*Splurge alert!* If Nutella makes you swoon, then you’ll love this heavenly frosting!! I love it with red velvet cupcakes If I am indulging, then it needs to be worth the cheat. This recipe definitely qualifies. Homemade frosting is so much better than store bought and it’s so easy to make!
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup Nutella
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 -1/2 tsp sea salt (I like a very slight salty taste, so I use 1/2 tsp)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp whole milk (can also use heavy cream)
1 tsp good quality vanilla
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and Nutella until well blended. Add sea salt, cocoa, milk or cream and vanilla and blend until mixed. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time until all is blended, smooth and creamy. Pipe onto cupcakes and dive in!
