  • 1-4 sweet potatoes scrubbed clean and patted dry
  • 1 teaspoon oil

Hot Honey Butter

  • 4 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Coat sweet potatoes with oil and place in the air fryer basket.
  • Cook on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft on the inside.

Hot Honey Butter

  • While your sweet potatoes are cooking, combine butter, honey, hot sauce, and salt in a bowl and whisk vigorously until combined and smooth. 
  • Cut open your sweet potato, fluff the insides a little, and then top it with this butter.


  • I use Texas Pete or Frank’s Hot Sauce for my hot honey butter.
  • You can make 1-4 sweet potatoes at a time, depending on your air fryer basket. Just make sure the sweet potatoes aren’t overlapping so proper air circulation can cook them properly. 
  • The cook time suggested is for medium-sized sweet potatoes. Smaller sweet potatoes will need less time while large potatoes will need more. For smaller potatoes, I start to check with a toothpick around 25 minutes.
