Air Fried Sugared Dough Dippers with Chocolate Amaretto Sauce

  • Prep Time: 25 m
  • Cook Time: 16 m
  • Total Time: 41 m
  • Servings:


  • 1 pound bread dough defrosted
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 12 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur or almond extract


  1. Roll the dough into two 15-inch logs. Cut each log into 20 slices. Cut each slice in half and twist the dough halves together 3 to 4 times. Place the twisted dough on a cookie sheet, brush with melted butter and sprinkle sugar over the dough twists.
  2. Pre-heat the air fryer to 350ºF.
  3. Brush the bottom of the air fryer basket with melted butter. Air-fry the dough twists in batches. Place 8 to 12 (depending on the size of your air fryer) in the air fryer basket.
  4. Air-fry for 5 minutes. Turn the dough strips over and brush the other side with butter. Air-fry for an additional 3 minutes.
  5. While dough is cooking, make the chocolate amaretto sauce. Bring the heavy cream to a simmer over medium heat. Place the chocolate chips in a large bowl and pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips. Stir until the chocolate starts to melt. Then switch to a wire whisk and whisk until the chocolate is completely melted and the sauce is smooth. Stir in the Amaretto. Transfer to a serving dish.
  6. As the batches of dough twists are complete, place them into a shallow dish. Brush with melted butter and generously coat with sugar, shaking the dish to cover both sides.
  7. Serve the sugared dough dippers with the warm chocolate Amaretto sauce on the side.

  1. Is it possible to make this in conventional oven? Have not made air fryer plunge yet? Thanks. Love all your recipes and use them often l

    1. You could try them in a hot oven. Bake them on a rack on a sheet so that air can circulate around them and flip them over halfway through. I would extend the time a little.

  2. Are you supposed to brush with butter and sugar after they’re air fried as well? This seems unclear in the recipe. It is mentioned before and after air frying.

    1. Hi ML, yes – brush the dough dippers with butter and sugar before air frying. The butter and sugar beforehand help with browning as the dough cooks. Then, brush and dust with sugar again for the crusty exterior and sweet flavor.
