DIY Coconut Island Crunch Cupcakes
Do you love the combination of caramel, coconut and chocolate? Well you are going to love these Coconut Island Crunch cupcakes. They are perfect anytime of year, especially when you are craving Girl Scout Samoas, but there aren't anywhere to be found.
I love creating new cupcake flavors and this is one was made for someone special, my Mom. I know she loves Samoas, so I guessed she might like these... and she did. I used my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, caramel buttercream frosting, toasted coconut and topped these cupcakes with a pretty melted chocolate drizzle. YUM!
