Nutella Buttercream Cupcakes with a Sweet Cadbury Surprise











Discover the joy of baking with our Nutella Buttercream Cupcakes, hiding a delightful Cadbury Egg surprise. Perfect for Easter, these treats blend the rich flavor of Nutella with the sweetness of Cadbury Eggs, all wrapped in a soft, mouth-watering cupcake.


Step 1: Preheat and Prepare

Begin this sweet adventure by preheating your oven to a cozy 350 degrees. Embrace your inner baker by lightly greasing a muffin tin designed for 6 jumbo treats. This step ensures your cupcakes don't stick, making them as beautiful as they are delicious.
Pro Tip: Use paper liners for easier cleanup and removal.

Step 2: Mix it Up

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your cake mix, milk, fragrant vanilla, and oil until just combined. There's no need for perfection here; a bit of enthusiasm and love does the trick. Then, introduce the eggs to the mix, beating them into the batter until everything is wonderfully blended.
Pro Tip: Don't over-mix to keep the cupcakes light and fluffy.

Step 3: Bake

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cavity about two-thirds full, to leave room for the magic to happen. Slide the tin into the oven and bake for 18-21 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the cupcakes comes out clean. The smell filling your kitchen will be a tantalizing preview of the joy to come.
Pro Tip: Rotate the tin halfway through baking for even cupcakes.

Step 4: Cadbury Surprise

Once baked, allow the cupcakes to cool briefly, then, with a gentle hand and a spoon, scoop a small cavity into the top of each. This is where the magic happens: nestle a Cadbury Egg into each, its smaller end peeking out, ready to surprise and delight. This is what makes these cupcakes not just treats, but treasures.
Pro Tip: Let cupcakes cool completely to prevent melting the Cadbury Egg.

Step 5: Frost and Revel

The final flourish is the Nutella Buttercream frosting, swirled richly atop each cupcake, masterfully hiding the Cadbury Egg, creating a seamless chocolate crown. Every swirl and dollop adds character, transforming these cupcakes into a feast for the eyes as much as the palate.
Pro Tip: Use a piping bag for a professional finish.
