Mini Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl and Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

These Mini Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl and Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting are the perfect bite-sized treats! They are easy to make, they taste amazing, and they are adorable! I particularly love mini cupcakes because of their cute factor. Why are small things so cute?? Send them to school with your kids, bring them to a party, or snack on them with your significant other! In my opinion, nothing says, “I love you” like food does! Food is my love language! My boyfriend is a big fan of this fact — although he has started going to the gym more since we started dating 😉

Tips for Making Mini Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl and Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Whenever I think of cupcakes, I think of our friend Lizzy Early’s recipes! (Check out her blog here) I used her birthday cupcake recipe, but left out the sprinkles. They are so moist and rich. When you make the Nutella swirls, don’t worry about making them perfect…they will be covered up by frosting for the most part. See below for a picture of the cupcakes pre-frosting. Of course, you can make these in a regular sized cupcake pan, you’ll just have to bake them a little longer (18-20 minutes) and use a little more Nutella.
