Ever since I tried the bella nutella cupcake at Cupcake A La Mode I’ve had a hankering for nutella frosting. Some googling brought me to this recipe, a nutella buttercream frosting. Perfect for a neighborhood cookout like the one we are going to tonight! I didn’t spring for the ferrero rocher candies but did get some hazelnut pirouettes to top them off with. Sooooo good, and not too rich!
Nutella Frosting (from Koko Cooks)
¾ c butter, softened
¼ c chocolate hazelnut spread
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs milk
3 c powdered sugar
Blend all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Adjust consistency by adjusting with a little more milk if too stiff, or a little more powdered sugar if too runny. Frost and decorate cupcakes as desired.
