Almond Joy Cupcakes

These have to be my favorite cupcakes i've ever made! They we're so delicious I know you will love them too:) 

The cupcakes!

Here's where I found them:) 

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
3 large eggs
1 8-ounce container sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step1:In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Next add the oil, coffee, and eggs. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Then mix in the sour cream and vanilla.


Step2: Place in cupcake liners and bake at 350 for 20-23 minutes.


Frosting-
1 pound cream cheese at room temperature
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 1/2 pounds confectioners' sugar
7 Ounces of coconut flakes

Step1-Cream together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla and almond extracts. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix until smooth.

Now we can assemble these bad boys! Pipe a generous amount of frosting on the cupcake, after you do this place the cupcake into the freezer just until the frosting starts to harden. In the mean time melt some chocolate, after this is done we can spoon the chocolate on top of our cupcakes! This part smelt just like Hershey's factory, yummmm!! To top it off place an almond on the top:)

WARNING: This are HIGHLY addictive
