Nutella Cupcakes
Happy World Nutella Day!
Make some Self Frosting Nutella Cupcakes today!

World Nutella Day celebrates its 5th anniversary today! Ms Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso are the masters of ceremonies for this delicious foodie holiday.

Nutella CupcakesWho doesn't love Nutella?! I hope indulge in some Nutella today...on toast, with peanut butter, on a crepe, or in a cupcake...or just straight from the jar! :)

After making the batter, one teaspoon of Nutella is marbled into the cupcake. The crumb is more muffin than light cupcake. The Nutella topping is rich and gives it enough sweetness.

Nutella Cupcakes
Each one is very unique depending on how much your marble the Nutella. This would be a fun and easy recipe to make with kids!

Happy Nutella Day! I made these, too, except I buried the Nutella in them and. I like yours better, but that doesn't mean mine went into the trash. :-)

you had me at "self-frosting"! funny - my niece Kennedy just discovered nutella this past weekend... introduced by the grandparents (of course)... she was so excited because she had finally eaten all of her strawberries for breakfast... her mother was not so excited to learn that the strawberries were dipped in nutella first! EGADS!
