Nutella Cupcakes

Do I still have Nutella ??

Before I go shopping, I always make sure if there’s a bottle of Nutella in the cupboard. It used to be our savior back in Lebanon. Yes, I live there for almost 6 months or maybe more. I kinda lost track. My point is, we were still student and we wanted to save money so we always have bread spread with the luscious Nutella for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To be honest, Nutella is not cheap either. But we rather spend a little bit more money for these thick chocolaty nutty Nutella because we just love it!

Even though now we are getting better financially, we still keep a bottle of Nutella in the cupboard. It almost became a tradition for us.
