I guess,I have an on-off relationship with Nutella.One time,I avoid this chocolate dip so much for its high calories and fat,and some other time,I badly crave for it like in this case.
I don't like to eat it with bread though,so I searched for a hint of how to enjoy eating nutella with something else until I found this super easy Self-FrostingNutella Cupcakes recipe.
There are many version of Nutella Cupcakes recipes,be it 90% Nutella-contained cupcakes,or in my recipe,I used like 40% of the nutella as the topping to the cakes.
So,check the method below and happy baking,guys!
