Nutella is one of those foods that you either love or hate. While I don’t love Nutella in everything and certainly wouldn’t want to eat it by the spoonful, I love the depth of flavor it gives when you add it to a treat. Enter Nutella Frosting

Take a plain ol’ cupcake and top it with Nutella Frosting? Now it’s pretty amazing 🙂

When I found the new Pillsbury Funfetti cake mixes at my local Target for $2.50 a box I knew I had to buy a few. Pillsbury makes a pretty good gluten free cake mix, but adding Nutella frosting and a few sprinkles really takes these to the next level!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Using a stand mixer with whisk attachment (or a large bowl and regular mixer), beat butter 1 minute on medium-high speed.
  2. Add Nutella and cream for another minute on medium-high speed.
  3. Add powdered sugar and mix until combined. It will look very powdery and won't be frosting consistency yet.
  4. Add 1 T milk while the mixer is running. Add milk 1/2 T at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition, until desired consistency is reached.
  5. Use this frosting to frost cupcakes or brownies, make graham cracker sandwiches, stuff strawberries or raspberries...the possibilities are endless!

    I’m a probably-need-to-be-checked-into-nutella-rehab Nutella addict, too! Can’t get enough of the stuff so I CANNOT WAIT to make this. Plus I have just shy of 2 dozen gluten-free funfetti mixes just begging to be topped with this frosting. So glad to hear the mix is good. WOOT!

    If only they made Nutella with a dairy free option! This looks SO delicious! I had a similar excited moment when I found the Gluten Free Funfetti mix for my daughters birthday. She was thrilled too! Thanks for linking up with us at the Best of the Blogosphere! We’d love to have you back tomorrow for a new week. 🙂

      I’ll stop by! We often use Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Spread for a sub (check out my Nutella Stuffed Rice Krispie Treats!) but haven’t tried that with the frosting yet-but I bet it could work if you added a little extra almond milk. Let me know if you try it!
