Finally the Christmas cookie surplus has diminished enough allowing me to break in my new kitchen aid mixer. (thanks babe!) First recipe of the new year? Coconut cupcakes with dark chocolate frosting. Frosting was delicious. Cake wasn’t overly sweet though not overly moist either. A bit of a surprise since it had plenty of sugar, butter, and coconut milk. The coconut flavor wasn’t as strong as I had hoped but the flavor combination did make me want to sing the Almond Joy/Mounds jingle. Thanks to Martha Stewart for the recipe. (she’s a fav of mine).
