Sweet Treats

            Festive chocolate cupcakes with coconut cream

 

I have to warn you: those cupcakes are a bomb!

They are maybe not as healthy as my recipes are normally, but they are good, very good ...

And sometimes you have to treat yourself and a cupcake like this is the perfect thing in my opinion.

The cupcake itself is juicy and full of chocolate flavor. It is sweet and soft. And together with the coconut cream it is a party in your mouth.

We had some leftover coconut cream and wanted to use it somehow, so we decided to make some chocolate cupcakes for our Easter brunch. And as it was Easter we allowed ourselves to something like that and enjoyed it to the fullest!

It was the first time we tried coconut cream and I am sure I will make it again, because it turned out great! It is only the solid part of a coconut milk can and a little coconut sugar blended together. But watch out a little, don't top your cupcake with too much of it, because it is really rich.

But in moderation with those chocolate cupcakes, it is a wonderful combination and completes the cupcake perfectly.

As my sister has great cupcake decoration skills, she made some coconut cream flowers and our cupcakes did not only taste amazing but also looked very festive! They matched our Easter table perfectly!
