Nutella Cupcakes

These cupcakes are one of a kind. Indulge in a mixture of chocolate, almonds, peanuts and most importantly, Nutella!

What you’ll need: 

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp. chocolate hazelnut spread, divided
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 container chocolate frosting
  • 3 Tbsp. almonds
  • 3 Tbsp. peanuts
  • 3 Tbsp. white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl, mix cake mix, water, oil, eggs and vanilla. Place hazelnut spread in a bowl and microwave for 15 seconds. Drop 2 tablespoons into the prepared cake mix and gently stir.

Fill muffin tins lined with cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter. Sprinkle half of the chocolate chips over top. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the oven, allow them to cool. Transfer cooled cupcakes to a wire rack.

In a small bowl, stir together frosting and remaining hazelnut spread; spread overtop cupcakes. Place the rest of the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, almonds, peanuts and cocoa powder in a food processor. Process until it’s a crumb texture. Sprinkle mixture over the frosting.
