This recipe is so awesome because you can enjoy the taste of deep fried candy that you would find at the fair or rodeo, but for half the cost and no mess of deep frying! It is so easy to air fry any chocolate candy.

Step 1. Freeze the candy

Place the candy you are using in the freezer for about 15-30 minutes or so. This will help it not get too melty once it cooks in the hot air fryer.

Step 2. Prepare the crescent dough

There are multiple ways you can wrap the candy in crescent dough, here is my favorite way.

Roll out the crescent roll dough, then cut it in half.

Step 3. Wrap the candy

Place the candy morsels on one half of the crescent roll dough. I was able to place about 9 candies, evenly spaced, on the crescent dough. Then, take the other half of the dough and place it directly on top of candies.

Step 4. Cut and pinch

Take a pizza cutter and cut out 9 squares around the candy morsels (or however many candies you put down). Once cut, pinch together the sides of the dough together

Step 5. Air fry

Place the wrapped candies in the air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes at 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C, or until the crescent dough is cooked and golden to your liking.

Note: You may need to cook in batches, depending on how big your air fryer basket is and how big your candy morsels are.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get crescent dough?

I get my Pillsbury crescent dough at my local grocery store. It is normally located in a refrigerated section of the store.

If you don’t have the Pillsbury brand located at your local store, you can get any brand of crescent roll dough.

While I haven’t tried this personally, I also imagine that these doughs will work to air fry candy.

  • Puff pastry sheets
  • Pie crust
  • Biscuit dough
  • Pizza dough

Note: the flavor profile and cooking time may change depending on what type of dough you use.

Can I air fry a full size candy bar?

I haven’t personally tried this recipe with a full size candy bar. I imagine that it will work better in the air fryer if you did candy bar bites or if you cut the candy bar in half. Cooking time may also be a couple minutes longer because you are cooking a bigger sized candy.

Can I make this recipe in the oven?

Don’t want to use your air fryer and make this recipe in batches? You can use your oven to fry candy! This is another better option than deep frying because little oil is required!
