Nutella Toblerone Cupcakes

Recipe for Nutella Cupcake
140 g unsalted butter, softened
110g white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200 g self-raising flour
1/4 tsp salt
6 to 8 tablespoons Nutella

Preheat oven to 180degC.
Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes.
Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated.
Don't worry if the batter doesn't look smooth at this point. Add vanilla.
Stir in flour, salt and nutella until batter is uniform and no flour remains.

To test if your cake/cupcake is cooked, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake.
If it comes out clean or only with a few crumbs clinging onto it, it's ready! :)

Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Nutella Frosting Ingredients
Unsalted Butter
Icing Sugar

I don't have the exact measurements because the proportion I use each time really differs because I always do it by trial and error.
Add more milk if it's too sticky, add more icing sugar if it doesn't taste sweet enough, and add Nutella according to your preference! :)
Combine all ingredients and beat on high speed until smooth and fluffy.

Adding toblerone chocolates onto the cupcakes is a super fun and delicious way to decorate your cupcakes, plus who can resist an extra little treat? :p
