🔪 How to Make Reese’s Stuffed Donuts
Making these donuts is so quick and easy. There’s really nothing to them.
Step 1: Prep
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Cut Puff Pastry Circles
Unfold thawed puff pastry sheets on a floured surface and cut out 18 circles using a round cookie cutter.
Step 3: Brush with Egg Wash
Mix water and egg in a small bowl and brush the bottom circle of each puff pastry.
Step 4: Stuff with Reese’s
Place a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup in the center of 9 of the egg washed circles. Then, top with the remaining 9 circles. Use a fork to crimp both circles together and seal the dough.
Step 5: Bake
Bake for 13 minutes or until golden brown. Then, remove the donuts from the oven and let them cool.
Step 6: Top with Chocolate and More Reese’s
Smother the tops of the donuts with chocolate sauce, add chocolate sprinkles, and finish with chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
There are two reasons that puff pastry doesn’t rise. First, if your pastry isn’t cold, the fat in the dough won’t melt correctly, and the pastry will have a lackluster rise. Second, if your oven is less than 400 degrees, the fat and liquid in the dough won’t be able to create the amount of steam necessary for the dough to rise.
Puff pastry is a dough made from alternating thin layers of butter and dough. This unique dough construction is what causes it to puff up and have visible flaky layers.
If the top and bottom of your donuts separated, you didn’t crimp them enough before baking. Be sure your edges are thoroughly sealed.
