Ferrero Rocher sweets are baked inside cupcakes, then iced with Nutella® and chopped hazelnuts to make these extremely indulgent chocolate treats!
Most of the hazelnut flavor in this cupcake comes from the Nutella® frosting. It is good, but I was disappointed that the cake itself did not have a stronger hazelnut presence. If you were to add more Frangelico liqueur the cake would be too sweet. I did place a small amount of batter in the tins before adding the candies. Next time I would simply fill the tins and push the candies into the batter. Thanks for sharing! - 21 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa and frozen Ferrer Rocher candies (no special reason for freezing, just what I had). I need more practice making pretty cupcakes, but I'll eat tasty and ugly ones any day! - 15 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very dry and flat. I used unsalted butter so I'm thinking it needed salt. - 13 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
