Dorie said the dough would resemble a paste which it did. Confectioners’ sugar, flour, baking powder and salt are combined. Then you add the egg yolks, vanilla, almond extract and melted butter.
I borrowed my neighbor’s mini muffin pan, thank you Tracy! I put about a teaspoon of batter on the bottom, a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella and then topped them off with the rest of the batter.
I decided to make the chocolate-dipped Nutella Buttons and I made the ganache (page 434). This was the best ganache and it goes really well with ice cream too:) I think the more chocolate, the better but the ganache made them a finger-licking dessert. I could see leaving them plain next time. My buttons came out more muffin-like than cupcake. I don’t know if this was from over baking or not. The family thought they got better the next day.
