    Cupcakes

    Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

    Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting

    Almond Butter or Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *clear vanilla extract is used to maintain a purer white color. If this doesn't matter to you, then you may use regular vanilla extract.
    2. 2
      For the Cupcakes: Line 3 dozen muffin cups with cupcake liners or grease using non-stick spray. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F
    3. 3
      Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar for 5 minutes, until it is pale and thick. Add in the butter. Mix until combined. Add in the nutella. Now, add in the buttermilk. Beat until well incorporated.
    5. 5
      Add the flour mixture in 3 increments and beat until smooth. Divide batter into the cupcake tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely before frosting.
    6. 6
      Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting: Cream the butter and cream cheese in the large mixing bowl of a stand mixture. Add the vanilla. Slowly incorporate the powdered sugar as you continue to cream. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat on high speed until fluffy and smooth, adding milk or additional sugar (if needed) to reach desired consistency.
    7. 7
      Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting: Cream the butter and cream cheese in the large mixing bowl of a stand mixture. Add the nutella and vanilla and continue to cream. Slowly incorporate the powdered sugar as you continue to cream. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat on high speed until fluffy and smooth, adding milk or additional sugar (if needed) to reach desired consistency. For a darker brown add 1 drop brown and 1 drop black food coloring.
    8. 8
      Almond Butter or Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting: Cream the butter and cream cheese in the large mixing bowl of a stand mixture. Add the almond butter or peanut butter and vanilla and continue to cream. Slowly incorporate the powdered sugar as you continue to cream. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat on high speed until fluffy and smooth, adding milk or additional sugar (if needed) to reach desired consistency.
    9. 9
      Once cooled, place the 3 varieties of frosting in a piping tube side by side and pipe onto each cupcake. Sprinkle with chocolate jimmies if you like!

      Sorry, forgot to rate it. 5 star recipe all the way if you reduce the sugar in the frostings.

      Like another reviewer, I only got a chance to make the nutella frosting with another chocolate cupcake batter, but look so forward to trying the nutella cupcake portion in the future. I also agree on the sweetness factor, I used less than half the powdered sugar. I know that made it a softer frosting, but otherwise it would have been way too sweet. We liked the tang of the cream cheese, but did find the nutella flavor quite mild, unless eating the frosting plain. Overall, a yummy frosting.

      I made the nutella frosting off of this recipe, but used a different cupcake batter... Next time though, I think I would add more nutella as well as cream cheese and less sugar to make it a little more on the thick side and less sugary. Otherwise next time I'll be trying the full recipe for my cupcakes!
