Air fried Oreos are an easy take on the classic fried Oreos you find at the fair! Oreos are dipped in a sweet batter then air fried and dusted with powdered sugar.
Air Fried Oreos
State fairs and local fairs have become known for more than elephant ears, funnel cake, and extra large corn dogs. These days you can get fried pickles, fried Snickers bars … all kinds of deep fried foods. Typically the food is dipped in a batter and deep fried in hot oil.
A few years ago my family and I discovered the magic of deep fried Oreos at our state fair. We ordered one batch of 5 fried cookies. There are four of us in the family so one person got to have two. Only one person. We all wanted that last fried Oreo, it was so good.
Now we can easily make air fryer Oreos them at home with this easy recipe. The air fryer makes it super easy and efficient to get the perfect fair-like food!
And if you love Oreos like we do, you’re going to want to try our Oreo poke cake.
- 15 Oreo cookies – use regular oreos or double stuff

You may need to do these in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
- Crescent Rolls – you can wrap the cookie in a refrigerator crescent rolls for a flakier crust. Try the crescent roll sheets and cut them to size.
- Pancake Mix – this is a little messy, but you can dip your cookie in pancake mix and fry them
- Double Stuff Oreos – try the double stuff Oreos for more of the creamy filling inside the fried Oreos.
- Mint Oreos – The minty Oreos add a great flavor to this fair food and would especially be fun around the holidays.
- Golden Oreos – if you’re not a big chocolate fan, you can try this with the Golden Oreos
