts I made using one of my favorite sweet tooth treats, regular Oreo cookies.
These delicious treats are an easy dessert for the entire family plus they look darn pretty cute and there is no deep frying needed so there are less calories, no guilt, and less mess!

See printable recipe card for quantities and details.
Follow these simple steps for delicious sweet treat success!
Open crescent rolls tube.
Place crescent roll sheets on cutting board, flat surface, or silicone baking mat.
Roll out dough pressing down the perforated edges as you go to form one large pastry sheet.
Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut dough into 8 equal squares.
Place a whole cookie in the center of each dough square folding up the dough to completely cover the cookie.
Press down the edges.
Spray the basket of the air fryer with cooking spray or cover with parchment paper.
Place croissant dough-wrapped Oreo cookies in a single layer in air fryer basket or air fryer rack and cook at 320 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes until a nice golden brown.
Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to make these tasty snacks in two separate batches.
Remove from air fryer and lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Allow the wrapped oreos to cool slightly and enjoy your tasty treats!
Hint: Using a pizza cutter is a great way to cut the flaky dough without any pulling or dragging.
This is where you can really have some fun with this easy air fryer recipe.
Here are a few ideas to get you started - you aren't limited to regular Oreos!
- Golden Oreos, Peanut Butter Oreos, Double Stuff Oreos, or any other specialty flavor of Oreo you prefer.
- Before serving try topping these air fryer deep fried Oreos with ice cream and chocolate sauce or caramel syrup.
There's very little equipment necessary to make this recipe. First, you need an air fryer. I have two that I can recommend at this time since I have used them both. My first recommendation is the PowerXL Air Fryer.
I have an older model than the one linked above but it always cooks to perfection!
My second recommendation is the Cosori Air Fryer which is a bit sturdier, in my opinion, than the PowerXl though both are great options.
Store air-fried Oreos in an airtight container, or Ziplock bag, for up to 36 hours. If you won't be eating them all by this point in time, freeze them for up to 3 months.
Allow these to cool before eating as the cream in the center can be pretty hot and you don't want to burn your mouth or lips.
