Nutella Cupcakes {Pinterest Inspired}

I'm been sucked into this Pinterest craze.  I knew this was going to be a slippery slope, but it's worse than I thought.

Worse still... I think Pinterest is trying to make me fat.

Think I'm kidding?

Why else would I be able to so easily find this Nutella Cupcake recipe.
