Mini Teal cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream Frosting

It was yet another birthday at my work and I decided to make something other than my usual Linzer cookies..something simpler but equally delicious.

I used a basic boxed white cake mix for my cupcakes and added equal parts blue and green food dye to color them a nice teal color.

The baked mini cupcakes.

To make the Nutella Buttercream frosting:


  • 2 sticks of unsalted softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of Nutella
Mix the butter with an electric mixer until it's smooth and creamy. Then mix in the Nutella until it's a fluffy consistency. Add in the milk.

Next, add in the powdered sugar, cup by cup, until it reaches the desired "frosting-like" consistency. Spread on your cupcakes and enjoy!

You can add sprinkles as a finishing touch!
