TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:20 servings


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup brewed coffee, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth. Beat in egg. Stir in 2/3 cup chocolate chips. In another bowl, toss coconut with pecans and remaining chips.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk together first five batter ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together coffee, oil and vinegar; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
  • 3. Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full. Place scant 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture in the center of each. Top with about 1 tablespoon coconut mixture.
