Double Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

Comment on this recipe

I entered this recipe in the 2010 Pillsbury Bake-Off contest. Even though it wasn't chosen as a finalist, everyone who sampled them said they were worth a million dollars.

Ingredients

1 box (19.5 ounces) Pillsbury traditional fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup sweetened coconut
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup light olive oil
2 large eggs
18 snack size (.6 ounces each) Mounds bars

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place paper cups in muffin pans. Unwrap Mounds bars. Pour dry brownie mix in a large bowl and stir in sweetened coconut. Add water, olive oil and eggs and stir until well blended. Scoop batter into paper lined muffin pans, filling 3/4 full. Shake pan lightly to level the batter. Bake one pan at a time on the middle shelf for 15 minutes or until cupcakes look slightly dry on top. Carefully remove pan from oven and gently press one Mounds bar on top of each cupcake. Return pan to oven for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and place on cooling rack. Let cupcakes cool in pan. Makes 18.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.

1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
