Nutella cupcakes with vanilla and snickers filling

Nutella cupcakes

This is the same recipe as my Nutella mini layer cakes, but they are baked like cupcakes instead of cutting the muffins in two layers. Nutella cupcakes with vanilla and snickers filling! A great recipe if you want to keep the muffins case on. With the mini layer cakes, you can choose how much filling you want, but with these cupcakes, the amount is limited to the hole you make in the cupcake.

  • 3 dl flour
  • 3.3 dl sugar
  • 2 dl cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate
  • 0.6 dl natural tasting oil (I use canola oil)
  • 1.8 dl milk
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1.9 dl cold coffee (not too strong)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 dl whipping cream, chilled
  • 150 g cream cheese, chilled
  • 0.75 dl icing sugar
  • 0.25 tsp vanilla powder
  • 0.5 snickers bar, chopped (optional)
  • 150 g salted butter, room temperature
  • 1.2 dl Nutella (150g), room temperature
  • 1 dl icing sugar
  • 300 g cream cheese, chilled

Chocolate cakes:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line one or two trays with 20 muffins cases.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and whisk together. Pour the batter into the muffins cases and try to distribute them evenly. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 16-17 minutes. Try with a toothpick to see if it comes out dry.

Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool completely. Remove them carefully from the cases.


Whip the whipping cream until thick.

Whip together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla. Add the whipped cream and quickly fold it together with a spatula. Dont overmix. Mix in the chopped snickers.

Nutella buttercream:

Whisk the butter, icing sugar and Nutella together until smooth and fluffy (approx. 5 minutes). Add the cream cheese and quickly mix until smooth. Don’t overmix.

Filling the cupcakes:

Make a hole with a knife in the middle of the muffins. Pipe out some filling in the hole and pipe out nutella frosting ont top of that. Store the cupcakes in the fridge until you want to eat them. Enjoy!

Variation ideas for this fika

I skipped the dulce de leche, but if you really like dulce de leche, add some dulce de leche to the hole before filling it with the vanilla frosting.
