I finally made it right and Goshhh it’s yummy!. Anything with Nutella is good but with the covered strawberry Oooh Yuuummmmm!. I used This Silly Girl’s life recipe for cupcakes, of course, I adjusted a couple of measures just to get what I expected, no big deal.

UPDATE: Sadly the shop that sent me the tools and supplies used on this post shut down. For this recipe, I used some awesome products I got from Wholeport, a go-to place for finding the widest variety of affordable craft supplies online and they have been dedicated to ensuring a quality crafting experience. In my opinion, the products I got are great and super fun because they come in different colors and shapes. So far I’m very happy with my products and eager to bake more with them.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries topping Nutella Stuffed Cupcakes Recipe

Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF {180ºC} and line muffin pan with cupcake liners. I used these cute heart patterned cupcake liners I got from Wholeport but since the two first batches when wrong, I ran out of these cute liners and used white regular ones and used the last heart patterned to serve nicely the cupcakes.

 

First, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form and set in the fridge.

Cream the butter on medium speed until it’s very soft and creamy then add little by little the sugar mix for about 5 minutes.

I a small bowl mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. The cute colorized spoons can be found here.

Start adding to the butter mixture without turning off the mixer the vanilla extract and the whipped cream wait about one minute and add the eggs one at a time {including the yolks}. When they are completely incorporated add the coloring food.

Then little by little add the flour mixture to the batter. Mix for a couple more minutes and turn off the mixer.

Divide evenly the batter for 12 cupcakes and cook for about 20 minutes. To make sure insert a toothpick in the middle and if it comes clean it’s done.

Wait a few minutes and place the cupcakes in a cooling rack.

Let them cool completely.

Frosting

In a stand mixer with a whisk whip the butter for about 5 minutes over medium-high speed scrap the bowl once or twice during that time. Add little by little the powder sugar on slow speed. Once it’s all incorporated, scrape the sides and add the vanilla whipping again on medium-high speed again for 1-2 minutes.

Chocolate Dip

Melt the chocolate chips in bain-marie {hot water bath}. When you see it’s soft then start whipping until there are no lumps. Turn off the heat and leave it there.

Cupcake Decoration.

When the cupcakes are cool make a small hole in the middle of the cupcakes. I used an apple corer {not sure if I’m weird but it worked} I pressed it down then turned it around a bit and pulled most of them the center piece came out with the tool. So I kept just the top part as a lid.

Fill the hole with Nutella, you can use an icing bag or just a ziplock cutting one corner. Put the cupcake lid back.

With an icing bag and a big closed star tip pipe the frosting on top of each cupcake.

Covering the Strawberries

Wash your strawberries well and let them dry.

With very clean hands, dip the strawberries one by one in the hot chocolate and put it on top of the frosting.

Once the chocolate cools off again the chocolate will harden and look so pretty.

Tadaaaaa! Done!.

Look what happens when you cut the cupcake open!!!

Oh my!

It’s a bit of work but it’s so worth it! Using my super cute cupcake stand I present my delicious cupcakes to you {I’m loving this stand; I’m so silly LOL}.

Everybody loved the cupcakes at home, and they were all gone by the next day.

Do you put chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge?

You can definitely chill in the fridge, but don’t keep refrigerated all the time. Once you’re finished dipping your strawberries, they might need about 15-30 minutes to chill and harden in the refrigerator if you are using it for different purposes.

Chocolate does not like to stay cold for long. it usually gets white and chalky. It’s better if you keep your chocolate covered strawberries in an airtight container in another cool place but as any fruit, make sure you consume them withing 48 hours.
