I just made these last night and I think they are fantastic. I love hazelnuts and I love Nutella, so it was the perfect recipe for me. I doubled the batch and it made more than 24, and I also ground up the hazelnuts, since I don't love taking a big bite of a cupcake and getting a huge piece of nut. I added a little but more Nutella to the frosting, and the frosting is truly creamy...the best buttercream I've ever made. A very good recipe! It's the perfect combo...the cupcake tastes like a brownie and the frosting balances out the heaviness of the brownie!
I just used the frosting recipe for a hazelnut brown recipe I had and it is amazing. It is so smooth and creamy and deliciously chocolate.
I like these brownie cupcakes a lot. I think I went a lil over board with the nutella, i put a scoop in the batter as well. A little goes a long way with that nutella, I think Ill skip putting nutella in the batter next time. Overall they turned out nicely.
Just made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I did not add the extra hazelnuts, but when I make this again I will probably add some on top, as a garnish. Next time, I will also make the brownies from scratch.
The frosting was absolutely amazing! I thought the 1 T of milk was enough - the consistency was light and airy and fluffy. I may substitute cream for milk next time, just to try.
I only made the frosting, but it's to die for! It's light, creamy, and not too sweet. I've never been a big Nutella fan, but had a jar sitting there and thought that I'd try this frosting. It's definitely one that I'll make again. I doubled the recipe to frost a cake. There was a little left over, but I'm sure that it won't go to waste.
