  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan or baking pan with cupcakes liners. While we wait, we mix together the dry ingredients: cocoa powder, baking powder, flour, and sugar. If you you feel like making cupcakes from scratch takes too long or is too much work, you can use any chocolate cake mix and get cupcakes that are just as good. Follow the instructions on the box and skip to the step where we insert the Ferrero Rocher candy inside.

    Next, we mix the rest of our ingredients together in a separate bowl: milk, butter (or oil if you want to be healthier), vanilla extract/yogurt, and eggs.

  • Step 5

    Fill the rest of your cupcake liners with your batter and make sure to cover the candy. Then place the pan in the oven and wait 20-22 minutes. To find out if its ready, poke a cupcake with a toothpick. If it's ready, the toothpick will come out clean, and your kitchen will be smelling delicious.

  • Step 6

    Take your cupcakes out of the oven, and as they cool, prepare your frosting. Mix 1 part Nutella with 1 part icing, or create your own frosting creation depending on how much you love Nutella. When the cupcakes cool, frost them and put a Ferrero Rocher on top for garnish if you'd like.
