I love Kinder Bueno so the idea of making cupcakes that has kinder bueno incorporated is something I just have to do. Also, I’m having a catch up this weekend with the girls from university so I wanted to take some cupcakes with me.
Kinder Bueno Cupcakes
- 175 g unsalted butter
- 175 g Light Brown Sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 140 g self-raising flour
- 35 g Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 150 g unsalted butter room temp
- 300 g icing sugar
- 100 g Kinder Chocolate Bars chopped
- Kinder Bueno
- Preheat your oven to 170C/160CFan and Line a 12 Hole Muffin Tray with Large Cupcake Cases/Muffin Cases
- Cream together the Butter and Light Brown Sugar with an electric beater till smooth – add in the Eggs, Flour, Cocoa and the vanilla extract and beat again till combined on a Medium Speed.
- Spoon into your Cases and Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through! Leave to cool on a wire rack.
- Once the cakes are cool, make the frosting – Melt the Kinder Chocolate Bars in the microwave on a low/medium heat until smooth – leave to cool. Beat the room temperature butter until smooth.
- Add in the Icing Sugar 1/3 at a time, making sure the sugar is fully incorporated. Once all of the Sugar is in the Frosting mix, keep on beating the Frosting but add the melted and slightly cooled Kinder Chocolate – beat again. If its looking a bit stiff, or a bit odd, add a tsp or two of boiling water and continue to beat until smooth.
- Add your buttercream to the piping bag and pipe on your cakes. Then decorate your cupcakes how you like, I stick in half a bit of kinder bueno each, and sprinkle on some chocolate sprinkles – and ENJOY!
I used some more kinder bueno bars and chocolate sprinkles for the top of the cupcakes. I absolutely love these cupcakes and everyone who tried them loved them as well. You could decorate these cupcakes with anything on the top that has the nice hazelnut taste like the kinder buenos. This recipe gave me the chance to use some new equipment of mine which was my cake mixture scoop and it is one of the best things I have invested in. It just gives a nice even scoop of mixture into the cupcake cases. You do not have to mess around getting an equal amount of cake mixture in each of the cases, one scoop and its totally even.
