We can set negative value to distance attribute within dataLabels, which will show text inside the slice

plotOptions: {
        pie: {
            dataLabels: {
                distance: -30
            }
        }
}

Output :

Pie chart distance attribute

Here is the jsfiddle for this and code to show datalabels inside and outside.

To achieve this

  1. you need to give two pie chart series. one will be looking at front and other will be at back.
  2. if you want to simulate it then make changes into size: '80%'.
  3. distance : use of distance is to show datalabels in and out which you can change according to you which you want position of it.
  4. allowPointSelect: default value of this is false but if this is used then pie chart resides behind will be shown upon clicking on slice of front pie chart.

Code:

 var asset_allocation_pie_chart = new Highcharts.Chart({
        chart: {
            renderTo: 'asset_allocation_bottom_left_div'
        },
        title: {
            text: 'Current Asset Allocation',
            style: {
                fontSize: '17px',
                color: 'red',
                fontWeight: 'bold',
                fontFamily: 'Verdana'
            }
        },
        subtitle: {
            text: '(As of ' + 'dfdf' + ')',
            style: {
                fontSize: '15px',
                color: 'red',
                fontFamily: 'Verdana',
                marginBottom: '10px'
            },
            y: 40
        },
        tooltip: {
            pointFormat: '{series.name}: <b>{point.percentage}%</b>',
            percentageDecimals: 0
        },
        plotOptions: {
