Fudgy, moist & delicious!!

A recipe this quick and delicious is DANGEROUS. Keep a jar of Nutella in the house and your only a few minutes away from these rich wonderful cupcakes.

After recently making these for a friend as a gift this week, I highly recommend the addition of the 4th ingred (hazelnuts). They add a wonderful dimension to these. Just be sure to lightly toast them up in a pan with a little sugar. Then sprinkle them onto frosting once cooled. Adds a wonderful crunchy flavor and texture.

PS .. Also FANTASTIC sprinkled with coarse sea salt!

How to Make 3 ingredient Nutella cupcakes


  1. Please Note: I have also used a mixture of cake flour & self rising flour ... and prefer that ... as they turn out larger, and less dense. The All-purpose flour will produce more of a brownie textured cupcake. So use whatever you prefer. It's ALL good: )
  2. Heat oven to 350'
    Line 9-10 cups of a mini muffin pan w/foil liners (or about 5 reg size).
  3. Mix together 1/2 cup of the Nutella & egg & whisk until smooth. Add flour and whisk until well blended. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups & bake until toothpick comes out with wet gooey crumbs (about 11 minutes) DO NOT OVERBAKE.
  4. Set out on rack & cool completely.
    Warm remaining Nutella 15-20 sec's in micro till warm & fluid.
    Dip tops of cupcakes into Nutella & sprinkle w/chopped toasted sweetened hazelnuts & coarse sea salt if desired.
    Grab a spoon and eat remaining nutella ... ok scratch that part; } (But that's what I do: )
