Nutella and Strawberry Cupcakes

Well, that’s it folks. The winter coats are coming out and your morning coffee bill is rising steadily which can only lead to one conclusion, autumn has arrived. The weather is starting to change, it’s cold and raining outside; so what else can I do except starting baking something sweet and delicious to lift my mood and make me smile
Don’t get me wrong I love autumn, the changing colors of the leaves, pumpkin flavored everything, Halloween, lots of blankets, hot chocolate, and it was at autumn me and my boyfriend got together, and it just makes me really happy.

So, today I was all day inside because of the rain and I made this delicious Chocolate Cupcakes ! If you want to try a cupcake recipe that is a little more refreshing you can take a look at my Blueberry Cupcakes recipe .
