  2. While the donuts are cooking make the glaze. In a small to medium size bowl, add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir until the powdered sugar and cocoa powder turn into a thick glaze.
  3. Take the biscuits out of the air fryer and dip into the chocolate glaze. Set them on a cooling rack to set. Enjoy!


If you don’t add any frosting to the top these will taste like plain biscuits.¬†

Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket with biscuits. Will have to cook in batches.
