German Chocolate Cupcakes
By Kelly Williams Wildflours
Even though this starts with a boxed mix, it's doctored well! And the homemade coconut pecan frosting and chocolate buttercream are from scratch. One of my favorite cakes in a pretty little cupcake! Very easy to make. Enjoy your day!

Add egg yolks only to saucepan. Beat to mix with whisk. Whisk in evaporated milk and sugar well. Add cut up butter. Over medium heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. (Takes about 15 minutes.) Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla, coconut and pecans. Let cool completely.
Beat softened cream cheese and softened butter for 4 minutes. Add vanilla. Beat in. Add cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Beat for 3 minutes. If it is too thick, add the milk or cream. If you prefer a darker chocolate, add more cocoa.
Pipe buttercream around edges to create a barrier. Fill centers with scoops of cooled German Chocolate Frosting.
