Grease a muffin tin or line with paper muffin cups.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, salt and cocoa powder.
In another bowl, beat egg, milk, oil, chocolate syrup, and peanut butter for a minute or two.
Pour mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until batter is smooth. Do not overmix…
Spoon batter into the muffin tin, filling almost all the way to the top.
Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and press them down into the batter a bit by using a toothpick or a teaspoon…

Allow cupcakes to cool for 10-15 minutes before frosting them.
Frost the cupcakes with the Nutella frosting and decorate with sprinkles or white chocolate chips.
