Mini Nutella Cupcakes

There is nothing awesome-r than a recipe that’s easy to make AND tasty. Usually it’s one or the other, which is why this recipe has made it to the top of my list. I can’t think of anything simpler than three ingredients and few things are better than nutella (don’t even try).

The first time my daughter and I made these I was skeptical the recipe would actually work. It did so now you too have a go-to Nutella dessert. You’re welcome. You can make these mini or regular sized, either one works, I just happen to like mini everything. Also, as a side note, the Cocoa Almond Spread from Trader Joe’s is an awesome substitute for Nutella. Never the same, but pretty darn close if you’re ever in a bind.
