Hey there again! Sorry I’ve been offline for a while, but I hope everyone here in the US had a fabulous Independence Day! I love the summertime, despite the Texas heat, and was really wanting to come up with a fun summer dessert. My sister-in-law, who may be my biggest baking fan and reads all my blog post, is the one who requested an extra chocolatey S’mores cupcake for her birthday… and these couldn’t have been more on point! You will love these rich, moist dark chocolate cupcakes with hints of graham cracker and Nutella and a perfectly toasted marshmallow to top it off! It’s pure yumminess and I hope you enjoy!
And if you’re as addicted to S’mores as I am, try my Peanut Butter S’mores Cupcakes and my Decadent S’mores Cake!
Well, I did it again. I thought about trying another chocolate cake recipe and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it! I made this one for my sister’s birthday and she is a big fan of my decadent, rich chocolate cake… so it just had to be done! This time I paired it with an amazing Nutella Buttercream… and OH.MY.GOODNESS is it amazing! It’s rich, it’s chocolatey and you won’t regret a single bite! J So forgive me one last time for sharing my go-to chocolate cake recipe, but seriously you have to try it!!
It’s Fall y’all! That time of year for sweaters, boots and scarves (oh my)! Of course, in Texas it takes much longer to actually feel like Fall… but that doesn’t stop me from pulling out the Fall decor and, of course, starting to bake with all my favorite Fall flavors! So to kick off the Fall season, I introduce these fabulous Dark Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes with a Swiss Meringue Nutella Swirl Frosting (it’s a mouthful, I know). 🙂
I know I talk a lot about my love for various types of sweets, and Nutella is definitely no exception. On our first trip to Europe, my husband and I tried Nutella crepes in Paris, Nutella Gelato in Florence and again in Rome… I just couldn’t get enough! There is something irresistible about that creamy hazelnut-chocolate flavor, it’s just perfect for any dessert. Here’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy Nutella, in a cupcake! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
