Samoa Cupcakes


Made these up on a whim today and can I just tell you they are the BEST cupcake I've ever had!!  Talk about heaven in a dessert!

Cupcake:
1 box chocolate fudge cake mix.  Make according to box directions (I add applesauce instead of oil)
pour into cupcake liners and bake for about 8 minutes


Place 1 Rolo on top of each cupcake- it will sink in (Optional)

bake for the remaining 10-12 minutes or until done.  Cool.

Frosting:
1 cube butter- very soft
1/2 package of powdered sugar (1# )
1/4 c. cocoa powder
2 t. coconut extract
1 t. salt
1/4 c. milk

Beat on high in your stand mixer with the whipper attachment until smooth and fluffy.  Add a little more milk if necessary- but make sure to mix it well first.  Pour into a piping bag and frost cupcakes.

Topping:
toast 1 c. coconut in a frying pan until golden brown. cool then sprinkle on top of frosting.
drizzle Carmel sauce (store bought) lightly on top of frosting & coconut

Enjoy!

*** AFTER NOTE***  If you aren't eating the cupcakes soon wait to put the Carmel sauce on until right before serving. I found they made the cupcakes soggy the next day.
