Nutella Brownie ‘Cupcakes’ with Cream Cheese Frosting

I’m at it again with the Hipstamatic. This time in the kitchen while baking some amazing treats…4-Ingredient Nutella Brownie ‘Cupcakes’ with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.

I was having a chocolate attack and needed an infusion fast! Not much could be faster than these little tidbits–the brownie ‘cupcakes’ have only 4 ingredients…only 3 if you don’t use the cinnamon!

I whipped up a batch of these on Saturday and we iced them as we ate them. yum!

2. Add the nutella to beaten eggs and whip until blended.

3. Blend in the flour and cinnamon until incorporated.
