Why I Love This Recipe

Adapted From Two Recipes In Southern Living:

Only for those who LOVE Coconut!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 (18.25-ounce) package Swiss chocolate cake mix
2 (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 (6-ounce) package Milk Chocolate Morsels
1/4 cup Flaked Coconut


Prepare cake batter according to package directions; set batter aside.

Stir together cream cheese, sugar, and egg.

Stir in chocolate morsels and coconut.

Spoon cake batter evenly into 24 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each half full.

Drop cream cheese mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls evenly into center of cupcakes.

Bake at 350 for 19 to 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool cupcakes in pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes.

Remove cupcakes from pans, and cool completely on a wire rack.
