The Absolute BEST Chocolate Cupcake Recipe EVER!

This week the food blogging world is celebrating the life of one of our own.  Joan Hayes of Chocolate Chocolate and More was a force of nature and a true inspiration among food bloggers.  Unfortunately she passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack recently.  I met Joan a couple of years ago at a food blogging conference and she could light up a room in seconds– we bonded over both being from Georgia and my actually knowing where Byron Georgia was located.  Her warm heart and southern charm made everyone feel like her best friend.  She was one of those people that you instantly became friends with and as her popularity in the food world skyrocketed she remained as friendly as ever and eager to help others achieve success as well.

Instead of mourning the loss of this amazing woman we are celebrating the life of a loving friend who always insisted you indulge in dessert when having a meal with her….especially if there’s chocolate on the menu!

I know that Joan would have loved this Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Cupcake Recipe because it’s pure chocolate decadence!  I mean, as if Ferrero Rocher chocolates aren’t delicious enough on their own can you imagine how delicious they are hidden inside these cupcakes as well as topping them off?!  And the Nutella icing is out of this world AMAZING!

    Hello there , I tried these cupcakes out though the taste was great the amount of baking powder and baking soda is way too much. My cupcakes over flowed making the inside of my oven a mess. Whoever makes these make sure you use less baking powder and soda cause it will cause a complete mess. Precise mesurements is key if not your cupcakes will taste good but look a mess nothing like the picture above . Have a nice day.
