ok, so i've been wanting to try these for awhile...nutella cupcakes...sounds absolutely sinfully divine, right? no particular occasion just really wanted to make them for some of the assistant teachers at school who have a serious LURVE for nutella. so what better way to say thanks to them for always being there in class and taking care of stuff than baking them some of these. the batter was a basic cupcake batter then just topped with the nutella and finally swirled together with a toothpick. i'm pretty pleased with the final result...they taste seriously nutella-ish - so much so that you need to eat these with a nice glass of milk, cup of tea or whatever does it for you in the cake accompaniment department! i tell you something else...the smell of them cooking was just fantabulous! my mouth was watering just waiting for them to come out of the oven and as you can see from the piccies, so was someone else's! WARNING - these are for serious nutella fans ONLY!
