I love Nutella.  What’s not to love?  Chocolate and hazelnut — just as good as chocolate and peanut butter.  Anyway, I wanted to branch out and try a recipe for Nutella cupcakes

These are easy cupcakes to mix, but I found I had to bake them a bit longer than the recipe said.  When I took them out, they looked great.

I didn’t think they were too heavy on the Nutella flavor so I would definitely recommend topping them with Nutella.  Or, you could put half the dough and then a dollop of Nutella and then top with the remaining dough.  They weren’t too sweet either so the Nutella “frosting” will complement, not overwhelm.  If you’re making them for someone, I’d also add some crushed hazelnut to the top. 

With these changes, I promise these will be crowd-pleasing cupcakes!
