Air Fryer, Homemade Chocolate Glazed Donuts (Ready in 5 Minutes)

I love Air Fryer Hacks, this one is no different. You get great warm donuts with a chocolate glaze or frosting on top. This is one of my family’s favorites and the whole recipe takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. They are best eaten warm. 


  • 1 can refrigerator dough biscuits

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Start by preparing the biscuit dough for the air fryer.
  2. Use a biscuit cutter and cut out the middle. You can use these later to make mini donuts.
  3. Spray your air fryer basket with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Place your biscuit dough (I needed to do it in 2 batches, as you don’t want them crowded)
  5. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F, for 5 minutes.
  6. After 5 minutes, remove the biscuits, place on a cutting board, and place the second batch in the air fryer basket
  7. Meanwhile in a small mixing bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, unsweetened baking cocoa, butter (melted), vanilla, and milk. Mix well, until everything is well blended.
  8. Wait a few minutes, until the donuts are cooled, and then spread the chocolate frosting on the donuts.
  9. Plate, serve, and enjoy!
