Nutella is so in vogue that it’s hard to think of doing anything with hazelnuts other than mixing them with chocolate. It’s easy to forget that Hazelnut (I prefer to call her Hazel) and Coffee are coffeehouse soul sisters. They love their guy pal, Chocolate, but sometimes they need some bestie time. I’m here to help.
I’ve created hazelnut coffee cupcakes with vanilla mascarpone frosting that closely mimic the aroma and flavor of a mug of hazelnut coffee. As you eat, your “mmmm” may transition to a soft acoustic coffee shop soundtrack. Just go with it!
