Nutella Self Frosting Cupcakes

I am a self confessed Nutella addict, on the bread, strawberries dipped in them or straight from the jar and then many years ago I came across these self frosting beauties at a Donna Hay website and I had to make them. Since then I have made them on an average once a quarter, sometimes once a month. These are so fancy without actually having to frost them and they have nutella what else can one ask for really.

They are always a hit specially with the kids who get fascinated by the swirls on the top as they wonder how they are made, they are great for the snack box as well.

This is now a recipe that even the child at home knows by heart. Ready in 30-35 minutes they are fantastic last minute treats for anything. I actually can't believe that I haven't shared it here yet. That is another thing I am loving about A-Z challenge it is making me post and dig out my favorite recipes that somehow I have been too lazy to post on the blog.
