Author: Lainey


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cups vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 6 Ferrero Rocher
  • Chocolate Nutella Frosting
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • ¼ cup cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup Nutella
  • 4 oz candy melts melted
  • 12 Ferrero Rocher


  • In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Mix it until everything is well-combined.
  • In a separate bowl, you will need to mix the wet ingredients. Add in the milk, vanilla extract, oil, and egg.
  • Take your handheld mixer and you're gonna mix it until it is light and fluffy.
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Take about a tablespoon of cupcake batter and place it onto your cupcake liners.
  • Grab your Ferrero Rocher and place it into the center of the cupcake.
  • Fill up the cupcake liners to about two-thirds full.
  • Pop into the oven and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once the cupcakes are done baking, cool them first because we are going to make the chocolate frosting.

Here's how to make the chocolate buttercream frosting:

  • In a mixing bowl, you're going to add the softened butter and powdered sugar and mix it until it's light and fluffy.
  • Once the powdered sugar and butter are mixed, add the softened cream cheese and mix again until well-incorporated.
  • Finally, add in the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, some melted chocolate and Nutella.
  • Mix well until well blended and until it becomes light and fluffy.
  • Frost the cupcakes and top it with Ferrero Rocher.
