  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus a little extra for yeast activation
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk, warmed to 110°F
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour (additional as needed)
  • 3-4 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • Mini M&Ms, for sprinkling
  • Mini marshmallows, for sprinkling
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff, for filling

Chocolate Sauce:

  • 14 ounces high-quality dark chocolate
  • 1 3/4 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 ounces brown sugar
  • 9 fluid ounces cream


  1. Prepare Yeast: In a small bowl, combine yeast, warm water, and a little sugar. Let sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. Mix Dough Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine yeast mixture, evaporated milk, sugar, melted butter, salt, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Gradually add flour until a soft dough forms.
  3. Knead and Rest: Knead dough until smooth. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Form Donuts: Roll out dough, cut into donut shapes, and let rise slightly.
  5. Fry Donuts: Heat oil to 350°F. Fry donuts until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Make Chocolate Sauce: Melt chocolate with butter, sugar, and cream until smooth.
  7. Assemble: Fill each donut with marshmallow fluff, dip in chocolate sauce, and sprinkle with mini M&Ms and marshmallows.


  • Ensure all ingredients, especially dairy and eggs, are at room temperature for the best results.
  • Be careful not to over-knead the dough to keep the donuts light and fluffy.
  • Allow the chocolate sauce to cool slightly before dipping to ensure a thick, even coating.


Q: Can I make these donuts in advance? A: These donuts are best enjoyed fresh, but you can prepare the dough and chocolate sauce in advance and assemble before serving.

Q: How can I store leftover donuts? A: Store any leftover donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Reheat gently before serving to revive the texture.
