Ferrero Rocher cupcakes

This past weekend I tried a recipe I've been wanting to try for some time now and oh boy was it a delicious treat indeed. Believe me when I say you HAVE to try these cupcakes, they're to die for! The biggest problem I had was not eating all the Ferrero Rocher chocolates before I could use them in the cupcakes. 

Cupcakes

Ingredients:



Method:
Preheat the oven to 180° and line the cupcake tray with paper cups.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, 
cocoa, and baking powder.

In another bowl beat together the oil, egg, 
buttermilk and vanilla extract until well combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Scoop a tablespoon of the batter into each cup, 
then place a unwrapped (frozen) Ferrero Rocher 
in each cup and add the remaining batter.

Bake for 16-20 minutes.
