CUPCAKES WITH NUTELLA AND PRUNE FILLING

Chocolate and hazelnut cream

I am so very late, so very late that I actually don’t think I deserve to be allowed into the roundup but I asked Sara of Ms.Adventures in Italy who is such a nice and kind person if I could submit something after deadline and she said yes so now I do it. For the last two years I have been following World Nutella Day, hosted by Sara and Michelle of Bleeding Espresso without participating but this year I am because they have changed the rules so now I can participate with the chocolate and hazelnut cream I buy, the Crema spalmabile con nocciola e cacao magro made by Coop that is a Fair Trade product. I actually think it tastes better than Nutella, it’s less sweet and more chocolately. But what was I going to make? The main reason to why I buy it in the first place is that I use it as a filling when I make crepes for my children but that felt too ordinary but I still had to make something simple as I really didn’t have much time to make it so I went for cupcakes hiding a combination that I really like, nutella (let’s call it like that) and prunes. Chocolate and prunes is an old favourite of mine so why not make a nutella and prune filling? The only thing that I would do differently is to put more of the filling into the cupcakes!
