Chocolate Marshmallow and Peanut Butter Stuffed Donuts

What’s better than chocolate donuts? How about stuffing those beauties with fluff and peanut butter?
This month Sheryl from The Lady Behind the Curtain challenged us to another fun Dessert Challenge!

Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge

We were asked to pair chocolate pudding or cocoa with marshmallow.
I chose chocolate baked donuts for my cocoa part of the challenge and fluff for the marshmallow gooey goodness. I wanted a little crunch and more texture so I added a layer of crunchy peanut butter.
These chocolate cake donuts are moist and easy to make. Slice when completely cooled and spread one side with marshmallow fluff and the other with chunky (or smooth) peanut butter. I used about a tablespoon of each filling for each donut.
