Make These 3-Ingredient Fried Oreos Using the Air Fryer!
If you’ve got an air fryer & about 4 minutes, make some fried Oreos! 🤤
Fried Oreos are a popular state fair snack that is so simple and fun to make at home using the air fryer for convenience instead of heating up oil on the stove. Older kids can even make 3-ingredient air fryer Oreos by themselves as a quick treat idea.
The result is a softened, warm chocolate Oreo surrounded by a perfectly flaky sweet dough that’s honestly so unexpectedly delicious!
When my daughter showed this idea to me after having seen it on TikTok, I was a little skeptical that it wouldn’t work out as well as frying in oil. However, we surprisingly loved this air-fried Oreo treat, and they are so easy to make too! This recipe hack actually reminded me of the 5-minute air fryer donut recipe we have featured in the past.
Tips for making the best fried Oreos in the air fryer:
- Don’t skip the part about greasing the inner air fryer pan to avoid any sticking. I brushed mine with butter first.
- I placed the cookies with the seam facing down and they turned out perfect. Just make sure the dough completely covers the cookie.
- Cook times could vary slightly. 4 minutes worked perfectly on my machine, and I do not preheat my air fryer.

Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say about fried Oreos:
“I can say with certainty I will make these again… and often! They’re so easy to throw together with just 3 ingredients I often have on hand! It takes a minute or two of prep and you’ve got a dessert the whole family will love! We are big Oreo fans in this house and this recipe takes Oreos to the next level! Grab a glass of milk and dig in!
P.S. My 9-year-old would like me to tell you all that these are great with Hershey’s syrup drizzled on top! 😂“
