Nutella Cupcakes Recipe

I never used to like Nutella, I was always a proper chocolate spread kind of girl. Specifically a nice Cadbury one if I was to be picky. But Hubby stopped buying it and went for the Nutella and now we buy it in the kilo… Literally thanks to the new family sized jar. I really enjoy baking and so does P2 but for some strange reason she will never eat her creations. I decided to use Nutella, which they love, to make cupcakes and they went down amazingly! Here’s how you can make some too. Make sure to scroll to the bottom for a printable recipe too!
