One word… Nutella.
I don’t think there is a better combination than chocolate and nutella.
These cupcakes are intensely rich and chocolatey which is extremely hard to find. With the addition of coffee, it really brings out the flavor of the chocolate. I must have baked 50 batches of different chocolate cupcake recipes and I still didn’t seem to be happy with the result. Until now! Woohoooo, my perfect chocolate cupcake searching days are over!
The frosting… UGH. This frosting is the best frosting in the entire world. It’s so creamy and soft and soooo addicting!! I could have eaten the entire bowl myself. It’s like a fluffy nutella cloud in your mouth. Delicious.
Oh, did I mention there’s a chocolate ganache center? Yes. Ah-mazing. The trick to this is, after you scoop your cupcake batter into the liners, you put a dollop of cooled ganache in the center of each cupcake. It’s like magic. The batter bakes over the ganache and you have a melty, gooey, chocolatey center. YUM! There may be some spots on top where it didn’t completely bake over, but you’re just going to cover that up with some frosting.
I ate one of these babies and was in chocolate/nutella HEAVEN! I will definitely make these again and again. And again. And again.
