Even though I am a big advocate of healthy eating, I do like to indulge sometimes ;) My family had a get together yesterday, and I decided to make Ferrero rocher stuffed cupcakes! The lovely MilkBubbleTea inspired me, but I used the recipe from The Curvy Carrot.
I think it's such an original concept! Ferrero rocher's are my favourite chocolates so this was the perfect cake for me!
I started off by mixing cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt together. I then mixed 3 eggs, vanilla extract, butter, sugar and sour cream in a separate bowl.
I then mixed them together and placed them on a cupcake pan evenly.
The Ferrero rocher's were added to the batter, and the remaining batter was used to cover the Ferrero rocher (this part is optional - you don't have to completely cover the chocolate)
The cupcakes were left in the oven for approximately 20 minutes
For the icing (the most time consuming part), I mixed some butter, sugar, milk, nutella and vanilla extract. My cousin has icing equipment (purchased from Lakeland) so she was able to make the frost look pretty ;)
Optional - you can mash up some Ferrero rocher's and place them on the frosting.
The cupcake was delicious, albeit extremely sweet!
Have you ever tried this?
