Scrumptious Nutella dark chocolate cupcakes with slightly salted Nutella buttercream frosting and dark chocolate ganache topped with Toffifee hazelnut caramel cups. These are an ultimate treat for Nutella & Chocolate lovers and the flavours work amazing together with the divine Toffifee combination of hazelnut, creamy nougat, caramel and chocolate – like the slogan says “There’s so much fun in Toffifee!
Yesterday was an unusual day for me. I was baking in pink in the morning and RUNNING IN PINK in the evening! I really enjoy running and I run for fun 2-3 times a week, I normally do short runs outside in the park or at home on the treadmill. Yesterday I took part in the Tel Aviv Women Run and ran my first 8K in a race. My speed was no where near the top but it was a nice and easy pace for me and I had so much fun! Starting from the excitement when picking up the pink running kit to the atmosphere at the event and the adrenaline rush during the run, it was a great experience and I will definitely do it again!I do not normally think much about my fuelling for running, for couple of reasons a) my runs are under 60 min, and b) I often run in the morning, drinking only water prior to the run. Yesterday’s run was no different for the first part but I did need to think ahead so that I’d have the energy to do the run at 9pm. So I had my heaviest meal in the morning, 10-hours before, including a delicious cupcake (and maybe a couple more toffifee’s – they are just irresistible!! ).
OK, seriously speaking traditional cupcakes aren’t really good fuelling foods (they’d need to be wholesome and healthier to be that). To me eating treats is all about balance with rest of the foods I eat and sneaking one to a race day did no harm. 🙂
I hope you are all having a great week and have some nice plans for the upcoming weekend.
