2 cups Flour
2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Nutella Spread
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Hershey's Dark Chocolate Morsels
1/4 tsp Shortening (not butter or margarine)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcake pans with 21 liners and set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
Cream butter with 1 cup of brown sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add Nutella and mix thoroughly.
Add the eggs and mix until combined, then add the remaining brown sugar and blend well.
Add the flour mixture and milk, alternating in small amounts, beating well after each addition.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into each cupcake liner. Bake cupcakes 25 - 30 minutes or until set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
