Super Simple Nutella Valentines cupcakes

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon and a gigantic jar of Nutella sitting in my cupboard I thought what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than to whip up some super easy Valentine's Day Nutella cupcakes?

I'm not a great cook but I followed this simple (only 3 ingredients) recipe and was rewarded with chocolately, gooey, delicious cupcakes. Here's the recipe if you would also like some gooey, chocolate deliciousness in your life.

For the cake
  1. 150g nutella
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 60g self-raising flour (I also added a bit of coco powder to my flour for an extra hit of chocolate)
For the icing (frosting)
1. 75g unsalted butter or margarine ( I used butter)
2. 250g of icing sugar
3. 4 large tbsp of Nutella

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Mix the Nutella, egg and flour till thoroughly combined. Divide between 8 cupcake cases - they should be about two-thirds full.
  3. Bake for around 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  4. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Whilst the cakes are cooling cream butter and icing sugar  together and then use an electric mixer to mix the Nutella in – this should hopefully make the icing light and fluffy.
  6. When the cakes have cooled add a generous amount of icing and sprinkle with sugar hearts
  7. Stick on your favourite romcom and tuck in.

I also found this cute Ferris Wheel at Wilko for only £10, the best part is as you choose a cupcake from the stand the rest move round- it's soo much fun!

Have you made anything for Valentine's Day? What's your favourite way to eat Nutella?
I would love to know!
