Nutella Cupcakes topped with Hazelnuts

Nutella is awesome and I love it soo soo much and I always have to control my urge to eat the entire jar of it. So, when I had to prepare some sweets for my fiance office farewell party (this is his new hobby, changing jobs πŸ™‚ ….this is the 3rd in 1 year…hope this will last ); Β I thought what better cupcake recipe should I prepare than a Nutella Cupcakes topped with HazelnutsΒ one :).

So here it is!

Nutella Cupcakes topped with Hazelnuts

Directions :

  1. Grind the hazelnuts in a robot until they are very fine.
  2. Put them in the mixer ball together with the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, bicarbonate soda, salt, software butter and the 2 eggs.
  3. Beat this together for about 30 seconds on a medium speed.
  4. After this, add the milk and the vanilla extract and beat this for about 1 minute.
  5. Then scoop equal amounts in a 12 hall cupcake tin.
  6. Bake them at about 170 C for about 20-22 minutes, until they pass the toothpick test.
  7. Now let’s go to the Nutella buttercream. Put in a mixer ball the butter together with the Nutella and beat them for about 4-5 min on a high speed.
  8. Then add the icing sugar, that we will split into 2 parts and we will beat them very well between each stage.
  9. When the consistency is very thick we need to loosen up with a little bit of milk. Β You don’t have to use all of the milk that I’ve put in the ingredients – just enough make it a nice and silky consistency.
  10. Now it’s time to decorate the cupcakes but not before we make the buttercream, even more, Cutlery by painting the sides of my piping bag with Nutella.
  11. We can now start to decorate them and to finish them up we top them with some lovely roasted hazelnuts.
