Ferraro Roche Cupcakes

For me, Christmas just screams Ferraro Roche, I know that they are available all year round but there is just something about December that makes me want them. So when I was dreaming up Christmas baking ideas I just knew I had to include them somewhere and I did, in my Ferraro Roche Cupcakes and here is how you can make them too:

  • 150g of Butter
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 100g of Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 12 Ferraro Roche

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (Fan) and put your cupcake cases into the tin
  2. Start to make the cupcakes by creaming the sugar and 100g of the butter together in a bowl
  3. Once smooth, sieve in the bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and flour in and combine thoroughly
  4. Then add the eggs and whisk until you have a smooth batter
  5. Divide the batter equally into your cupcakes cases
  6. Before placing into the oven place one Ferraro Roche into the centre of each cupcake (the top will show)
  7. The bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes
  8. Once baked, take the cupcakes out of the oven and allow to cool
  9. Whilst the cool you can prepare the topping
  10. To do this, sieve the cocoa and icing sugar into a bowl and add the remaining butter
  11. Cream until smooth then use a palette knife to spread over the top of each cupcake
  12. Once you have frosted each one you can top with hazelnuts, to do this pour the hazelnuts into a bowl, carefully hold the cupcake upside down and dip into the nuts so they stick to the frosting
  13. Repeat with each before serving

Note: This recipe makes 12 cupcakes

The best thing about these Ferraro Roche Cupcakes is not telling anyone what is inside, then they look like your average nut covered cupcake and the recipient has a pleasant surprise. Now these cakes were DELICIOUS, the Ferraro Roche melts slightly so you have the goey centre, crispy bits and the light sponge, just divine and for me, the epitome of Christmas time!
