Chocolate-Almond Cupcakes with Fluffy Coconut Frosting

55 mins (prep 30)
16 ingredients
makes 12 cupcakes
These little gems stirred up our childhood memories of coconut-filled candy bars. We baked them in extra-large muffin cups to make them more like little individual cakes. If you choose to use regular-sized muffin cups, the recipe will yield 24 cupcakes and the cooking time will be shorter.
