Nutella Cupcakes

I dont think i need to say anything about this.... Its Nutella! found this recipe here

For the cupcakes: 
- 2 cups flour 
- 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder 
- 2 tsp baking soda 
- 1 tsp baking powder 
- 1/2 tsp salt 
- 1 cup sugar  
- 2 eggs 
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened  
- 1/2 cup nutella 
- 1/2 cup milk

For the frosting: 
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened 
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
- 3 Tbsp nutella

To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin pan with cupcakes liners. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar for 3-5 minutes or until the mixture is pale and thick. Add in the butter and beat until combined. Then, add in the nutella. Add the flour mixture and milk half at a time until well-blended. Divide batter into the cupcake liners, filling 2/3 full. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

To make the frosting, beat the butter until smooth. Add in the powdered sugar gradually until all of it has been incorporated, and then beat in the nutella. Decorate the cupcakes as desired - once frosted, I sprinkled mine with chocolate shavings. Makes about a dozen and a half cupcakes.

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
