These are the ever-famous and deliciously rich Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes topped with Nutella Buttercream frosting! It is so creamy, quick to make, and perfect for any party!
If there is one chocolate candy I can eat for the rest of my life it’s Ferrero Rocher! I LOVE Ferrero Rocher! I can eat it every day for the rest of my life which is not a good idea, I know. But if I could, I would.
I remember two summers ago, I went to the Philippines for a mission trip and one of the chocolates I brought was Ferrero Rocher. Note, that in the Philippines, chocolate tastes different, it’s not as sweet, it’s more bitter, and it doesn’t taste like chocolate. So when bringing chocolate from America, the Filipino People LOVE it!! Anyways, since it was packed in my luggage, I ate a WHOLE bunch which got me sick during the trip, but I still ate it! That is how much I LOVE Ferrero Rocher!
