8 Most Irresistible Air Fryer Desserts Ideas  (Must Try!)
I’m about to blow your mind if you didn’t know the air fryer could bake.
Everything from fried Oreos to donuts and even churros can be made!
If you enjoy desserts or other sweets, these air fryer desserts are just what you need. I’ve compiled a list of 8 air fryer desserts to enjoy after dinner or as a special treat.
THINGS TO KNOW WHEN MAKING AIR FRYER DESSERTS
- In your air fryer, you can use anything that is oven-safe! This means that silicone cupcake cups, small round cake pans, ramekins, and other similar items can all be used in your air fryer.
- You cannot simply adapt an oven recipe for the air fryer. Most recipes should be reduced by 25 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit to account for a shorter cook time.
- Desserts that have been wet-battered are not ideal for an air fryer. It is best to use something with a more solid outside (see air fried Oreos below for an example).
- Use a parchment paper round when baking something with a softer batter, such as cookies. This prevents cookies from forming in the basket or mesh tray’s holes.
AIR FRIED OREOS WITH CRESCENT ROLLS
At the fair, my personal favorite dessert is deep-fried Oreos. They’re light, fluffy, and chocolatey. Until I discovered how to make Air Fried Oreos, I thought they were a delicacy because they were fried.
AIR FRYER CAKE
You’ll have a moist, delicious cake in less time than it takes to bake in the oven with this air fryer cake recipe. Simply top with your favorite frosting, slice, and enjoy!
This decadent and rich chocolate air fryer cake is a prime example! The best part is that it takes less time than traditional baking and does not require you to turn on the oven and heat up your entire kitchen. It’s especially refreshing during the hot summer months!
AIR FRYER JELLY DONUTS
With an air fryer, having a huge sweet tooth is never a problem. While you can prepare healthy foods such as grilled chicken breasts and carrots, you can also enjoy some extremely sweet desserts such as these air fryer jelly donuts.
AIR FRYER LAVA CAKES
Chocolate cake filled with warm, gooey hazelnut-and-chocolate lava is a dessert you’ll want to make again and again. The best part is that these air fryer lava cakes only take about 20 minutes to make from start to finish!
Have you ever ordered a lava cake from a fine dining establishment? A perfectly soft chocolate cake with a molten center is always a delight and feels like a truly special dessert.
AIR FRYER APPLES
Cut into wedges, these Air Fryer Apples are coated in cinnamon sugar and graham crackers for a sweet and easy dessert. You’ll fall in love with this sweet cinnamon sugar dessert whether you call it apple fries, wedges, slices, or simply air fryer apples.
AIR FRYER PUMPKIN PIE TWISTS
It’s officially pumpkin season, and I’m a sucker for all things autumnal. I’m a sucker for pumpkin patches, hayrides, corn mazes, and the list goes on. That’s why I had to make these air fryer pumpkin pie twists as a seasonal dessert. They’re made with Pillsbury crescent rolls, which makes them quick to make and delicious to eat.
AIR FRYER CHURROS
These air fryer churros are a delicious and simple dessert! For a delicious Mexican treat, sweet dough is air fried and coated in cinnamon sugar. For a tasty snack, dip your churros in chocolate or caramel. Churros are a popular fried Mexican dessert that can be dipped in chocolate sauce and eaten as a snack!
AIR FRYER S’MORES
This is not only brilliant, but it is also clean. You’ll still get gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate, but it’ll all be in one neat little package.
After just a few minutes, the marshmallow will begin to turn a beautiful golden color. When you put the chocolate on top, the residual heat will melt it perfectly.Print

Preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes at 350°F.
Unroll the crescent rolls and separate them, then place an Oreo on the wider end of each piece of dough.
Wrap the dough around the Oreo and press to seal it.
Spray the air fryer basket with coconut oil or olive oil, or brush vegetable oil on the bottom of the basket with a pastry brush.
Place the crescent-wrapped Oreos in the basket about an inch apart and bake for 4 to 5 minutes at 350°F.

A dusting of powdered sugar is a must! You can leave it out, but I strongly advise you to use it. You could also make a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle over these.
