These tasty chocolate cupcakes get their names from the Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars. The main difference, just like the theme song from the commercial is that these treats, just like Mounds bars, don’t have nuts in them. Instead, they have a filling made from shredded coconut, powdered sugar and sweetened condensed milk. The frosting on top is a luscious chocolate ganche, which turns these into a pretty close representation of the aforementioned chocolate bars.
These Almond Joy cupcakes are an easy to make and seriously yummy comfort food. This recipe features a boxed cake mix, utilizes mini candy bars, and shares an easy frosting recipe and an even easier chocolate coating tip. If you find you are having “that kind of day”, where frustrations pile high like layers on a cake, you will love this blog post, and this cupcake. Serve as a dessert or snack.
