I made these delicious cupcakes for my daughter to take to work. It's one of her co workers birthdays and she volunteered me to make her favorite cupcakes, instead of a cake... I was ever so happy to oblige, they love everything I ever send to them...

The frosting is killer, good luck trying not to lick the spoon...LOL

Enjoy!

How to Make ~Moist Chocolate Cupcakes & Coconut PecanFrosting~

Step-by-Step

  1. Frosting:

    I make this first to give it time to cool and thicken.

    Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan, except for pecans and coconut.
    Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently for about 12 minutes or until thickened.

    Add coconut and pecans, beat until thick enough to spread. It will thicken more as it cools. Good luck not wanting to lick the bowl...so good!
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.


    a medium sized bowl, add ingredients in order given. Don't mix until last ingredients been added.
  3. Beat well.

    Evenly distribute batter into cupcake liners or a lightly sprayed cupcake tin.

    Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a pick comes out clean.
  4. Remove to a cooling rack. If using silicone liners as I did...you can pop them out of the liners before cooled.

    Frost with the delicious coconut pecan frosting or your favorite.
