Nutella Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes
A couple of my friends are constantly feeding me ideas for the blog, which is so helpful! My friend Zinni has a major sweet tooth and he asked me to make cupcakes made in soft serve ice cream cones. He saw them on another blog and had never seen them before. I took the idea and ran with it. Zinni loves chocolate, so I figured I should make Nutella cupcakes. I thought it would be fun to make these cupcakes look as much like ice cream cones as possible.
These cupcakes were very quick and easy to make. The only issue is that they would be difficult to transport because they kept tipping over!
You will need:
1 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 tablespoons Nutella
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Milk
Soft Serve Ice Cream Cones
Multi Colored Sprinkles
4 ounces Cream Cheese (at room temperature)
1/3 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 tablespoon Milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then mix all of the cupcake ingredients together. Fill the ice cream cones with the batter. Do not fill completely, since the batter will rise as it cooks, leave 1/2 an inch at the top for the batter to rise.
Place the cones in the oven. They might fit in the oven rack. Bake for 25 minutes.
While the cupcakes are baking, mix all of the frosting ingredients with a mixer until smooth.
Once the cupcakes are fully cooked, remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely before topping with the frosting and sprinkles.
