Nutella Buttons

It is a fact (and if it is not a fact then it should be made a fact) that tiny things are better.

Itty bitty dogs = adorableness
Little cars = fun
Tiny houses = more to love
Petite little top hats perch on fluffy white kittens = cuteness that literally hurts

It is also a fact (and this one is indeed a fact) that I have an unhealthy obsession with tiny baked goods. Wee little cupcakes, miniature brownies, petite loafs pans. I (heart) them all. But sadly because I live in an oh so tiny house I have had to limit my kitchen toys gadgets tools and thus I have never owned a pan to make wee cupcakes.

Until now!

After all if Dorie Greenspan says to use a mini cupcake pan then darn it I am using a mini cupcake pan. And if Dorie Greenspan says to make wee vanilla cupcakes filled with Nutella then darn it I am making wee little vanilla cupcakes filled with Nutella.

Sadly I wish I could say that the reason I immediately ate 3 of these tiny little buttons of goodness a few minutes after they came out of the oven was because Dorie Greenspan said for me to...but alas that is not true it is simply because I am weak when it comes to tiny little cupcakes (especially when filled with Nutella).

  1. Yes, these were so good. I only made a half batch to limit temptation.

  2. tiny little cakes mean you can eat them more often! filled mine with Trader Joe's Speculoos butter and topped them with ganache, overload of delicious!!!

  3. Yup, I had to remind myself that two of these was the equivalent of one. Cute cupcakes can be dangerous.

  4. These were good weren't they. Fortunately I have many tasters on hand to help limit my share.

  5. These were pretty much the perfect size!

  6. 'Dorie said to eat three little buttons' -- if only! (I laughed at this post!)

  7. I like your wee little cupcakes, perfect and delicious.

  8. those wee treats look wonderful! I'm sure you'll get lots of use out of your new pan!

  9. Cute! If I liked them, I would be in the same boat. Small treats are hard to resist!

  10. I liked the small bite size cupcake too! I think I am a fan now!
