Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes




Nutella is a big deal in my house. Give me a spoon and the jar and I would happily send myself in to a chocolate nut food coma.

If you are a choco-holic, Nutella addict, or Ferrero Rocher lover (or all of the above, like me) you will absolutely adore these cupcakes.

Chocolate cupcake with a hazelnut core, chocolate hazelnut buttercream and topped with you guessed it chocolate sprinkles and a whole Ferrero Rocher.

If you make one thing this week, make this it. Your friends and family with thank you for it!
