How to Make Almond Joy Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. How to Make it:
    Heat oven to 350 degrees and I line my cupcake pans with paper liners
    I then followed my cake mix recipe but I added 4 eggs and used milk for the water and add the oil as it says. I added in my 1 tbsp of coconut extract, coconut and the almonds into the batter and stir it up
  2. Then I chopped up my almond joy candy bars into small pieces, then dust them in 1 TB of flour(so they don't all sink in the batter) add this to the cake batter and stir gently.
    Fill cupcake liners with 3/4 batter each I got 24 cupcakes. Now that was easy.
  3. After you cupcakes are baked and cooled, you can frost them. I did use ready made frosting this time
    but you can make you own if you have time.

    Serve and Enjoy!
