EQUIPMENT

Table of Contents

  • 1 Air Fryer

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Box Twinkies

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper or lightly spray with nonstick cooking oil.
  • Remove cellophane wrappers from Twinkies, and place in the air fryer basket, without stacking.
  • Air fry in batches, at 350 degrees F for 3-5 minutes, until the snack cakes are golden brown. The longer you air fry, the crispier they will become. I like them on the crispier side, so 5 minutes is perfect!

NOTES

To make these more like carnival food vendors, you can place popsicle sticks into Twinkies, making them perfect for kids parties.

For a variation more like your favorite carnival treats,  can also dip into batter made from a pancake batter, or wrap with crescent dough. If using batter or dough, change cooking times to 6-8 minutes.
