Simple, chocolate cupcakes filled with Ferrero Rocher pralines and butter cream frosting. Perfect as a snack or to take to work as a second breakfast.

Personally, i don’t know anybody who doesn’t like these delicious Ferrero Rocher balls. So I thought it would be a great combination to prepare them witch chocolate cupcakes! However, if you wanna skip using Ferrero Rocher pralines, there is no need to add them. You can just make chocolate cupcakes using this recipe!

How To Make Cupcakes

Firstly, melt chocolate over simmering water or in the microwave. I advice you to use for this recipe dark chocolate with at least 72% of cocoa. Then all you have to do, is to add the rest of the ingredients of the cupcake dough and stir very well until combined. For better results, use natural cocoa powder.

To prepare the cream you will need soft butter. Beat it until light and fluffy. Add in caster sugar and cocoa, then beat again until well combined. Pour in melted and cooled dark chocolate and beat for about one minute. After that, place in in the fridge for at least 5 minutes to set before decorating cupcakes. Using any tip of your choice, pip butter cream on the cupcakes. Decorate with some Ferrero Rocher pralines if you like.
