Nutella. It's pretty much my favorite thing in the world. Hazelnut and chocolate...um, yeah. Amazing. Fill some chocolate cupcakes with it and add some super creamy Nutella buttercream and it's pretty much game over.
These cupcakes require two full jars of Nutella, so be sure to stock up before making these. And use the name brand stuff -- trust me, you can taste the difference.
People always ask me about these baking cups -- they're Wilton's Black Wave Standard Baking Cups. I love using these because they add some visual interest to standard cupcakes and don't fade in the oven. They kind of "frame" the light chocolate buttercream draw attention to the simple hazelnut garnish.
