I was very excited to be told that Ferrero Rocher would be advertising on my site. You may have noticed that I love desserts! So in celebration I decided that I would bake a tribute to the great chocolate.

This is my first Ferrero Rocher inspired dessert, but you can rest assured I have a few more planned to follow.  Top of the list had to be a cupcake!

Ferrero Roche Cupcake

The cupcake itself is a moist brownie style cake which has Frangelico, honey and melted dark chocolate to give it the rich decedent flavours found in the Ferrero.  The frosting is a lush Nutella and dark chocolate butter cream icing, and the “piece de resistance”, naturally a Ferrero Rocher chocolate is perched, pride of place!
