I am just going to say it, Nutella Buttercream Cupcakes are the BEST cupcakes. What makes these cupcakes they best? It’s that hidden and Easter favorite, Cadbury egg. I have been wanting to share these cupcakes for a while, and now they are here just in time for Easter. Grab your mixer and let’s do this!
I have fond memories growing up and celebrating Easter. My father was in the military, so we were always traveling When I was younger we lived in Germany, and Easter was such a cool time. I can still remember my white lace dress and my white Easter basket. Hunting for those eggs was always my favorite.
Today I am going to share with you an easy way to hunt for an egg. In fact, I love this recipe so much because we all get an egg in the end (and some of us may even get TWO!)
Nutella Buttercream Cupcakes
These jumbo cupcakes are seriously so easy and some of the best. You don’t have to have anything extra special on hand other than a regular vanilla cake mix, Cadbury eggs, and a little Nutella.
When I was younger I always remember working in the kitchen with my mom. It’s funny, because growing up I don’t really remember a lot, but I always remember spending quality time with her in the kitchen.
To this day she still cooks dinners and desserts and now enlists the help of my daughters to help her. And of course, they absolutely LOVE every minute of it.

Tips for Nutella Frosting
A quick tip for the Nutella frosting: Add the milk a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Don’t just start adding ingredients and mixing. Take your time and slowly add the milk as needed. Everything will just start coming together smoothly after that.
