Today is National Nutella Day and there was no way I could have missed this opportunity of sharing another Nutella treat with you.

Nutella infused cupcakes with Nutella frosting! Prepare yourself for a truly irresistible Nutella deliciousness.

Who am I kidding, I’m pretty sure almost all of you like Nutella and even if you admit it or not, at least one time you ate it straight from the jar (OK, I did it multiple times, I admit). It’s a pantry sample, just like peanut butter, chocolate and sprinkles. Who can live without them?

I have to say I was tempted to add some sprinkles on top on the frosting, but, you see, I’m a little clumsy and after making the Nutella Truffles somehow I managed to drop the bowl from the counter and there were a gazillion of sprinkles on the floor. I’m pretty sure I’ll still find some in a month. They hide everywhere.

With or without sprinkles these are a must make cupcakes for every Nutella fan.

These Nutella cupcakes are moist and tender, sweet and with lots of Nutella flavor.  I used a whole Nutella jar to get this recipe right. I wanted a cupcakes that wasn’t heavy or crumbly, or sunken after baking. I wanted a moist cupcakes with a Nutella taste.  And I finally got it right.  Add to that a creamy Nutella frosting and you’ve made yourself a delicious cupcake, so rich you’ll need a glass a cold milk with it.

Just a friendly advice, do not, and I repeat do not make the frosting ahead or you’ll find yourself left with some bare cupcakes. It’s smooth, creamy, sweet and taste like Nutella. One of my friends said it’s the best frosting she ever had.

    OMG, Roxana…that photo showing the center of the cupcake is driving me absolutely crazy, it looks so good!

    I’m so happy I live in a world where these cupcakes exist. I want to just dive into a bowl of that frosting! Perfect nutella goodness!

    I’m beating myself up for missing National Nutella Day. Good thing I eat Nutella on an almost daily basis to make up for it. These cupcakes are fabulous and I’m truly jealous of your beautiful piping skills. I’m signing up for a cake decorating course in May and I can’t wait! Maybe one day I’ll be able to decorate as beautifully as you :)

    Hi, I’m trying this recipe out for a bake sale and was wondering if you’ve had any experience with this frosting in warm temperatures, and how well it holds up.

      Hi Julia,
      It depends how warm it is. If it’s above 80′s you might wanna consider making something else or keep the cupcakes in a cooler place.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I was looking all over for a recipe that actually had Nutella IN the cupcakes, not just chocolate cupcakes frosted with Nutella frosting–this was perfect!

    These look lovely and tasty! :) How important would you say the chocolate extract is? I’m not sure I’ll be able to get my hands on it. Where did you purchase yours?
