World Nutella Day.  Isn’t it a great day!

Just in time for the Super Bowl too – so I could have a reason to make these wonderful bites of deliciousness and not eat them all.


I searched the internet, then combined a couple of recipes.

1/2 cup self-rising flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 teaspoon almond 

1/4 cup sugar

8 ounces Nutella –

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons skim milk

Cream eggs and butter and extracts, add in nutella.  Scrape sides.  Add in dry ingredients, alternating with the milk.  Mix until you get a smooth consistency. 

I used mini cupcakes liners – makes about 30-36.  Fill no more than half way.  Spray liners of course.  Bake at 325 for about 15 minutes, don’t overcook these babies.


1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup Nutella, mine was pretty heaping of a 1/2 cup

3/4 tsp vanilla

1 Tbs skim milk

1 cup sifted powdered sugar

Mix butter and nutella.  Then vanilla and milk – finish with sugar. 

Don’t eat it all before you get it on the cupcake.
