nutella heaven

hey friends! i’m in chicago enjoying my time with my college friends, but i wanted to pop in and share these crazy delicious cupcakes i made on thursday night!

i don’t think i mentioned it on the blog, but i went to costco on wednesday afternoon and grabbed a twin pack of nutella. so of course i have to use it in whatever i possibly can! đŸ™‚

i found this recipe for 4 ingredient nutella cupcakes from cake or death?. and it actually is only 3 ingredients because hazelnuts are for garnish – and i didn’t have any hazelnuts so i didn’t use them!

i doubled the recipe because i don’t have a mini muffin pan and the recipe was for mini muffins. i made 7 regular-sized cupcakes so i had to bake it longer than the recipe called for. i think i ended up baking them for about 25 minutes.

and the verdict?

well 3 cupcakes were gone in approximately 5 minutes. the boys loved them and liz and i shared one! they’re so delicious.

this recipe is super easy too. this is exactly the kind of dessert i imagine making when i find out last minute that i have to bring a treat to a potluck or to my kids’ school or something!


have you ever baked with nutella?

i found lots of other recipes including this pie from savvy julie that i can’t wait to try! none were quite as simple as these cupcakes though.

  1. One of my sons is crazy for Nutella. I’ve never tried baking with it. I’ll have to give it a try.

  2. I pretty much eat nutella straight out of the jar. Which…. is why we don’t buy it often. It tastes like chocolate frosting. I will definitely have to try this recipe!

  3. I’ve never baked with nutella but you’re the second person who posted a recipe with nutella today!

    I’ve never bought nutella before. I know people love it, but I’ve never been a huge fan of hazelnut. Maybe I need to give it a chance. Or maybe it’s so good that I should stay unaddicted. Glad you are having a fun weekend.

  5. Uggggh, nutella is the devil!! đŸ™‚ I bought a jar a few weeks ago and I did the same, put it on everything!

  6. I don’t know if I can forgive you for sharing this recipe! Those cupcakes look amazing!
