Almond Joy Cupcakes

Interesting thing about these cupcakes: I won’t eat them.  I don’t like coconut, and therefore, don’t like Almond Joy bars.  However, my coworker requested that I make an Almond Joy cake for her anniversary (pictured below).  Since it was just for her and her hubby, I had some batter left over that I decided to play with.   Plus I bought myself a cupcake corer a few weeks ago that I’ve been dying to play with.

I used this recipe for the cake, then just finished it a little differently for the cupcakes, using a chocolate sour cream frosting instead of the melted chocolate drizzled over the top.  Also, I switch out sour cream for the oil in the cake.  I think it makes the cake more moist and slightly healthier but doesn’t change the flavor.
