I left work last Friday evening on a mission. A mission to bake cupcakes. And boy am I glad that I did. These were delicious and so simple.
If you like Mounds, you’ll love these.
1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix
Eggs, Oil and Water as described on box
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Coconut Extract
1/2 cup shredded coconut
I like to make my cupcakes in the extra large muffin pans (bake for 22 minutes), but if you aren’t a serious cupcake lover like myself, regularly sized cupcake pans are more than fine. Bake them as directed.
1 8oz pkg Regular Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 stick Butter (softened)
1 Cup Confectioners Sugar
1 TBSP Coconut Extract
Beat until well combined and creamy. Keep refrigerated.
I like to add a little more of the shredded coconut on top once they are frosted.
