Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper baking cups. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions using oil, water and eggs. Stir in 1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts. Fill baking cups 3/4 full.
  2. Bake 30 to 32 minutes or until centers are set. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire racks.
  3. For Frosting: Beat shortening, butter and chocolate hazelnut spread in a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and 1 tablespoon of milk. Beat slowly until combined. Beat on high, 3 to 5 minutes, adding an additional 1 tablespoon milk at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
  4. Frost cupcakes by placing frosting into corner of resealable plastic bag. Cut 1/2-inch off corner of bag. Starting at outside edge, work in circular motion to build up frosting moving towards center, creating a swirl effect. Sprinkle with reserved chopped hazelnuts.

I just made these last night and I think they are fantastic. I love hazelnuts and I love Nutella, so it was the perfect recipe for me. I doubled the batch and it made more than 24, and I also ground up the hazelnuts, since I don't love taking a big bite of a cupcake and getting a huge piece of nut. I added a little but more Nutella to the frosting, and the frosting is truly creamy...the best buttercream I've ever made. A very good recipe! It's the perfect combo...the cupcake tastes like a brownie and the frosting balances out the heaviness of the brownie!

I just used the frosting recipe for a hazelnut brown recipe I had and it is amazing. It is so smooth and creamy and deliciously chocolate.

I like these brownie cupcakes a lot. I think I went a lil over board with the nutella, i put a scoop in the batter as well. A little goes a long way with that nutella, I think Ill skip putting nutella in the batter next time. Overall they turned out nicely.
