Chai Cupcakes

I have had a small obsession with making Chocolate Chess Pie recently. So much so that I made three of them in a week. (Don’t judge, I shared. The first one I made just for dessert, the second one I made because we had company, and the third one I made to show my friend how awesome it was.)

Joshua told me that I should start working on something else, since I managed to perfect the pie, I should move on to something else. (Sure, I will, after I make this one last pie, dear.)

I created this recipe by mixing a few recipes I had found and for the first time out of the gate, it turned out pretty well. It’s also nice because it is a smaller recipe, it only makes a dozen cupcakes, so there aren’t a lot in left overs. If you don’t have Coconut Cream Concentrate, I’d say you can go without it, just make sure to add just a bit more butter. To add the coconut flavor, sprinkle some toasted coconut flakes on top before eating.
