If you’ve been reading our blog, you know all about cupcake corner. That is my personal corner of the blog where I play with all sorts of amazing cupcake recipes. All of our cupcakes are created from scratch with fresh ingredients. I enjoy perusing the internet in search of new ideas. Look what I found this time!
Nutella is all the rage these days. I see it absolutely everywhere! These nummy treats are all over Pinterest. Nutella cookies, Nutella cakes, Nutella toast! You name it; Nutella is in it! I am a lover of that wonderful chocolatey hazelnut spread myself! I’ve hardly met a person that doesn’t enjoy Nutella.
I thought these Chocolate Nutella cupcakes would be perfect to share with family. My husband and I went visiting in Idaho to see his parents. Easy travelers, Chocolate Nutella cupcakes came with us!
These beauties made a very positive impact on my Idaho In-laws. The ones lucky enough to grab a chocolate Nutella cupcake before they were scooped up! Nice to make a good impression!
Decadent Chocolate Nutella cupcakes that are bursting with chocolate and hazelnut flavors.
Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes Recipe Notes:
These decadent cupcakes are fairly simple to make. There are a lot of steps involved. They are not difficult steps. These treats are so worth it!
I cored out the top of these cupcakes and filled them with fresh Nutella spread. Oh yes! That upped the creamy richness factor to the sky! Homemade Nutella buttercream frosting makes another level of delicious, creaminess.
Seriously, if you have a Nutella addiction. I urge you to make these delicious little morsels! The chocolate cake pairs beautifully with the yummy hazelnut flavor of the Nutella frosting. Did you notice those cute chocolate sprinkles?
I recreated the frosting recipe until the consistency and flavor were just right. Nutella is very thick. I recommend adding milk or cream, a tablespoon at a time, to make the frosting thinner. Keep adjusting until you get it just the way you want it. Enjoy!!
