I’ve been obsessed with Nutella lately. I bought the large tub at costco for a cake order, and it’s been downhill from there lol. Did i mention it’s really good in a little bowl mixed with graham cracker crumbs and melted marshmallows….that’s my latest guilty pleasure snack….omg it’s amazing….hehe.
Anywho, i digress…. leftover nutella. So my college roommate had a baby over the summer (and omg he’s the cutest thing ever!!!). Of course, being me i had to bring over a plethora o baked goodies. In addition to the Baby Boy brownies i made a bunch of assorted cupcakes. And my college roommate is like me, totally italian. So as two italian girls i thought what would be better than a nutella cupcake!!! I also brought over a hunk of fresh mozzarella and prosciutto cause hey you have to have the salty with the sweet.
The nutella cupcake is our regular chocolate cupcake, filled with nutella, vanilla buttercream, and then drizzled with more nutella and hazelnuts. I think next time i would mix some of the nutella in with the buttercream as well, but it was still delicious. It also got 2 thumbs up from the new parents! They were a hit at the middle of the night feedings (for the new parents lol). Oh the wonders of nutella! There will be so more of these to come! And more nutella treats!
