Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes – Yummy!

I started with one of my favorite chocolate cake recipes, which you can find here, but modified a bit and made into cupcakes rather than the bundt.   Then I added yummy cream cheese frosting and flaky coconut, as inspired by something I saw on Food Network.  I’ll definitely be making these again.


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, melted butter, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, or until tops are springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Beat first three ingredients until smooth, add vanilla and mix again.  Frost cooled cupcakes and then dip the tops  into flaked coconut.
