These Nutella Stuffed Donut Holes are the perfect way to start your day. They're baked right in a muffin tin so you can have delicious homemade donuts any morning of the week!


For the donut holes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅓ cup milk

For the topping and filling:

  • 3 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)


  1. In a large bowl, add all donut hole ingredients and blend with electric mixer until combined, about 2-3 minutes. Lightly grease mini muffin pan with baking spray. Spoon (using a 1Tbsp scoop) into muffin cups and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 13-15 minutes.
  2. Remove from oven and cool about 5-10 minutes in pan. Flip each donut hole onto it's side, as it makes it easier to fill with Nutella. Fill a piping bag with Nutella, and using a tip (I used a size 5 tip), squirt the Nutella into the side of the donut hole, applying enough pressure to see the donut hole expand. Repeat until all donut holes are filled.
  3. Melt butter and place in small bowl. Add sugar to a separate bowl. Drop donut into the butter, roll around. Then drop into sugar, coating generously. Allow to set (about 10 minutes). ENJOY. These are best enjoyed in 24 hours.


  • Enjoy Nutella Donut Holes within 24 hours for best taste.
  • Once cooled, keep the donut holes sealed in an airtight container when you're not eating them.
  • Use a 1 tablespoon scoop to transfer the batter into the pan. This ensures the donut holes are equally sized and bake evenly.
  • Swap out the Nutella for another creamy sweet spread. Biscoff would be heavenly in these donut holes too.
  • These are just as tasty rolled in powdered sugar instead of granulated. Try it both ways!
