We have had deep fried Reese’s at the county fair before, but I never realized how easy (and delicious) it could be to make a similar version at home.
Who would have thought you can make yummy dessert recipes in your air fryer? It is a total game-changer! While we love our oh so delicious Fried Macaroni and Cheese Bites made in the air fryer, these delicious Reese’s pastries are over the top delicious!
But, before we get to the recipe AND if you absolutely love Reese’s, then be sure and check out our easy Reese’s Pieces Roll Ups! This recipe is made in your oven (but can be adapted for the air fryer). It’s super yummy and only takes two ingredients, Crescent Rolls and Reese’s Pieces. This easy recipe also gives you an easy and delicious gooey dessert. YUM!
How to Choose an Air Fryer:
If you haven’t yet purchased a hot air fryer, I recommend doing a bit of research as to which one to choose.
There are differences as to the quantity you can cook at once, how much counter space is needed for the airfryer, control panel options and, of course, price.
One of the most highly rated air fryers is the Ninja Air Fryer. It holds up well when comparing the food it cooks to traditionally deep-fried foods and it has a 4-quart ceramic-coated basket.
I have the PowerXL Vortex Air Fryer. I like that it cooks evenly, is easy to use AND easy to clean.
Also, I LOVE the bright red color! (It’s also available in black if red isn’t your thing.)
When you choose your air fryer, think about everything you want to cook in it. Consider the features and size you need, then read reviews on the model you’re considering before making your final purchase decision.

What size reeses do you use in this recipe?
We used the “snack size” which are .55 oz each, which are a bit smaller than the cups that come in the 2-packs as those are .75 oz each. That larger size will still fit in the crescent rolls and just be more filled.

Those look so good!

I just made them and my oldest daughter’s first words to them was, “OMG!!!” and my middle daughter said they were a 10 out of 10. They are VERY sweet but good. The store was out of regular crescent rolls so I didn’t know how it would taste using the butter flavored ones but they even taste amazing…. I also used the regular sized peanut butter cups and it all worked out good and the taste was amazing!
Oh, yay!! So glad to hear you all loved them!
These look like the perfect treat to have when I’m craving something sweet! Yum!

Definetly making these. Husband favorite candy!
Can these be done in an oven ?
You could definitely try that, but they would not get as crispy as in an air fryer. If you have a convection feature on your oven, I would try that.
All I have on hand are the individually wrapped small ones. Wonder if I could use those and just cut down the crescent roll (maybe cut in half and roll two candies for each crescent) and lower the time. Do you think it would still get the dough done and browned and not have a gooey mess? Thank you!! 😊
I would probably try to just put in two of the smaller size in each crescent. Try to make just one or two first and see how it goes and then add in extra Reese’s or try your idea of cutting the rolls into smaller portions. Good luck!
