Chocolate and Hazelnut Cupcakes

Nutella has to be one of my absolute favourite things and one of the few things I genuinely miss. These cupcakes more than make up for not being able to eat it though- the icing is so so chocolatey and creamy and the cake is perfectly moist!!!

I’d love to see your photos if you make these yourselves #liviaskitchen
