Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Cupcakes

Mmmmm...Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Cupcakes! Chocolate and coffee in a cupcake sounds amazing!

Hello and welcome to the second installment of Late Night Snack! If you missed my Pink Lemonade Cupcakes last month, go check them out! If you know the Night Owls, you know that we love our coffee! And being that coffee is so near and dear to us, I decided to use our vice of choice to make this month’s sweet treat: Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Cupcakes! I know, it’s a mouthful, but trust me they’re worth saying AND making! A huge thanks to our fellow Night Owl Jessica of Flecky Photography for taking the pictures. And here’s all you need to make your very own. Enjoy!

Chocolate cupcakes made with mocha cappuccino hazelnut spread, topped with mocha frosting.

  1. Make the cake mix according to the directions on the box, except for the oil (mine called for eggs and water) then add the ½ cup of the Jif.
  2. Put the cupcakes in the oven per the package directions and remove to cool.

    I needed a quick recipe for a co-worker’s birthday that included chocolate, vanilla, and hazelnut. This recipe was perfect! I was unable to find the Jif spread, but substituted it with Nutella. It was a huge hit at work, and I had many asking for this recipe! I made sure to link them directly to this page! Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!
