Double Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

February 24

A while ago we had a couple of friends over for dinner. I knew I wanted to make something sweet but didn’t want to bother with anything too fancy or that had any chance of failing, but I always like to try something new when I have the chance. Smitten Kitchen’s chocolate banana bread totally fit the bill (as her recipes often do). It’s something that I’ve been wanting to try as soon as I saw it but our classic banana bread is such a household staple, it’s hard to try “spend” our rotten bananas on something else. Luckily I made the executive decision to try something new, and as our apartment started to smell like the most delectable chocolate muffins, I knew it was a good choice. I didn’t know it then but that was the birth of these double chocolate coconut cupcakes.

Usually I have a fancy tea drink but sometimes I will have hot chocolate.

It was the first time I had spicy hot chocolate and it was delicious.

We were in superstore the other day and they were giving out samples of pudding. I didn’t have any but my boyfriend did and he asked me if it was even possible to make pudding at home. I said of course it was possible (although I had no idea how). Generally, I am pretty uptight about having any sort of packaged, processed snacks in the house, so a while ago, I said that as long as we don’t buy any pre-made stuff I would be happy to have a hand at making it (within reason). So, let the pudding adventures begin!
