Okay. First I must state my disclaimer for this recipe. I wasn’t my favorite of the bunch- but it was the favorite of many of you who tasted it for me. I think it’s because I don’t love the flavor of hazelnuts. But don’t tell anyone. And for those of you who do love hazelnuts and chocolate…..
Nice. Right? A chocolate cupcake stuffed with Nutella, topped with Hazelnut Butter Cream frosting and drizzled with chocolate ganache.
Nutella Cupcakes (NEW)
1 dark chocolate cake mix
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 recipe Hazelnut Butter Cream frosting (below)
1 1/4 cup Nutella spread
Mix together chocolate cake mix, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Scoop into paper liners, filling 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until cake springs back when lightly touched.
Remove from the oven, and cool. Scoop out the top with a knife or small spoon- making room for the Nutella filling. Place 1-2 tbsp. Nutella spread in each cupcake, then place the top of the cupcake back on, firmly pressing into place. The top with your Hazelnut Butter Cream frosting, and drizzle with ganache.
