Nutella Cupcakes

Mmm...... Nutella.
I have been meaning to make these for a while!
I came across a crunchy chocolate spread by Whole Earth. It tasted like a Ferrero Rocher!

The frosting had normal nutella in.

Nutella Frosting:-
80grams unsalted butter (room temp)
250 grams icing sugar
80 grams nutella
25ml whole milk

1. Beat together butter and icing sugar until well combined
2. Add milk
3. Mix in the nutella and beat until smooth

I started with chocolate cupcakes and then when they were cooled I scooped out a little bit of cupcake and then put in about 2 teaspoons of the crunchy chocolate hazelnut spread.

I then added a little frosting, dusted with cocoa and topped with whole hazelnuts.

I also made some mini versions!

Not the prettiest cupcakes I have ever made but they were delicious!


  1. They were yummy! Mrs G was kind enough to leave me some when I house-sat for her last weekend. The Boy and I devoured them in minutes.
