Caramel Glazed Air Fryer Donuts

Caramel Glazed Air Fryer Donuts

This week's recipe is so quick, you might even already have the ingredients at home and time to make it today! Air Fryer Caramel Glazed Donuts...If you've got one, you HAVE to try these super simple, non-greasy donuts! I've been thinking about turning our caramel sauce into a glaze for a while and when I saw how easy these donuts were to make, I knew this was the time to give it a try. I am already thinking of more recipes to use them on because both varieties are SOOOO good!


  • 2 packages refrigerated biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grand Flakey Layers)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1/2 c cream (or milk), divided
  • 1/4 c Caramel Kitchen salted caramel sauce
  • 1/3 c Caramel Kitchen chocolate caramel sauce


For the donuts:

  1. Program your air fryer to 330 degrees.
  2. Remove the biscuits from the container and lay them out in a single layer.
  3. Using a 1" cutter, remove the center from each biscuit (these will become your donut holes).
  4. Brush or spray a light layer of coconut oil onto the bottom of the air fryer bowl.
  5. Place your whole donuts in a single layer on the bottom of the air fryer bowl. (I like to flip them over once to coat both sides with oil).
  6. Place cover on air fryer and cook for 4 minutes. You may need to flip the donuts over at the 3 minute mark.
  7. Repeat with remaining whole donuts.
  8. To cook the donut wholes, decrease the cook time to 3 minutes.
  9. Remove donuts to a wire rack to cool slightly. (I like to place a layer of wax paper or paper towels beneath the rack in preparation for glazing).

For the salted caramel and chocolate glazes:

  1. Divide the powdered sugar into two separate bowls.
  2. Add 1/4 c of salted caramel sauce to one and 1/3 chocolate caramel sauce to the other.
  3. Pour in 3-4 Tablespoons cream into each bowl and mix until well combined and no lumps remain. Add an additional tablespoon of cream as needed if glaze is too thick.


  1. Dip each donut half way into the bowl of glaze.
  2. Turn right side up and place back on wire rack to allow excess glaze to drip off.
  3. If your donuts are too warm you may need to re-dip your donuts a second time to get a nice thick coating. Allow to set for a few minutes before serving. (I know this was an impossible ask for my kids and husband, they just ended up with stickier fingers).
