I love anything Oreo. Oreo pie, brownies, and fluff are all common desserts at my house and my family can’t get enough! Whenever I go to a fair I have to indulge a little and get myself a deep-fried Oreo. The layers of fluffy batter and crumbly cookie are just too good! I got so excited when I realized that you could recreate them with just a few simple ingredients at home.

Tips and Tricks
This air fryer fried Oreo recipe is a game-changer. So easy and out-of-this-world delicious! Here are a couple of easy ways you can customize and perfect these tasty treats!
- Cook a Single Layer at a Time: I know I may sound like a broken record, but this is a super important thing to keep in mind when you make anything in the air fryer! Only cook a single layer at a time and be sure there’s plenty of space in between your air fryer Oreos. If there’s not enough airflow between them, your crescent rolls won’t cook properly. This could leave you with soggy dough.
- Sweet Dips: For a little extra indulgence, serve your air fryer Oreos with chocolate or caramel sauce for dipping! You can also drizzle it on top for a photo-worthy finish.
Can You Store Leftover Air Fryer Oreos?
I don’t recommend it, this is a dessert that is best served fresh for that soft and fluffy effect. But if you end up having leftovers, they can be stored for a day or two after cooking.
- In the Refrigerator: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
- Reheating: To reheat your fried Oreos, pop them in the air fryer for a minute or two at 350 degrees F.
