I love MOPS! Mothers of Preschoolers that is. I know, I know, my children are too old! That's right! I'm a Mentor Mom at MOPS. I just love the ladies and the fellowship I find at MOPS. We meet once a month at our church and take turns bringing the food. It was my turn to bring food, so of course I could not resist trying a new recipe- Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes- a similar flavor to Mounds candy bars says Tish Boyle author of "The Cake Book". What's not to like? But just in case I made the Vanilla, Vanilla cupcakes for those who are not Chocolate lovers. :)
I found out the lighting is dark at MOPS! Who knew?
Back to the cupcakes! The chocolate cupcakes had a chocolate coconut batter, were topped with a chocolate coconut milk ganache, and sprinkled with dried flaked coconut. Very rich and tasty! The Vanilla, Vanilla cupcakes are the same recipe I have posted before - a keeper for sure! This time I topped them with colored leaf sprinkles. They were were very festive.
The Chocolate Coconut Cupcake- Yummy! The rich chocolate ganache makes this cupcake!
