No Tricks Please

Dear Neighborhood Kids,
I regret to inform you that I will be unable to provide treats for you this Halloween. Perhaps your parents have explained to you the state of our economy at the present time. While all of you little ghosts and goblins are off going door to door this Friday night I will be at work, and as I will be losing my job in just 3 weeks it is imperative that I do so. Please accept these Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes in lieu of Halloween candy. And please refrain from egging my house.
Happy Halloween,
Cinemon Girl


There was a lot of talk (and a lot of math) on the P&Q about the dryness issue of these cupcakes. I added 1 tsp of espresso to the batter, under baked them by about 4 minutes, and then piped in some nutella.


They were not overly most but they were dense and soft and I loved the glaze on top. I was on a tight schedule and had to forgo my grand decorating plans and stuck to a variety of Halloween sprinkles I had laying around.



Have a great Halloween everybody!

The nutella sounds fabulous as a filling. I think these benefited from something tucked inside. I'm sure your grand plans would have been fab, but the sprinkles are adorable. Good luck with everything!

Sorry to hear about your job, but I'm sure the neighborhood kids will understand. Nutella makes everything better though, right?

You'll get to start the new year with a new job! That's pretty exciting. And we've done plenty of Dorie recipes that would work as Christmas gifts. You're in business!

Really sorry to hear about your job. I'm about to lose my too. Maybe we should get together to bake and commiserate. Good luck!
