Reviews for German Chocolate Cupcakes
"I fell in love with these cupcakes from the moment I tasted them! Coconut on top is a perfect garnish for good contrast!"
"I agree - I doubled the topping ingredients and baked at 375 instead of 400. They turned out perfectly!"
"This is a wonderful cupcake. My family does not like frostings, so this is perfect for them! The crunchy topping is delicious. I did double the topping ingredients and was so glad I did! This will be a new favorite!"
"This cupcake is so easy to make and tastes just like a big piece of German Chocolate Cake."
"would double topping, lower temp, my first batch got a little burnt, but second batch were a big hit!!"
