Recipe: Kinder Cupcakes

Yesterday, my boyfriend celebrated his 21st Birthday, and I wanted to bake something special that I know he’d love. And, as he’s obsessed with Kinder Bueno, I thought this would be the perfect treat!

There aren’t too many recipes online for this, except for a great one on Jane’s Patisserie, so I’ve followed her recipe as best as I can, but I have made a couple of alterations!

Ingredients for Cupcake Mixture: 

  • 175g Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 175g Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 140g Self-Raising Flour
  • 35g Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2tsp Hazelnut Flavouring (I actually used Almond as Hazelnut was difficult to find, but either is delicious!)
  • 3tbsps Whole Milk

Ingredients for Cupcake Frosting: 

  • 150g Unsalted Butter
  • 300g Icing Sugar
  • 100g Kinder Chocolate Bars, chopped (I actually used 150g just to make it that little bit more chocolatey, but of course this is up to you – and don’t add too much, as you don’t want it to be too gooey!)


  • Chocolate Cupcake Filling
  • Any Kinder goodies


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170C. Line a 12 hole muffin tray with large cupcake cases.
  2. Cream together the butter and the light brown sugar, either by hand or using a Kitchen Aid. Then, add in the eggs, flour, cocoa powder, flavouring, and beat again until fully combined.
  3. If the mixture seems a little bit stiff, add in some whole milk to make it slightly smoother.
  4. Spoon equal amounts of mixture (as best as you can!) into the cases, and bake for 18-20 minutes. Make sure they’re baked through before removing!
  5. When the cakes are still warm, but not straight out of the oven, make a small incision in the middle of each cupcake, and squeeze in the easy-fill chocolate filling.
  6. Then, once the cakes are completely cool, melt the Kinder Bars, either on the hob or in the microwave, until smooth. Leave to cool.
  7. Separately, beat the butter until smooth and add in the icing sugar, bit by bit, making sure it’s fully incorporated before you add the rest.
  8. Then, add your cooled, melted Kinder Bars and continue beating – this is much easier using a Kitchen Aid, so if you have one definitely make use of it!
  9. Finally, frost your cupcakes, and add any decorations you like! I’ve gone for a bit of a mix, with some Kinder Bueno’s, Kinder Chocolate Bars, and Kinder Mini Eggs.

These are absolutely delicious, and I’m sure you’ll love them! They’re a little bit different, but that’s what makes them so great!

If you give them a go, please do let me know how you get on!

Don’t forget to follow, with a new post every day at 6pm during the week, and 1pm on a weekend!
