Nutella Cupcakes Recipe

I love everything about these cupcakes.

No joke my darling husband ate 8 of these cupcakes in one sitting ( he forgot that I told him I made them for his friends at work)

How he did not get a stomach ache is beyond me – my mom has stories about how much food my husband can eat ( his stomach is literally like a black hole)

Again it is snowing so I made another recipe in my own kitchen šŸ™‚ BUT do not worry I have recipes with my dad “helper” coming up soon šŸ™‚

I have tried for a while not to get fresh strawberries since they are not in season but I caved this week

Did you know when I was 6 years old I ate 2 pints of strawberries in one sitting and I had some allergic reaction where my face turned bright red and puffy ( so my love for strawberries has no bounds šŸ˜‰ )

I decided to use a milk chocolate cake mix for the recipe since it would pair well with the nutella chocolate

I wanted to create a cupcake that would be perfect for a dinner party or a birthday party šŸ™‚

You might noticed that the strawberries look like they have a syrup on them – what I did was combine the strawberries in a bowl with vanilla and sugar. I stirred and let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes and the strawberries are amazing. They have a light sugar and vanilla taste to it ( which is the bomb)

You can frost your cupcake with a knife or you can get a little fancy ( like I did ) and use a piping bag – either way it will be extremely yummy
