Happy Birthday to me! Today is my 24th birthday, and I got this BEAUTIFUL new pink KitchenAid mixer! I broke that baby in right when it got here…yes I stalked FedEx all day and yes you know you’ve done it before too! I made these chocolate nutella whoopie pies with it, and they came out DELICIOUS. I give this recipe 5 stars 😉 The Nutella gives the frosting a hazelnut taste to it, which I love. You have to try this!
