Type of Air Fryer

I made these in my Cosori Air Fryer. You can use any air fryer but keep in mind that all air fryers cook a little differently. Air fryer cooking times vary so use the cooking time as an estimate.

Work In Batches

In most air fryer baskets, you’ll only be able to fit 4 at a time. You need to space them out because they will expand and you don’t want them to get stuck together.


Best eaten right away while they are warm but you can store them in an airtight container for a day or two and reheat in the air fryer.

Recipe Tip

Resist the urge to overstuff them. The Nutella and chocolate will just ooze out and make a mess in the air fryer.
