Nutella and Ferrero Rocher cupcakes

Jump to Recipe

This last weekend was my husbands birthday and I wanted to surprise him with a dessert! His favorite desserts are Nutella and Ferrero Rocher so I combined the two and I made these cupcakes. These are very VERY sweet and VERY delicious! And way more fun to eat than a cake which I originally was thinking of making.
