For the Donut Dough:

1/2 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
1 cup pastry cream (homemade or store-bought)
For the Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk

1. Prepare the Donut Dough:

In a small bowl, combine the warm milk and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the mixture, stir, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, melted butter, eggs, flour, and salt. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it becomes smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.
2. Shape and Fill the Donuts:

Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/2-inch thickness. Use a round cutter to cut out donut shapes.
Place a teaspoon of your preferred filling (jam, chocolate hazelnut spread, or pastry cream) in the center of half of the donut shapes.
Top each filled donut with another donut shape and press the edges to seal, creating stuffed donuts.
