Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

3. Mix in the egg, vanilla, melted butter, sour cream and milk until it’s all combined.

4. Transfer the batter into a pastry bag or a plastic bag with the tip trimmed off.

5. Grease a donut pan, then fill the donut pans until 2/3 full of batter.

6. Bake donuts for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for about five minutes on a cooling rack.

7. Put the crushed graham crackers in a bowl that’s wider than the donuts.

8. When the donuts are mostly cool, spread a thick layer of marshmallow creme on top of each donut. Dip the donut into the graham cracker crumbs. Top with mini marshmallows and chocolate syrup!

Don’t overfill the pan or the donuts will not be the right shape.

Let the donuts cool, but don’t let them get too cold. The warmth makes it easier to spread the marshmallow creme :)

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs or dip it into a bowl of crumbs to get that extra graham cracker flavor.

What’s great about these donuts is that they get better overnight! Feel free to make them the night before for extra chocolate flavor the next day.
