Ok so I work for a catering company and as a result, I get to try a TON of yummy food! The other day, our chef brought me a Nutella muffin and I fell in love! I decided to try and make it at home.
Let me try and make your mouth water here – This muffin was a soft, moist, vanilla flavored muffin with pockets of Nutella throughout. To top it all off, the top had a drizzle of (you guessed it!) even more Nutella. YUM right?
I had to have more.
I went to the store and bought:
1) Nutella (of course!)
2) Krusteaz almond poppyseed muffin mix (it was the closest to vanilla that I could find)
Mix all the ingredients together that it says to on the box but DON’T mix in the poppyseeds.
Spoon the mix into your muffin pan after you put the papers in it.
Put a dollop of Nutella on the top of each muffin (try melting it in the microwave a little bit first so that it spreads more evenly on the top of the muffin). Push it down into the muffin mix a little bit with a toothpick so that it makes a “swirl” of Nutella in the top half of the muffin.
Bake it like the box says.
Once they come out of the oven, have more slightly melted Nutella ready for them (See step 3). Drizzle the slightly melted Nutella on the top.
Let cool, grab a glass of milk, and enjoy!
As a variation on this recipe, you can put the dollop of Nutella in the middle of your muffin and just add the drizzle on top. That would be super yummy!
