S’mores Cupcakes with Nutella Filling

I did some baking for fun over the weekend and it felt lovely to play with buttercream and chocolate just because. I decided to make s’mores cupcakes and thought they turned out well.

I used a basic vanilla cake recipe and added this emulsion to the batter. Once the cupcakes were baked and cooled, I cored them and filled them with Nutella.

I wish I had marshmallow fluff on hand because I would have filled some of the cupcakes with that, too, for the marshmallow component of s’mores. Next time πŸ˜‰

After filling the cupcakes, I frosted them with a basic vanilla buttercream.

Then it was onto the fun stuff: decorating! I melted chocolate and piped it into heart shapes and once the hearts cooled, I put those in the frosting.

For the other cupcakes, I used mini chocolate chips, graham crackers, and graham cracker crumbs to decorate them.

I wish I would have had mini marshmallows on hand to top them with. Once again, next time πŸ˜‰
