It’s chocolate time! I managed to save myself £1.50 on the hazelnuts in the supermarket – one tip – don’t buy nuts from the ‘whole foods’ or ‘healthy’ section, they’re a rip off! Go to the baking section instead.
For these chocolate and hazelnut cupcakes I used Green & Blacks cocoa powder and then once the batter was spooned into the cases, I made a well in the centre and added a ‘gloop’ of Nutella :). Once baked for approx. 15 mins (at 175 in a fan oven), I piped chocolate butter cream on top (I think chocolate ganache would work nicely too), and sprinkled more hazelnut pieces over them.
Some tasty cupcake goodness to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon (and in the lunch box for the rest of this week!).
