Tonight I wanted to make my son some cupcakes with Nutella. Since we were getting ready to watch the Olympic trials on TV, I didn't want to make a complicated recipe. So I made some easy Nutella Swirl Cupcakes from white cupcakes out of a box with an added a spoonful of Nutella.
Then I swirled the batter a little bit.
After baking, I made some vanilla butter cream frosting, and put some Nutella in the bag as well.
Then I frosted them. They taste great with just plain buttercream frosting or, even unfrosted. You will get a taste of the hazelnut spread when you bit into them.
This is how they look frosted. Easy peasy and took only a few extra minutes to make.
These are ridiculously easy and so tasty!

So you love Nutella too? Please note that this is not sponsored in any way by Nutella. I just love it!
Those look so good. I have never used Nutella. What does it taste like?
Oh Michelle! You will need some for your B & B. It is a hazelnut - chocolate spread that is somewhere between peanut butter and chocolate frosting. I had it in France in a crepe the first time. It is delicious without being overly sweet.

Love how you swirled the frosting. Nutella is one of my Favorite Foods! But my favorite way to eat it is with a spoon right out of the jar.
LOL! You are right Christin, it is good that way too!
