Heavenly Nutella Bombs Cooked to Perfection in the Air Fryer

Ingredients & Substitutions

  1. Biscuits: Opt for Pillsbury Grand Biscuits (non-flaky variety). Alternatively, explore the delicious possibilities with pie crust dough, puff pastry dough (without the cinnamon), or crescent roll dough. Adjust cooking times accordingly if using a different kind of dough.
  2. Nutella: The star ingredient, Nutella, is a delectable chocolate-hazelnut spread. Known for its creamy texture and rich flavor, it adds a luxurious touch to these bombs.
  3. Butter: Enhance the taste by brushing the Nutella bombs with melted butter before air frying. While cooking spray is an option, butter is recommended for a superior flavor.
  4. Confectioners’ Sugar: Elevate the sweetness with a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar over the cooled Nutella bombs.

How To Store Nutella Bombs

Allow the Nutella bombs to cool completely before storing them in a single layer within an airtight container. Enjoy these treats at room temperature for 2-3 days.

Can I Freeze Air Fryer Nutella Bombs?

Certainly! To freeze Nutella bombs, arrange them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid (1-2 hours). Once frozen, transfer the bombs to a freezer-safe bag for storage, preserving their deliciousness for up to 2 months.
