I know what you’re thinking.
Is there a Nutella 12 step program for poor Mindy? Check me into the Betty Crocker clinic. Now.
I was going to bake biscotti for my nephew’s football tailgate party on Sunday (the theme was Italian). Well, I took Mr. FSL out on the town for a surprise b-day soiree the night before. Prior to our eventful evening, we had a couple of people over and thoroughly enjoyed a
zillion few pumpkin spice pudding shots.
You can see where this is going.
The biscotti never happened. Nope. I am a flake. Instead
, I panicked, scoured our pantry, thought about running to the Italian bakery was resourceful. I had a box of yellow cake mix… and Nutella.
If you have a sweet recipe for yellow cake, by all means, go for it! If you are lazy like me, head to the box.
Add a little less water than the box (or recipe) calls for. It will come out better if the mix is a bit stiff. Of course, I forgot this step. Mix it up!
Fill up your baking cups with your cake batter.
Plop in a spoonful of Nutella in the center of each cup.
Using a knife, a toothpick, or something pointy, swirl it a little bit.
Bake according to box (or recipe).
I probably could have dusted them with powdered sugar or frosted them with Nutella. Hmmm… maybe next time.
This is a little embarrassing because there is no insanely delicious looking, ooey, gooey Nutella photo here where there should be. Um, they were completely gone by the time I remembered. Just try these, you’ll understand 😉
The outcome isn’t the prettiest cupcake I’ve ever seen, but if it tastes that good,I don’t care if it looks like Rocco’s food
